(NEC Electronics) - NEC Electronics today announced the availability of their latest 32-bit microcontroller for the automotive market, the V850E/RS1. The V850E/RS1 controller is targeted towards real-time, safety-critical automotive applications such as restraint control modules.

Features include a  40 MHz V850E controller core, a 10-bit 16-channel analog/digital  converter with auto discharge and diagnostic functionality, a buffered clocked serial interface (CSI), and flash  memory with hardware in-circuit error correction coding (ECC).

"NEC Electronics is a leading provider of restraint-control microcontrollers for automotive original equipment manufacturers due to the extensive application-specific features that we integrate into our products," said Yoshiyuki Idogawa, general manager, 1st Solutions Division, NEC Electronics Corporation. "By supporting these features in hardware, not just software, NEC Electronics is providing its automotive customers with higher-performing, highly reliable products."

Automotive applications such as restraint control modules require fast performance to deliver the real-time response needed when deploying an airbag. Two versions of the microcontroller will be available, one with 256Kbytes flash memory and 16K of RAM, and the second with 128K of flash memory and 10K of RAM. Additionally, the V850E/RS1 MCU's buffered CSI enhances communication with ASICs in the restraint control module to further ensure error-free operation.

For customers adhering to manufacturing quality assurance processes, versions of the V850E/RS1 controller that are PPAP, AEC-Q100 and QS-9000 certified are available.

Pricing and Availability
The V850E/RS1 microcontroller is packaged in a 100-pin low quad flat package (LQFP). Pricing for the controller with 256K flash memory and 16K RAM is expected to be US$13.00 per unit in 100,000-unit quantities. Pricing for the controller with 128K flash memory and 10K RAM is expected to be US$10.00 per unit in 100,000-unit quantities. NEC Electronics will begin taking orders for engineering samples in April. Engineering samples of the V850E/RS1 MCU are scheduled to be available in July 2004 with mass production scheduled for third quarter 2005 at a production volume of 200,000 units per month. Pricing and availability are subject to change.
