Can an ARM-based MCU help your #auto design? Learn more about how our functional safety MCUs work in ABS systems:

An anti-lock braking system (ABS) is a safety system that allows the wheels on a motor vehicle to continue interacting with the road surface as directed by driver inputs while braking, thus preventing the wheels from locking up and avoid skidding. An ABS generally offers improved vehicle control and decreases stopping distances on dry and slippery surfaces for many drivers. The primary input of the ABS system is the wheel speed sensor interface. Comparison of wheel speed sensor inputs can determine if individual wheels are slipping. Wheel speed sensors are typically Hall Effect, with preconditioning required to generate a readable digital PWM input to the MCU. Microcontroller – An automotive-grade ARM based microcontroller is used to compare speed sensor data, control brake cylinder pressure and control the return pump for each wheel brake cylinder. The MCU is also respons...
