Infineon and Autotalks to drive next-generation automotive V2X applications

1 min read

Infineon Technologies and Autotalks are to collaborate on the delivery of solutions for next-generation V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything communication) applications.

This collaboration will see Infineon provide its automotive-grade HYPERRAM 3.0 memory to support Autotalks’ TEKTON3 and SECTON3 V2X reference designs. TEKTON3 is a fully-integrated V2X system-on-chip (SoC) that’s specifically designed for driving actions by connectivity.

V2X enables vehicles to communicate with one another and their environment, leading to improved levels of road safety. Concurrent dual-radio and full V2X software implementations typically require external memory to manage modem and application requirements. HYPERRAM has been developed to address the cost, density and performance requirements for external memories that are used in these applications.

With HYPERRAM 3.0, Infineon extends the throughput of its HYPERRAM family to achieve 800 MBps (mega bytes per second) via a x16 HYPERBUS interface. HYPERRAM 3.0 devices are automotive qualified and are the ideal expansion memory solution to complement TEKTON3’s processing needs.

“Infineon’s HYPERRAM and NOR flash memories are ideal pairings for our latest generation of V2X SoCs,” said Amos Freund, Autotalks’ Vice President R&D.

“With the global V2X market expected to grow at a CAGR over 30 percent in the next five years, this collaboration with Autotalks comes at a great time,” said Patrick Le Bihan, Senior Director of Ecosystem Marketing at Infineon. “Our HYPERRAM and NOR Flash memories work seamlessly with Autotalks’ SoCs to deliver a low-cost, high-performance solution to customers in an energy-efficient manner. We are excited to team with a leading provider of V2X devices and look forward to an ongoing collaboration with Autotalks.”
