ST Mi­cro­elec­tron­ics, a global semi­con­duc­tor leader serv­ing cus­tomers across the spec­trum of elec­tron­ics ap­pli­ca­tions, has boosted per­for­mance and se­cu­rity in its lat­est Telemaco pro­ces­sors tai­lored to sup­port richer con­nected-driv­ing ser­vices.

Telem­at­ics sys­tems that mon­i­tor on-board sen­sors and ex­change in­for­ma­tion with the Cloud are be­com­ing in­creas­ingly so­phis­ti­cated to sup­port high-value ser­vices in­clud­ing re­mote ve­hi­cle di­ag­nos­tics, road­side as­sis­tance, and Over-TheAir (OTA) soft­ware up­dates. In­fo­tain­ment fea­tures like lo­ca­tion-based ser­vices and ac­cess to per­sonal con­tent and con­tacts add fur­ther ben­e­fit for end users.

Over 72% of new cars glob­ally will be fit­ted with fac­to­ryin­stalled telem­at­ics sys­tems by 2021, ac­cord­ing to ABI Re­search, and there are op­por­tu­ni­ties for af­ter­mar­ket sys­tems, as well as OEM and in­de­pen­dent telem­at­ics ser­vice providers.

ST’s Telemaco con­cept helps max­imise con­sumer ac­cess to th­ese ad­vanced con­nected­driv­ing ser­vices through the cost-ef­fec­tive in­te­gra­tion of the telem­at­ics pro­ces­sor, se­cure in-car con­nec­tiv­ity, and sound boost­ing in a sin­gle chip. Un­like al­ter­na­tive de­vices, which are typ­i­cally based on an ap­pli­ca­tion pro­ces­sor or a GSM mo­dem with in­te­grated CPU (Cen­tral Pro­cess­ing Unit), ST’s lat­est Telemaco3 chips are tai­lored for telem­at­ics ap­pli­ca­tions and give ex­tra flex­i­bil­ity to choose the con­nec­tion type, such as 2G, 3G, or 4G. At the same time, the se­cure in­ter­face with the in-ve­hi­cle net­work is en­hanced with a hard­ware cryp­to­graphic ac­cel­er­a­tor, and con­nec­tiv­ity ex­tended with Gi­ga­bit Eth­er­net sup­port and the op­tion to host a Wi-Fi mo­d­ule that can be used as an in-car hotspot.

“To­day’s con­nected-driv­ing ap­pli­ca­tions have shown car own­ers how telem­at­ics ser­vices can help them gain more sat­is­fac­tion from their ve­hi­cles and jour­neys, and more so­phis­ti­cated new ser­vices will con­tinue emerg­ing,” An­to­nio Radaelli, Di­rec­tor, In­fo­tain­ment, Au­to­mo­tive Dig­i­tal Di­vi­sion, STMi­cro­elec­tron­ics, said. “As the in­dus­try’s only pur­posedesigned telem­at­ics and con­nec­tiv­ity con­trollers, our new Telemaco3 chips pro­vide the per­for­mance needed to sup­port next-gen­er­a­tion con­nected-driv­ing ser­vices and en­able au­to­mo­tive OEMs and af­ter­mar­ket ven­dors to bring com­pelling new prod­ucts to mar­ket.”

The Telemaco3 fam­ily com­prises the STA1175, STA1185, and STA1195 ICs, which pro­vide choices such as var­i­ous num­bers of CAN in­ter­faces and the op­tional DSP sub­sys­tem, en­abling users to scale their de­signs. De­vices are sam­pling now to lead cus­tomers, and full pro­duc­tion is sched­uled for De­cem­ber 2017.
