High-performance Cockpit Computer
Broad product portfolio and advanced technologies enable next-generation cockpit system design
The cockpit domain controller (CDC) provides high computer processing power and enhanced user experience, also supporting different operating systems (OS) through a scalable hardware platform. Typically, such systems are enabled by high-performance system-on-chip (SoC), microcontroller, memory, Wi-Fi & Bluetooth®, power supply, and sensor components. In the move to the cockpit controller, our broad product portfolio enables fundamental functions.
The TRAVEO™ T2G-B MCU family offers high performance (up to dual Arm® Cortex®-M7, 1500 DMIPs), wide scalability (memory density and package line-up), best-in-class energy efficiency (deep sleep mode: 35 µA, hibernate mode: 5 µA), ASIL-B functional safety and an integrated hardware security module (HSM).
The PSoC™ automotive family offers in-cabin touch solutions from a single source. Automotive-qualified MEMS microphone sensors provide supreme audio reception in dynamic environments.
Connectivity and communication:
Broad Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® portfolio supports various in-cabin wireless connections. CAN, LIN transceivers, and system basis chip (SBC) families connect the head unit to in-vehicle networking.
OPTIREG™ PMIC, linear, and switcher devices support reliable power supply; USB-C PD controllers support fast charging (up to 100 W) with best-in-class interoperability and compliance with all kinds of mobile devices.
Broad automotive-qualified NOR flash, SRAM, and F-RAM portfolio provides safe, secure, and reliable data storage.

Scalable family solutions with wide compatibilities on both hardware and software support designs from low- to high-end systems with less design effort.
Best-in-class performance of sensing solutions (touchscreens, microphones, etc.), wireless solutions (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth®), and fast-charging solutions (USB-C PD) improves customer experience significantly.
Secured MCU, secured memory, and secured connectivity support secured firmware updates over-the-air (FOTA) and safeguard consumers from cyber-attacks.
Total cost of ownership:
Broad portfolio provides a one-stop shop on both commercial and technical which significantly reduces purchase cost as well as system design effort.
Infineon is leading in real simultaneous dual band (RSDB) solutions providing simultaneous operation in both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, as well as multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) support. RSDB solutions provide the necessary bandwidth and the software architecture required to support complex use-case scenarios for cars, enabling combinations of AP, station, and P2P connections simultaneously.

Infineon parallel NOR flash devices and serial NOR flash devices feature automotive-proven MIRRORBIT™ technology to ensure data reliability and the high endurance required for frequent writes over the product lifespan. In addition, they provide fast system boot times and different densities to scale platforms. Infineon’s NOR flash solutions are AEC-Q100 grades 1 to 3 qualified to meet automotive standards for a wide operating temperature range.
Infineon's automotive F-RAM has no write delays and data is immediately non-volatile. F-RAM offers a virtually unlimited endurance of 100 trillion read/write cycles. This enables much more compact and robust designs compared to conventional EEPROM solutions.
Infineon’s HYPERRAM™ 2.0 is a high-speed, low-pin-count, self-refresh dynamic RAM (DRAM) for high-performance embedded systems requiring expansion memory. HYPERRAM™ 2.0 offers HYPERBUS™ and Octal SPI interfaces that draw upon the legacy features of both parallel and serial interface memories while enhancing system performance and ease of design, as well as reducing system cost.
Automotive XENSIV™ MEMS microphones are suited to all applications inside and outside the car, where the best audio performance in harsh automotive environments is required. These automotive microphones enable distortion-free audio capture for all speech-related applications, improving speech intelligibility for voice recognition algorithms. In addition, our sensors perfectly support microphones for ANC (acoustic noise cancellation) with flat frequency and stable phase response. XENSIV™ MEMS microphones are qualified according to the state-of-the-art automotive quality standard AEC-Q103-003.
With an increasing number of audio channels per product, traditional class D amplifiers face design challenges in compact designs: Low power efficiency, excessive heat generation (even at moderate sound levels), and the need for bulky, costly filters. Infineon’s MERUS™ multilevel class D audio amplifier circuit technology – the world’s first of its kind – has made it possible to improve power consumption while reducing electromagnetic interference and out-of-band noise. Manufacturing costs can also be reduced by eliminating or minimizing the use of filters, helping to save design space.
