Automotive Infotainment Systems
The automotive infotainment system integrates the automotive navigation systems and entertainment systems and allows both systems to access the vehicle’s audio system and displays. This allows the navigation system to interrupt the entertainment system and communicate important driver information, like directions or traffic information, without the driver needing to intervene. These systems use nonvolatile memory to store settings, status, and navigation data on power loss.
Cypress Parallel NOR Flash devices are the ideal solution. They feature Automotive proven MirrorBit™ technology to ensure data reliability and have the high endurance required for frequent writes over the product lifespan. In addition, they provide fast system boot times and different densities to scale platforms. Cypress’s NOR Flash solutions are AEC-Q100 Grade 1 to 3 qualified to meet automotive standards for a wide operating temperature range.
