Freescale Now Shipping Vybrid Controller Solutions With Customized ARM® Development Studio 5

Freescale Semiconductor (NYSE: FSL) is now shipping Vybrid controller solutions with the ARM® Development Studio 5 (DS-5™) development environment, simplifying development of traditionally complex applications that need rich human-machine interfaces (HMI) and connectivity, as well as deterministic real-time control and response capabilities. Freescale Vybrid controller solutions are built on an asymmetrical-multiprocessing architecture platform that leverages Freescale's heritage as a leader in microcontroller development and multicore design.

The ARM DS-5 toolchain is offered within the Freescale Tower System to seamlessly generate, debug and optimize code for both ARM cores in Vybrid devices.

“This custom version of the ARM DS-5 toolchain for the Freescale Tower System supports low-cost development and optimization of systems built on Vybrid controller solutions,” said Michael Norman, technical marketing manager for software and tools strategy at Freescale. “Packaging the ARM DS-5 toolchain with the Tower System modular development platform significantly reduces the cost of market entry and gives Freescale customers access to support from the extensive ARM community to supplement the support they receive from Freescale.”

Vybrid devices are ideal for applications including simple HMI in appliances and industrial machines, secure control of infrastructure and manufacturing equipment, energy conversion applications such as motor drives and power inverters, ruggedized wired and wireless connectivity, and control of mobile battery-operated systems such as robots and industrial vehicles.

Vybrid controller solutions: rich apps in real time

Samples of Vybrid F series VF3xx, VF5xx and VF6xx devices are now available. The Vybrid VF3xx family is a single-core (ARM Cortex ®-A5) solution with 1.5 MB on-chip SRAM, dual XiP quad SPI memory interface, XGA display controller, dual high-speed USB with PHY, dual Ethernet and an L2 switch. The Vybrid VF5xx family increases performance and adds a DDR2/3 memory interface. The Vybrid VF6xx family adds an ARM Cortex-M4 processor and an analog video ADC.

Vybrid devices also provide a powerful combination of on-chip encryption, secure boot, anti-tamper and anti-clone capabilities to secure sensitive or critical infrastructure applications such as smart grid or industrial control.
