Cypress' Traveo MCU family and Flash memories will enable the centre cluster display of the 2017 Toyota Camry.

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. has revealed that automotive supplier DENSO Corp. has chosen Cypress' Traveo automotive microcontroller (MCU) family and FL-S Serial NOR Flash memory family to drive the advanced graphics in its instrument cluster for the 2017 Toyota Camry.

Traveo devices are 3D-capable ARM Cortex-R5 cluster MCUs that provide great memory savings, increased safety features and rich image capabilities. The FL-S memory in the cluster is based on Cypress' proprietary MirrorBit NOR Flash process technology, which enables a high-density serial NOR Flash memory by storing two bits per cell. The DENSO instrument cluster has 4.2- and 7.0-inch screens capable of audio, video and navigation in the centre display of the 2017 Toyota Camry.

"DENSO was the first mass production customer to adopt our Traveo automotive MCU family and we are pleased to continue our longstanding relationship with this flagship design," said Takeshi Fuse, senior vice president of the Automotive Business Unit at Cypress.
