Advantage PressurePro, world leaders in Tire Performance Management Solutions and TPMS technology offerings, announces it has chosen Freescale Semiconductor, a leading provider of embedded processing solutions, as its primary provider of TPMS chips. The announced selection, which will utilize Freescale’s FXTH8715 TPMS technology featuring world-class accuracy and small form factor, brings Freescale’s market-leading technology to PressurePro’s standard and large bore (OTR) sensors and further powers PressurePro’s TPMS+ product platform.
“We’re excited about our move to Freescale’s TPMS family,” states 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. Capitalizing on these capabilities, PressurePro has been able to enhance temperature readings to a resolution of 1 C, adding greater protection and savings for customers without compromising its 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,” says 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.
