Scaleo chip and ARM partner on microcontrollers optimized for powertrain systems; ICE, hybrid and EVs

Scaleo chip has entered into an agreement with ARM to combine the ARM Cortex-R5 MPCore processor with Scaleo chip technologies into OLEA, Scaleo chip’s new family of microcontrollers optimized for powertrain systems.

OLEA microcontrollers will embed ARM technology and deliver powertrain control solutions for advanced internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEV), hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) and electric vehicles (EV).

OLEA provides unique features and technologies including energy-saving flexible hardwired powertrain control, multi-core system integrity and deterministic Ethernet based communication. With its range of safety-critical features, the ARM Cortex-R5 processor will complement Scaleo chip functional safety dedicated functions to address the ISO 26262 standard.

The trend for high performance solutions that are also energy-efficient is fundamentally important for both the automotive industry and other markets, such as industrial automation and motor control. We look forward to working with Scaleo chip to address the requirements of car manufacturers and sub-contractors. By combining the innovative approaches of both companies, we believe that a new standard of powertrain solution will soon be realized, complementing the wider range of ARM technology-based infotainment, body control and safety solutions already available to the automotive industry.

—Keith Clarke, vice president of embedded processors, ARM

Scaleo chip and ARM plan to jointly promote and demonstrate solutions throughout 2012.
