Bosch, Freescale collaborate on airbag platform

Automotive supplier Bosch group and chipmaker Freescale Semiconductor announced that they have combined their positions in automotive electronics and systems expertise to create an automotive airbag reference platform for the growing automotive safety segment in emerging markets such as India and China.


Automotive supplier Bosch group and chipmaker Freescale Semiconductor announced that they have combined their positions in automotive electronics and systems expertise to create an automotive airbag reference platform for the growing automotive safety segment in emerging markets such as India and China.

The new airbag reference platform is based on chipsets from Freescale's Qorivva 32-bit microcontroller (MCU) family and Bosch's Airbag ASSP family and works with sensors from both companies. It demonstrates how Freescale's Qorivva MPC560xP MCU family, a scalable MCU used for safety applications, works with Bosch's CG147 Airbag ASSP family, a single, integrated airbag system IC that combines power supply, firing loops, sensor interfaces, and a safety controller.

The reference design platform comes with preloaded demonstration software. Sales and application support for their respective components will be offered by Bosch and Freescale individually.

The companies plan to make the airbag reference platform available in the first quarter of 2012. It is scheduled to be first demonstrated at the Freescale Technology Forum (FTF) India and FTF China events.
