RF Devices for Automotive

RF ICs for automotive communication applications provide a wireless communication capability to operate automotive devices and monitor operating conditions. Their applications include remote keyless entry (RKE) systems that remotely lock and unlock car doors and tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) that monitor the air pressure of vehicle tires and show warnings for low and high pressure on the instrument cluster.

RF-Devices Application : Remote Keyless Entry System

This is the block diagram of the Remote Keyless Entry System.

Transceiver IC : TC32306FTG

  • Multi-band operation (315 / 434 / 868 / 915 MHz)
  • Provides industry-leading receiver sensitivity performance. Low-power and thus energy-efficiency
  • We also offer an RF receiver version IC.

This is the block diagram of the TC32306FTG transceiver IC.

* TC32306FTG is an RF transceiver. Toshiba also offers RF receivers. For details, contact your Toshiba sales representative, or ask to Contact us page.

TC32306FTG Demonstration Board

This photo shows the TC32306FTG transceiver IC demonstration board.

This board can demonstrate as the transmitter, receiver and answerback features of remote controller. The on-board organic EL display shows possible RKE operations so that you can select one easily.
The registers in the on-board transceiver IC are programmable.

This figure shows an overview of the functionality of the demonstration board.

* Toshiba offers an IC evaluation board and an RF reference board as an aid for system development. For details, contact your Toshiba sales representative, or ask to Contact us page.
