STMicroelectronics: New Automotive Microcontrollers from STMicroelectronics Enhance Safety of Smarter Vehicles

Geneva, February 23, 2016 -
STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving
customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, has introduced
first microprocessors in theSPC57family that break new ground in automotive
applications by offering the industry's best combination of safety assurance
and cost/performance. Building on the successful 32-bit Power
Architecture(TM)SPC5 microprocessor platform, the new product family targets
cost-sensitive automotive systems that must meet the most stringent safety
requirements, up to the highest ISO26262 ASIL-D Automotive Safety Integrity
Level.

The new microcontrollers are system-on-chip (SoC) devices designed to meet the
challenges of entry-level vehicle safety-critical applications, including
airbags, ABS (Anti-lock Braking Systems) in cars and motorcycles, power
steering, and DC/DC converters/inverters for Hybrid/Electric Vehicles.

As the world increasingly embraces smarter cars, makers are meeting the
challenge to ensure that all the key functions are protected against random
failures, such as those caused by a single cosmic ray changing a bit in a
memory cell. ST's SPC57 devices are specifically designed to address this
challenge, providing highly competitive solutions for controlling vehicle
functions such as steering and braking while offering safety compliance to
the highest level combined with low-cost development paths.

"Safety is a key driver of developments in the automotive industry and
therefore also of the underlying semiconductor technology that is making cars
safer and greener," said Luca Rodeschini, Director Strategic Business
Development and Microcontroller Business Unit, Automotive and Discrete
Product Group, STMicroelectronics. "The SPC57 is a scalable, future-proof
solution that combines optimal cost/performance with full compliance to the
most demanding safety-assurance criteria, a long-term product-longevity
commitment to customers, and a comprehensive low-cost development ecosystem."

The SPC57 family is built using the world's most advanced 55nm automotive
technology with clock speeds up to 80MHz. As important, it is supported by a
full-featured, low-cost tool chain that is compatible with the existing
development infrastructure of current Power Architecture devices, enabling
rapid development of new cost-effective, safety-critical automotive systems.
The design ecosystem includes the free SPC5Studio development environment,
open-source code compilers, and a range of evaluation boards that start from
as low as $100.

The first four members of the SPC57 family are the SPC570S50E1 (512K Flash
memory in a QFP64 package), SPC570S50E3 (512K in QFP100), SPC570S40E1 (256K
in QFP64), and SPC570S40E3 (256K in QFP100), with the exposed-pad QFP
packages supporting increased user pin-out functionality and thermally
demanding applications. The QFP64 devices are available now, with the QFP100
devices scheduled for the end of Q1 2016.
