As new Automotive and Industrial systems increase their features and complexity, nowadays most of the features are being controlled by MCU upon human or mechanical interaction such as buttons, switches, sensors, etc. Along with tighter and more robust requirements, markets are pushing for the best price-per-feature solutions for switch monitoring and feature control systems. To address such needs, Freescale created the MSDI family of devices, to provide integrated solutions, with multiple switch detection channels and flexible programmability through SPI communication, addressing many different needs in the Automotive and Industrial market without the need of sacrificing space, robustness, resources and design effort related to the implementation of discrete solutions that may provide limited capabilities for today’s demanding markets.
