Cypress Semiconductor announced that Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage hasselected Cypress’ Semper NOR Flash for its next-generation Visconti family of automotive Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). Architected with an embedded Arm Cortex-M0 processing core, the Semper family is purpose-built for the most demanding automotive environments where high-density and functional safety compliance are required. The Toshiba Visconti ADAS SoC is specifically targeted for major automobile makers working toward Autonomous Driving level 2.

The Cypress Semper NOR Flash family leads the industry in Functional Safety compliance and was the first flash to be designed specifically to meet the ISO26262 automotive functional safety standard, reaching ASIL-B compliancy. Semper NOR Flash also supports automotive temperatures up to +125°C (AEC-Q100 Grade 1) and meets the density and performance requirements for storage in ADAS applications through Autonomous Driving level 5.
