Spansion Expands Power Management Family with New 3-Channel DC-to-DC PMIC in Single-Chip Solution

Spansion Inc. started shipping samples of the Spansion(R) S6AP412A series of multi-channel DC-to-DC power management ICs (PMICs). The S6AP412A series--an expansion of the Spansion MB39C031 family of DC-to-DC buck-converter, programmable PMICs--supplies three channels of power on a single chip to cutting-edge system-on-chip (SoC) products, memory and peripheral products that make up the core of office automation equipment and network devices with advanced image and voice processing functions. Systems equipped with the latest SoCs require control of a 3-channel power supply sequence when starting up or disconnecting the power supply. The Spansion S6AP412A uses software to enable flexible and precise power supply sequence control. In addition, by enabling 3-channel power supply within a single chip, the BOM for the power supply block can be reduced and the board surface area can be reduced by approximately 30% compared to conventional products. The new product also uses the common Inter-Integrated Circuit (I(2) C) communication interface to enable switching to an optimum voltage according to the SoC operation mode and process conditions while maintaining the output, and is thus able to support both Dynamic Voltage Scaling (DVS) and Advanced Supply Voltage (ASV() technologies. The S6AP412A series also supports reduced power consumption by systems through precision control of the voltage used by cutting-edge SoCs. Spansion S6AP412A series samples are shipping now and production volumes will be available in September starting at $3.60 per unit for minimum volumes of 1,500 units.

Spansion Files Multiple Petitions with the U.S. Patent Office Challenging Validity of Macronix's Patent Claims

Spansion Inc. announced it has filed petitions with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) to invalidate the patents that are being asserted against Spansion by Macronix International Co. Ltd. and Macronix America Inc. in an investigation, No. 337-TA-909, that is currently pending at the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC). In its petitions, Spansion challenges the validity of three patents - U.S. patent numbers 6,552,360, 6,100,557 and 6,002,630. These patents address technologies directed to circuit designs and circuit layouts, which have long been known and used in the semiconductor industry. The PTAB's decision on granting these petitions is expected in early 2015.

Spansion Inc. Expands Traveo Automotive Microcontroller Product Family with New CAN FD Interface Offerings

Spansion Inc. started shipping samples of its Spansion Traveo automotive microcontroller S6J3100 series incorporating the high-performance CAN FD interface for enhanced in-vehicle networking. The new offering in the product family is focused on various automotive applications including body control module (BCM), heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC). Bosch invented the CAN standard many years ago and since then worked to improve in-vehicle communication through innovative solutions. Bosch introduced CAN FD as a seamless upgrade of the classic CAN technology the first time at the International CAN Conference in 2012. Like classic CAN, CAN FD enables highly reliable vehicle control, taking advantage of higher data rates with only a small impact on current software and applications. Spansion has started to supply leadership MCU products equipped with CAN FD. Features of the Spansion Traveo S6J3110 series: High-end 32-bit MCU for body control: Spansion leads the industry by integrating the microcontroller with the ARM Cortex-R5 core and with Bosch's advanced vehicle-mounted network technology CAN FD (maximum 5Mbps: S6J3110 series). It delivers high-speed vehicle communication while retaining compatibility with conventional CAN (maximum 1Mbps). Equipped with optimal macro for body control: The microcontroller is embedded with Spansion's top-class high-capacity flash memory (4MB) as internal memory. This flash memory enables readout after one wait for access from the CPU. Furthermore, the 144MHz high-speed operation is possible using a single power supply. Efficient utilization of CPU performance realizes high-speed memory access and low-power consumption. Security function: In addition to conventional Flash security, which protects data stored in the microcontroller, the S6J3110 series is equipped with SHE specification ver 1.1). The key management housed within the microcontroller is separated using hardware and an authentication function. This prevents data modification, theft and invalid access to the vehicle network. Partial wakeup: Normally, when A/D conversion is performed from the low power-consumption mode, the CPU is interrupted and the system returns to normal operation. Afterwards, it is necessary to start the A/D converter from the CPU. However, when using partial wakeup, power is cut to items other than the Real Time Clock (RTC). Then, once the RTC performs a specified count, the A/D converter is started and conversion begins without passing through the CPU. If conversion results are not within the scope of set values, it is possible to start the CPU through interruption. Partial wakeup makes it possible to lower power consumption even further when periodically checking for sensor malfunctions.
