FM4 is targeted for non-Automotive application. For your ECU application, I would like to suggest you check our Traveo (ARM cortex-R5) MCU and upcoming Traveo II (ARM Cortex M) MCU.
For more information about Traveo II or part selection of your application, please kindly get in touch with Cypress sales team or distributors.
Thanks for the quick response.
You are correct - our ECU application is safety-related, and a Cortex R would be more appropriate.
My question would be the same - are the peripheral units of the Traveo MCUs similar/identical ?
Taking a brief look a the FM4 peripheral manuals, the CAN unit register mapping looks identical to the FR60 one, apart from the different endianess.
Some peripherals are similar and please kindly check Traveo Hardware Manual for details.
For CAN, Traveo can support CAN FD.
The Traveo site left me a bit confused, actually.
But I assume all information refers to the "old" Traveo, unless it explicitly states Traveo II.
For evaluating the costs and practicality of a FR60 -> Traveo II porting, we would need more detailed information.
The Cortex M4/M7 part is interesting, but I guess I have to wait for the official release for more details.
Can I ask when the this official release is scheduled ?
Yes, your assumption is correct. Those information or materials about S6J3xxx on the product web-page are for Traveo family(ARM cortex R5), which is available now.
Please kindly get in touch with Cypress sales team or distributors for release schedule or preliminary information/documentations of Traveo II.
this clarifies the Traveo website a bit.
I had been discussing our idea briefly with a distributor I'm in touch with currently (for other reasons...).
As mentioned, there is nothing "cut and dried" yet, just the idea of an update project.
In our sector, there is usually some significant inertia + lag involved, due to safety certifications and replacement guaranties.
