The reference design key components are:
- ST’s SPC572L Line 32-bit Power Architecture® automotive-powertrain microcontroller
- L9177A high-integration IC hosting power supplies
- interfaces and load actuators, which are specifically designed for the application and market needs.
- ST’s STGD18N40 IGBT and L9616 CAN interface IC are also included.
The board is ready for customers to develop their applications, coming with a full ecosystem, including SPC5Studio Integrated Development Environment (IDE) which includes low-level drivers, a Generic Timer Module (GTM) configurator for the SPC572L Line, and powertrain libraries for engine crank position sensor and actuations. To overcome the complex challenges associated with electronic fuel injection, a basic application software developed in association with ST Partner eMoticom helps users start and manage a single-cylinder engine.
