Freescale’s Tire Pressure Monitor solution is real time monitoring and is for improved vehicle safety. Freescale utilizes its advanced integration techniques to provide a TPMS solution that provides real-time tire pressure monitoring, alerting the driver of improperly inflated tires. Freescale TPMS products are designed for the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 138 and car manufacturer requirements throughout the world.
Freescale’s tire pressure monitor sensor solution integrates a pressure sensor, 8-bit microcontroller (MCU), RF transmitter and either a single (Z) axis or dual (XZ) axis accelerometer into a single package. When installed in a module on the wheel rims, this solution provides real-time air pressure measurements for each tire that can be transmitted to the vehicle instrument cluster to instantly inform the driver.
