new tire pressure sensor from infineon is industry\'s first \'single-package\' solution for u.s. auto safety requirements
Infineon technology gathered at the 2006 trade show today (NYSE: IFX)(FRANKFURT: IFX)
The SP35 tire pressure sensor is introduced, the first device to combine all the main functions of the wheel
Installation of tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS)
A separate module.
Highly integrated equipment installed on a PCB (
Printed circuit board)
Complete TPMS modules are formed by batteries and antennas, and automotive industry suppliers can obtain costs in the following areas
Effectively meet the requirements of the US government. S.
Safety regulations and address the growing demand for TPMS for new passenger cars and light trucks worldwide.
The SP35 is a tire pressure sensor based on Infineon\'s extensive experience and expertise in delivering TPMS solutions

Our experience enables us to provide state-of-the-art technology.
Our goal is to keep growing. more-
Smart sensors will help make cars safer, and as they begin to play an increasingly important role in engine management, smart sensors will reduce fuel consumption and pollution levels. \"The U. S.
TPMSs requirements for light vehicles (
Less than 000 pounds.
It is being put into use in stages in 2006, with 2007 new cars nationwide.
Automakers and tire suppliers are implementing solutions to measure key parameters of tire pressure and transmit this information to the control system.
When the pressure of any one tire or any combination of up to four tires is lower than the manufacturer\'s recommended cold pressure of 20%, a driver warning is generated
In order to meet customer needs and safety objectives, tire pressure monitoring is also being adopted in other regions, especially in Europe.
Infineon is a market leader in automotive safety application sensors and related integrated circuits, including TPMS, airbags, ABS and electronic stability control and rollingover sensors.
In fact, every new car in the world has an average of five sensors from Infineon to support security applications.
Packaging, price and availability of the SP35 tire pressure sensorDSOP-14 package.
The device is suitable for tire pressure range from 100 kPa (14. 50 psi)to450 kPa (65. 25 psi).
Samples from the SP35 version are now priced at $8 and are expected to produce 2007 in the third quarter. Ahigher-
Pressure version (
From the range of 100-800 kPa)
It is planned to go public in early 2008.
The sensor is based on Infineon\'s patent three-in-one
Stacktechnology with best servicein-
Media compatibility in harsh automotive environments.
Infineon is one of the few semiconductor manufacturers that offer three major sensor groups (
Pressure, magnetic and inertia)
Electronic products for safety and power system as well as body and convenience.
