NXP Introduces AEC-Q100-Compliant GPIO with Interrupt and Reset
Building on its leadership in smart and secure solutions for connecting the car, NXP Semiconductors today announced the AEC-Q100-compliant PCA9538PW/Q900 and PCA9539PW/Q900 General Purpose parallel Input/Output (GPIO) for I2C-bus/SMBus applications. Available as 8- and 16-bit GPIOs with interrupt output and hardware reset input, these new interface devices now comply with the automotive industry’s stringent AEC-Q100 quality specification and are rated for 4.5V to 5.5V operation.Alon
The introduction of these new AEC-Q100-compliant GPIOs further supports NXP’s vision of connecting the car. From telematics and car-to-x communications to smarter infotainment systems, NXP is creating the devices making the connected car a reality.
Jens Hinrichsen, general manager, Interface Products, NXP Semiconductors, said, “Offering a new GPIO with interrupt output and hardware reset input meets the next-generation design requirements of our customers. By taking existing, market-proven products and putting them through the AEC-Q100 compliance process, NXP has grown its automotive solutions portfolio and has already delivered over 100 million interface product units to the automotive industry.”
The PCA9538PW/Q900 and PCA9539PW/Q900 are both released and shipping in volume.
