The high level of scalability allows the SPC58 family to perfectly address the ever-growing need for in-car automotive networks with high bandwidth and strong in-vehicle security. The devices combine Ethernet and ISO CAN FD1 communication interfaces with the latest Hardware Security Module (HSM) technology to ensure functional integrity of the car’s Electronic Control Units (ECUs), intrusion detection, and protection against malicious attacks.
ST’s in-house embedded Flash (eFlash) 40nm process technology is ideal to integrate high performance and outstanding automotive-grade reliability in very small packages, enabling car gateways and body modules to be smarter, smaller, and lighter.
“Building on the success of our SPC56 Automotive MCU family, which is widely used by Tier-1 and car manufacturers, the new SPC58 enables the automotive industry to raise the bar in security and in-car communications,” said Fabio Marchio, General Manager Automotive Digital Division, STMicroelectronics. “The next generation of smarter cars will rely on electronic systems based on MCUs that provide the best combination of performance, low power consumption, high security, and robustness. ST’s SPC58 MCU lines meet all these needs, making them the leading solutions for next-generation in-car controllers.”
The SPC58 family, optimized for Car Body and Security applications, offers a highly scalable line of products with industry-leading benefits, including:
“Tomorrow’s connected car will communicate with everything, from its internal systems such as transmission, advanced driver-assistance electronics, and front panel to roadside infrastructure, emergency services, and other cars. And it will have to provide the highest level of security,” added Marchio. “The SPC58 Automotive MCUs, with their unique combination of performance, connectivity, security, and scalability, allow car makers and their sub-system suppliers to set new standards in ensuring a safer, greener, and more enjoyable driving experience.”
The new products are part of a comprehensive ST strategy to offer products with embedded security functions that include stand-alone Secure Elements.
Samples of the SPC58 B-, C- and G-Line MCUs have been provided to lead customers and full production is scheduled for Q1 2017.
