Toshiba offers RF ICs specifically designed for various vehicle communications. These ICs provide voice navigation about traffic jams, accidents, highway junctions, etc. in real time and allow enrolled vehicles to pass through tollbooths without having to stop to pay. Thus, they help to improve the driving experience.
Chinese ETC transponder systems are usually battery-operated. Thus the ICs in the systems are required low-current consumption and low-voltage operation. To reduce current consumption, the TC32168FTG incorporates a wakeup capability that wakes up a microcontroller only when it detects a signal from an ETC gate. Additionally, the TC32168FTG features low-voltage operation, quick boot, simultaneous two-channel standby mode and so on.
