Cypress Semiconductor has announced it has expanded its automotive-grade portfolio with two USB devices—the EZ-USB-HX2LP 4-port high-speed USB hub and the EZ-Host full-speed USB host. The AEC-Q100 auto-qualified devices are ideal for automotive applications such as navigation, infotainment, vehicle data recorders (VDRs) and data loggers.
The EZ-USB HX2LP hub has a single Transaction Translator (1-TT) ideal for low-power applications. The device can connect to all low-speed, full-speed and high-speed USB devices on the downstream, and it supports both self-powered and bus-powered modes.
The EZ-Host device offers up to four host ports and can work both in stand-alone and co-processor modes. In co-processor mode, it can support interfaces such as SPI, HSS and HPI. With 32 general-purpose I/O (GPIO) pins, the EZ-Host device can be configured to provide extended functionalities.
Cypress’s automotive portfolio includes the PSoC programmable system-on-chip, USB embedded hosts and hubs, timing solutions, fast asynchronous SRAMs, MicroPower asynchronous SRAMs and synchronous SRAMs.
