Renesas Electronics Corporation has introduced the RAA2S425x Family of ICs for automotive pressure sensing systems. The RAA2S425x Product Family features high integration and advanced digital and analog functionality that significantly ease the design cycle and reduce customers' system BOM and production costs. These new devices provide highly accurate amplification and sensor-specific correction of signals in automotive xEV/EV/FCEV pressure sensing braking, transmission, and HVAC systems. Moreover, these new ICs offer extended analog sensor offset compensation (XSOC), are adjustable to nearly all resistive bridges, and deliver pressure and temperature readings with high accuracy (0.35% - 1.0%) over a wide temperature range (-40°C to 150°C).


The RAA2S425x communicates digitally with calibration equipment, reducing noise sensitivity and this digital calibration enables customers to keep assembly costs low since it doesn't require trimming of sensing elements. These ICs integrate a 16-bit embedded RISC microcontroller that provides digital compensation of offset, sensitivity, temperature drift, nonlinearity and has highly-reliable non-volatile memory (NVM) to store calibration coefficients and configuration data in harsh automotive environments. 


Additionally, RAA2S425x is an optimal solution for safety and harsh automotive applications with integration of overvoltage and reverse-polarity protection circuitry, ASIL-B compliance according to ISO26262, excellent electromagnetic compatibility, and multiple superior diagnostic features.
