Skyworks Solutions Inc. announced that its industry-leading silicon-on-insulator (SOI) switching technology is now being utilized by European, Japanese, Korean and North American car manufacturers for advanced infotainment systems. Specifically, Skyworks’ solid state technology is enabling seamless low noise and broadband switching between audio, Blu-ray/DVD, navigation, cell phone and vehicle security display inputs as well as a variety of other high bandwidth media sources in automobiles.
Coupling Wave Solutions S.A. (CWS) announced that STMicroelectronics has adopted the WaveIntegrity™ analysis tools to remove risk caused by on-chip, package and PCB parasitics. Following multiple evaluations, STMicroelectronics is deploying WaveIntegrity across multiple groups.
To meet the demanding needs of pyrotechnic engineers, Vishay Intertechnology Inc. introduced a new massive electro-pyrotechnic ignitor chip (MEPIC) resistor offering Joule effect or flash ignition for fast firing times down to 250 µs.
In 2012 a major milestone has been reached for the Wi-Fi market: over 5 billion Wi-Fi enabled devices have been shipped in the technologies lifetime. Recent explosive growth has been largely driven by the smartphone and laptop markets but future success will be dependent on Wi-Fi penetration into newer markets such as connected home and automotive devices.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. announced a new IHLP® low-profile, high-current inductor in the 8787 case size with industry-high rated current from 9.7 A to 180 A and a high operating temperature to + 155 °C. The IHLP-8787MZ-5A offers high efficiency with maximum DCR from 0.17 mΩ to 28.30 mΩ and a wide range of inductance values from 0.22 µH to 100 µH.
AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation has introduced a new family of solid-state RF amplifiers that instantaneously covers the 10 kHz to 400 MHz frequency range with both 200 and 400 W models. The amplifiers are designed to deliver all the power required for applications using MIL-STD, DO 160, and other automotive standards. These models can be used independently or with AR's RF conducted immunity generators when specific tests require higher powers than our standard CI Systems can generate.
NXP Semiconductors and Audi have signed a strategic partnership for innovation that focuses on innovation speed and time to market in eight selected automotive electronics application segments.
Teseq Inc., a leading developer and provider of instrumentation and systems for EMC emission and immunity testing, now offers a pulse generator with improved accuracy. The FT 5531, an upgraded version of the FT 5530, supports classic and modern testing standards.
Agilent Technologies Inc. will feature the PXI-based TS-8900 Automotive Functional Test System at the Automotive Testing Expo (Booth 12024), Oct. 23-25, at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Mich.
Companies, governments, and industries are increasingly turning to RFID as they look to modernize their operations, becoming more efficient and enabling quicker, more convenient service. The traditional uses of RFID for the identification of animals, people, and within the automotive sector are continuing to grow and are projected to increase by $2.8 billion from 2012 to 2017. However, ABI Research’s new RFID Market Tracker found that modernizing RFID applications will grow twice as fast with annual revenues derived from these jumping by $4.5 billion in the same timeframe.
