With the SEMPER Solutions Hub, developers can quickly design safety-critical and inherently secured automotive, industrial and communications systems.
Infineon Technologies AG has announced additional development tools supporting the SEMPER NOR Flash device family. With the SEMPER Solutions Hub, a one-stop portal with all the building blocks needed to integrate SEMPER NOR Flash into an application, developers can quickly design safety-critical and inherently secured automotive, industrial and communications systems.
Infineon’s SEMPER NOR Flash is the first non-volatile memory architected and designed for functional safety and SEMPER Secure was recently selected as a CES 2022 Innovation Award Honoree in the “Cybersecurity and Personal Privacy” category. For developers of smart and autonomous systems used for connected applications, high reliability and functional safety in the event of failure are critical to successful design.
“With our broad portfolio of solutions, SEMPER NOR Flash memory along with the Solutions Hub allows developers to easily design for autonomous driving, factory automation and other mission-critical applications,” said Sandeep Krishnegowda, Senior Director of Marketing and Applications, Memory Solutions, Infineon Technologies, LLC. “With the growing complexity and demand for functional safety and secured systems, customers need industry-compliant and proven components that they can easily integrate into their designs, along with robust tools and resources.”
The SEMPER Solutions Hub provides the development edge needed to accelerate the design process. The web portal offers easy access to software development kits (SDKs) containing production-grade drivers and application code examples. Additionally, it offers hardware kits for prototyping with microcontroller (MCU) system boards from both Infineon and third-party suppliers, MCUs and available integrated development environments (IDEs). Supported architectures include the Infineon PSoC 6 and AURIX TC375, Raspberry Pi and NVIDIA Jetson Nano.
Infineon’s SEMPER NOR Flash meets or exceeds automotive quality requirements, and is ISO 26262 ASIL B-compliant, ASIL D-ready and AEC-Q100 qualified. The device is also IEC-61508 SIL 2-ready for industrial applications. The devices leverage Infineon’s proprietary MIRRORBIT technology to store two-bits per cell, enabling higher density devices.
With up to 400MBps bandwidth, SEMPER NOR Flash offers the performance necessary for instant-on applications, including automotive instrument clusters and industrial HMI systems. Infineon’s endurance flex architecture also allows individual partitions to be configured for 25 years data retention or for 1+ million P/E cycles. This allows a single device to be optimized for code storage, system data storage and data logging.
