France-based semiconductor company Silicon Mobility has introduced a new automotive microcontroller specifically designed for hybrid and electric powertrain control.
Aimed at OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, the OLEA T222 includes several features designed to make it suitable for all flavors of electrification, from micro-hybrids to pure EVs, including Integrated Belt Starter Generator, Crankshaft Motor driven Generator, Gearbox Motor driven Generator, in-wheel Motor or in-axle Motor, and DC/DC converter.
The OLEA T222 is designed to allow the downsizing of electric motors without compromising performance, as well as reducing the footprint of an Electronic Control Unit by limiting the number of components needed to build the application.
The OLEA T222 features Silicon Mobility’s AMEC sub-system, a hard real-time, determinist and parallel interface that combines an embedded programmable logic area designed for automotive constraints, and a specialized actuator/sensor peripherals unit.
The OLEA T222 is now in the demonstration phase. Engineering samples will be available to customers during the first quarter of 2017.
