Embedded USB host controller operates in automotive temp range

San Jose, Calif.—Cypress Semiconductor Corp. has optimized its CY7C67300 EZ-Host embedded USB host/peripheral controller for automotive applications.

The device is compliant with AEC (Automotive Electronics Council) Q100 specifications, offering an operating temperature range from -40°C to 85°C. It is targeted at automotive infotainment applications, including interfacing MP3 players, mobile handsets and GPS systems with in-vehicle radios and display systems.

Cypress recently received certification for Automotive Industry Quality Standard ISO/TS 16949.

The CY7C67300 EZ-Host embedded USB host/peripheral device contains a high-performance 16-bit RISC microcontroller, two configurable USB serial interface engines (SIEs) and a configurable I/O block that can connect to numerous standard interfaces. It can operate as either a host or peripheral, and supports up to four host ports.

It contains 16-Kbytes of RAM, enabling custom applications; multiple CPU interfaces; and on-board BIOS to handle a portion of the USB processing. The embedded processor eliminates the need for an external CPU in many applications and can operate in coprocessor mode as well.

The AEC-compliant CY7C67300 is available in a 100-pin TQFP package. Pricing in 1000-unit quantities is $8.67.
