Key Applications

Optimize a large number of critical, safe, and real-time in-car functions including:

  • Electric motor / Inverter control
  • High Frequency DC-DC converter control
  • On Board Charger (OBC) control

Key Benefits

Flexibility: Programable hardware and software to remove processing bottleneck issues and to enable customization

Real-Time: Timing predictable by design

Safe: Complying with industry safety standards, ensuring both chip level and system level functional safety. Rapid fault detection and corrective/containment actions enables faster turnaround and reaction times for the automotive sub-systems.

Open: Open architecture providing a hardware platform without any software dependency

Reduced BoM and Total Cost of Ownership: Without a need for additional DSP or other FPGA, OLEA®️ T222 FPCU reduces the total Bill of Material, offering direct cost savings for the customers

One of a kind

OLEA®️ T222 FPCU is a member of the OLEA family of automotive control solutions. The OLEA®️ T222 FPCU is the industry’s first Field Programmable Control Unit (FPCU), a new semiconductor architecture combining the hardware flexibility of the AMEC®️ real-time control unit with the software flexibility of a standard processor into a single chip.

AMEC®️ integrates parallel data paths between the acquisition and actuation peripherals and the Flexible Logic Unit (FLU). The FLU is an automotive specific, robust embedded programmable logic with multiple DSP resources. OLEA®️ T222 FPCU also features SILant®️, an ASIL-D functional safety integrated architecture. SILant®️ provides reliable countermeasures against various faults and increases fault coverage all the way upto the application level, without compromising the chip performance.

Unlike multi-core MCU which rapidly experience software bottlenecks, FPCU provides combination of hardware and software processing capability for high frequency, precise and complex control algorithm, while limiting heat dissipation. Using Silicon Mobility’s FPCU, the user’s control command can be programmed in hardware into FLU and delivers the unprecedented performances: 

  • 40x faster processing compared to legacy solutions​
  • 1000x faster fault detection compared to legacy solutions
  • 125x device heat reduction improving system integration​
