Infineon Technologies extends its XC2000 automotive microcontroller (MCU) family to enable 32-bit equivalent performance at 8-bit prices. Addressing low-end and ultralow-cost automotive applications, the 16-bit devices support cost reductions of existing body (with XC2200 series), safety (with XC2300 series), and powertrain (with XC2700 series) designs. Typical applications for the new XC2000 devices include low-cost body control modules, low-cost airbags, or low-end engine management designs. Offering a Multiply Accumulate unit with digital signal processor functionality for dedicated filter algorithms, the XC2000 family’s cost-efficient 16-bit devices are based on a high-performance C166SV2 central processing unit with five-stage pipeline.
