ONSEMI INTRODUCES LOW-POWER AUTOMOTIVE-GRADE WIRELESS MICROCONTROLLER
NCV-RSL15 combines the industry’s lowest power consumption and the latest in embedded security for vehicle access, tire monitoring and more.
onsemi recently announced an ultra-low power automotive-grade wireless microcontroller with Bluetooth® Low Energy connectivity. The NCV-RSL15 is ideal for vehicle manufacturers who are increasingly favouring wireless connectivity to reduce the cost and weight of excess cabling as the number of sensors and in-vehicle communication grows. The new microcontroller also addresses heightened security concerns resulting from more sensors and with that more possible attack vectors.
The NCV-RSL15 is certified by the EEMBC as the industry’s lowest power-secure, wireless microcontroller. Featuring the proprietary smart sense power mode, it is designed to use as little power as possible. Being able to conserve more battery directly equates to increased product longevity.
The NCV-RSL15 also offers the latest in embedded security with Arm® CryptoCell™ featuring hardware-based root-of-trust secure boot, many user-accessible hardware-accelerated cryptographic algorithms, and Firmware-over-the-Air (FOTA) capabilities to enable future firmware updates and deployment of security patches.
With its rich library of sample code, the comprehensive and easy-to-use software development kit provides a springboard for application development. Along with 24/7 development community support, onsemi makes it easy to design in.
