Advantage PressurePro has chosen Freescale Semiconductor as its primary provider of TPMS chips, the company announced recently.
“We’re excited about our move to Freescale’s TPMS family,” said Jeromy Mogharbel, PressurePro’s director of engineering. “Freescale is renowned in the automotive sensing sector and they stand behind their technology, something we credit highly in those we choose to with. Further, their new offerings give us added capabilities that we intend to fully utilize to help keep our offerings the gold standard in TPMS.”
Included in these added capabilities is Freescale’s high range and accuracy for both temperature and pressure, as well as built in accelerometers, the company said. PressurePro added that it has been able to enhance temperature readings to a resolution of 1°C, adding greater protection and savings for customers without compromising their sensor’s market leading battery life.
“We are very pleased with Advantage Pressure Pro’s FXTH8715 choice and appreciate the opportunity to contribute to their creation of outstanding TPMS end-products that help optimize the reliability, safety and fuel efficiency of trucks and large vehicles,” said Bob Johnson, business development manager of Freescale’s Sensor Division.
PressurePro’s new Sensor lineup, featuring Freescale’s FXTH8715 technology, is expected to be released in Q3 2015.
