NXP now delivers the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of FlexRay transceivers to the automotive market - offering OEMs a one-stop shop for their FlexRay networking designs. Fully compliant with JASPAR and EPL 3.0.1 certifications, NXP’s complete FlexRay portfolio is expected to further promote the adoption of FlexRay technology within the global automotive industry.The
As cars continue to evolve into ever more sophisticated and connected environments, there is an increasing demand from manufacturers for flexible, cost-effective in-vehicle networking solutions designed for specific automotive applications. NXP’s FlexRay transceivers are ideal for safety-relevant applications such as ADAS, chassis and power-train sensors, enabling communication with the ECU in a fast, reliable and deterministic manner. As such, they complement other high-speed transceiver technologies such as Ethernet, which are better suited to infotainment applications. Furthermore, the faster rate of data exchange (10Mbps) that FlexRay enables between ECUs also means that the vehicle is more responsive, and can deliver more efficient fuel consumption and a reduction in CO2 emissions.
“With the launch of the TJA1083, TJA1085 and TJA1086, we now offer the most complete FlexRay portfolio in the industry, further underscoring our position as the world’s No. 1 supplier of FlexRay transceivers, with more than 15 million pieces shipped to date,” said Rob Hoeben, director of marketing and business development for NXP Semiconductors’ Automotive business line. “NXP is committed to helping our customers bring fast, reliable and cost-efficient applications to the cars of the future.”
