Integrated airbag system IC

Application & Technical Summary


CG904 is essential to realize a compact, dual-chip airbag control unit only consisting of a microcontroller and system IC.

The IC provides 16 firing loops and six PSI5 sensor interface.

CG904 unites all peripheral system functions of an airbag control unit:

  • Power supply for microcontroller, onboard sensors, and energy reserve
  • Digital interfaces for peripheral sensors
  • Safety controller for microcontroller monitoring
  • Airbag deployment firing loops

Product benefits

  • Supports a wide range of microcontroller families
  • ISO-compliant design
  • Chip variants available from for system configurations from entry level to high-end
  • Simple design-in due to hardware and software compatibility

Sophisticated safety concept

and extensive diagnostic routines
