ST extends ARM licence to ARMv8-R for advanced automotive designs September 30, 2015ST extends ARM licence to ARMv8-R for advanced automotive designs STMicroelectronics has licensed further ARM 32-bit processor technology for use in real-time safety-related Smart Driving applications. The ARMv8-R architecture combines real-time performance and functional safety features. Read more Dead reckoning enables exact 3D navigation September 28, 2015Dead reckoning enables exact 3D navigation Urban canyons, this expression describes narrow streets amidst towering skyscrapers or in tunnels, both hampering the reception of navigation signals from satellites. Chipmaker STMicroelectronics (ST) counters the problem with a new firmware for its Teseo-III automotive navigation devices. The company promises that the positioning will be always available and accurate – by means of a navigation technique used in the early years of aviation: Dead reckoning. Read more ST rolls central crash sensors for airbag systems September 22, 2015ST rolls central crash sensors for airbag systems  Airbags are said to be the single innovation in the car that saved most lives. STMicroelectronics (ST) now introduced two new crash sensors for installation in a central location inside the vehicle. With the move the chipmaker completes its portfolio of airbag control devices – the company already offers peripheral crash sensors, airbag control ICs and safety microcontrollers for airbag applications. Read more STMicroelectronics offers qualified HAL firmware for embedded systems September 2, 2015STMicroelectronics offers qualified HAL firmware for embedded systems The latest set of Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) firmware included in the design ecosystem of the STMicroelectronics STM32 ARM Cortex-M core 32-bit microcontrollers has been developed in compliance with the MISRA C guidelines and the demanding ISO/TS16949 standard for automotive quality system management. Read more PLS lines up debug offering for ST’s latest automotive MCUs September 2, 2015PLS lines up debug offering for STÂ’s latest automotive MCUs The UDE test/debug environment is available at the same time as the first MCU samples of STMicroelectronics’ SPC58 E-line multi-core automotive MCUs: PLS says that its UDE version 4.4.6 supports all the MCUs’ functions.
