Date of issue:


 Infineon Technologies AG and TSMC announced the companies are preparing to introduce TSMCs Resistive RAM (RRAM) Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) technology into Infineons next generation AURIX™ microcontrollers (MCU).

   Embedded Flash microcontrollers have been the main building blocks of automotive electronic control units (ECU) since the introduction of the first engine management systems. They are essential components for clean, safe and smart cars, used in propulsion systems, vehicle dynamics control, driver assistance and body applications. They enable major innovations in the automotive space with regards to electrification, new E/E architectures and automated driving. Currently, the majority of MCU families in the market are based on embedded Flash memory technology. RRAM is a next step in embedded memories that allows to further scale to 28nm and beyond.

   Infineon is already shipping samples of its AURIX TC4x family to lead customers that are based on TSMCs 28 nm eFlash technology. The first samples based on 28 nm RRAM technology will be available to customers by end of 2023. More information is available here.
