China's Dongfeng Motor Corp. and Freescale Semiconductor of Texas are teaming up to develop silicon, software, and system-level solutions for the automaker's next generation of vehicles, the companies announced Jan. 21. Areas of development include body electronics, powertrain control, and hybrid-electric vehicle technologies. The technical cooperation involves a series of Freescale microcontroller (MCU) platforms, including 32-bit Power Architecture MCUs,16-bit S12X, and 8-bit S08 devices, as well as analog ICs. One of Dongfeng’s significant technology achievements is an electronic control unit (ECU) development project based on Freescale’s S12 MCU, which has gone into mass production.
