The need for more automotive safety is driving the adoption of radar-based advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Radar has been used primarily in premium-line vehicles and forward facing radar applications due to system restrictions, bill of material costs and physical size. The MPC577xK family delivers a solution that helps to move radar into mainstream vehicles and other satellite radar nodes, in addition to the forward facing radar node.
The MPC577xK family of 32-bit MCUs, built on Power Architecture® technology, provides high levels of digital and analog integration and performance within a single chip for next-generation radar-based advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and industrial applications.
The MPC577xK family removes the need for additional external components to the MCU, that are typically used in existing radar systems, such as an FPGA, ADC, DAC and SRAM thus reducing the overall number of components within the system, the size of the PCB and the complexity of software. The MPC577xK MCU family when combined with the MR2001 77 GHz packaged radar front-end chipset offers a complete system level radar solution for ADAS applications such as adaptive cruise control, emergency braking systems and blind-spot detection, as well as industrial applications. MPC577xK MCUs are SafeAssure ® functional safety solutions .
