Continental and Texas Instruments Inc. (TI), through a collaborative effort, offer the first 65-nm ARM Cortex safety microcontrollers with Flash technology in volume production, claim the companies. The Continental processor for advanced control in electronic braking systems is the foundation for the Continental MK 100 family of electronic stability control (ESC) systems. This 65-nm Flash technology also serves as the foundation for TI's Hercules safety MCU open market products. The Continental MK 100 ESC systems provide a high level of safety integration, and Continental proprietary safety MCU architecture with TI’s 65-nm embedded Flash enable many benefits for automakers: smaller form factor, more storage space in vehicles; a modular approach with a wide range of functions; improved cost/performance ratio; and enhanced safety architecture and features.
