Cypress: automotive touchscreen controller with cryptographic engine

first_img Continue Reading Previous Allegro MicroSystems: ISO 26262/ASIL-D power management IC for automotive control unitsNext Infineon: fully integrated SVID and PVID enabled voltage regulator Cypress Semiconductor introduced a new automotive capacitive touchscreen controller family, the TrueTouch CYAT817 touchscreen controller family specifically to meet rigorous automotive quality standards. The family offers an advanced hover capability that can detect a finger up to 35 mm above the screen and a force touch capability that provides accurate measurement of the pressure applied by multiple independent fingers. The family’s integrated acoustic and haptic feedback control provides faster response times for a better user experience compared to systems where the processing of a touch and pressure applied are not measured on-chip.The Automotive TrueTouch CYAT817 controller family implements its Hover and Force Touch features while meeting stringent automotive electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility requirements. With a power-efficient 32-bit Arm Cortex-M processor and optimized analog front-end, each controller can replace the mechanical on/off button of an infotainment system with a capacitive touch sensor, enabling sleek, modern interior designs. The controllers deliver faster response times by integrating decision and control processing on-chip for acoustic and haptic feedback so that systems are no longer required to transmit data on a touch input via Controller Area Network or a Low-Voltage Differential Signaling backchannel for distributed implementations to be processed in the head-unit.The CYAT817 controllers can support two standard host interfaces such as I2C and SPI, along with a CAN interface for either higher system integration or to implement redundancy for safety relevant applications per ISO 26262. The controllers protect against hacking with a cryptographic engine that securely encrypts communication with the head-unit, preventing unauthorized access of touch data containing sensitive user information that could allow reverse engineering of PINs or passwords.Cypress AutoArmor meets car manufacturers’ most challenging EMC requirements for chip-level emissions (IEC 61967), conducted (IEC 62132) and radiated (ISO 11452) immunity, as well as for system-level (CISPR 25) specifications. AutoArmor uses automatic frequency hopping to prevent false touches caused by EMI from other electronic systems, and it uses TX frequency spreading to reduce electromagnetic emissions by up to 30%.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components last_img

10 months agoLiverpool could lose Salah after strong season – Mido

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Liverpool could lose Salah after strong season – Midoby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool could lose Mohamed Salah if he has another 25 goal season, Egypt legend Mido has claimed.The 26-year-old bagged an incredible 44 goals across all competitions in his debut season for the Reds.After a slow start to the season, Salah now has 16 goals to his name. And Mido believes his continued success would attract attention from the world’s biggest clubs.Mido told CNN: “You never know in football.”If Barcelona or Real Madrid come for you your head is going to flip, all the players are like that.”Barcelona and Real Madrid are different – no disrespect to Liverpool.”I think Barcelona and Real Madrid were waiting to see how Salah would do this season; they don’t buy players after only one good or great season.”I think if Salah scores 25-plus goals, I think they will come for him and it will be difficult for Liverpool to keep him.” last_img

They sent a photo to the senior guard, who is a big fan of his new snow doppelganger. “@sgregg12: Sir Josh!

Eletson Gas Evergas to Form LPG Alliance

first_imgzoom Seaborne transporters of liquefied petroleum gas, the Greek Eletson Gas and Danish Evergas, have decided to form an alliance that will trade the companies’ semi-ref/ethylene capable vessels. To be called the E3 Pool, the new venture, which will commence trading on January 30, will control the 15-strong fleet of gas carriers that are currently trading.A further four vessels, scheduled to be delivered to Eletson over the next twelve months, are also set to join the new venture. “A larger fleet will provide more flexibility and more options for charterers, reduce voyage related expenses through optimization of voyages and thereby reduce greenhouse gas emissions as a direct consequence of using less fuel for cargo movements,” Evergas said.“The petrochemical market has a number of established trade routes that require critical mass to service properly. The cooperation with Evergas in the context of the E3 pool will give us the ability to offer our customers the high level of service and the optionality that they require,” Vassilis E. Kertsikoff, Chairman & CEO of Eletson Gas, said.Eletson Gas currently operates a fleet of five MGCs, two Handymax and five Handysize ethylene-capable vessels. The company has four Handysize ethylene capable vessels on order, scheduled for delivery in 2017 and 2018.Evergas’ fleet consists of six 5.000 cbm pressurized vessels, nine 12.000 cbm semi-ref/eth vessels and eight 27,500 cbm multigas LNG carriers.last_img

Energy sector helps boost Toronto stock market loonie steady

first_imgStrength in the energy sector, boosted by rising oil prices, helped lift Canada’s main stock index Tuesday while the Canadian dollar was largely unchanged.The S&P/TSX composite index closed up 26.97 points to 15,616.36 as the May crude contract rose 2.7 per cent.The rise in oil prices came from expectations of a shrinking supply glut as well as from the potential shift in U.S. policies towards Iran, said Craig Jerusalim, portfolio manager at CIBC Global Asset Management.“There were comments coming out of OPEC with rising demand and flat OPEC production that that supply glut was getting narrowed faster than expected. So as long as OPEC doesn’t change their policy, that glut should continue to narrow and be supportive for energy prices.”The gains were, however, mixed for energy companies, with exploration and production companies generally climbing while Canada’s biggest pipeline companies Enbridge Inc. and TransCanada Corp. continued to decline after a U.S. taxation ruling last week, said Jerusalim.Declines on materials and base metals also weighed on the TSX as First Quantum Materials Ltd. dropped 12.37 per cent to $18 after being hit with $10 billion in duties, penalties and interest from the Zambian government.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average was up 116.36 points to 24,727.27. The S&P 500 index was up 4.02 points to 2,716.94 and the Nasdaq composite index was up 20.06 points to 7,364.30.Facebook continued to decline in the U.S. as it faces scrutiny over data privacy, a contrast to gains for Shopify in Canada that was up 5.21 per cent after announcing an expansion of its “shopping on Instagram” feature internationally, said Jerusalim.“Really we’re seeing two different stories on technology north and south of the border. South of the border, it’s really all about watching privacy and personal data issues.”The Canadian dollar closed at 76.47, up 0.01 of a US cent, largely unchanged ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve rate guidance Wednesday.The May crude contract was up US$1.41 to US$63.54 per barrel and the April natural gas contract was up three cents to US$2.68 per mmBTU.The April gold contract was down US$5.90 to US$1,311.90 an ounce and the May copper contract was down four cents to US$3.04 a pound.last_img

Then he did it again. And again. And again. He eventually carded a 13 on the hole — tied for the worst score on any hole in Masters history — on his way to finishing a gruesome 9-over par.
