Around the world, sponsors and fans of the Nuon Solar Team are celebrating the success of the Nuna6 in the 2011 World Solar Challenge. With its impressive Silver Cup finish, the Nuna6 solar car has proven that it is one the world's most energy-efficient vehicles. The spirit, resourcefulness and perseverance of the Nuna6 team -- in the midst of especially grueling racing conditions this year -- are an inspiration to us all.
As a sponsor, NXP® Semiconductors supplied ultra-low-power Arm® Cortex®-M0 microcontrollers with on-chip CAN transceivers, CAN drivers, LCD microcontrollers, logic, diodes and transistors for the Nuna6. The rugged, dependable CAN bus has made a particularly important contribution to the vehicle's steering wheel, increasing the reliability of data transmission in in-vehicle communications.
