Infineon Technologies, together with the German automotive supplier, Hella, has developed innovative radio frequency components for a radar sensor, which reliably monitors the blind spot in the car’s rear section.
Coilcraft's new AGP4233 series shielded power inductors offer a unique combination of high current handling and high inductance, making them ideal for high-current power supply and filtering applications such as those used in electric vehicle start-stop systems.
Dr. Ian Gresham, Anokiwave Distinguished Fellow of Technology has been named a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for technical leadership in commercial automotive radar sensors.
With its R&S RTE and R&S RTO oscilloscopes, Rohde & Schwarz is one of the first suppliers to offer analysis solutions for the CAN flexible data (CAN FD) interface protocol. A new option enables design engineers to analyze CAN interfaces that support the high speed CAN FD bus protocol. These interfaces are seeing increased use in automotive and industry applications due to rising data rate requirements.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, announced its acceptance as a technical committee member on the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC). The AEC provides common part-qualification and quality-system standards for the automotive electronics industry.
When developing radar sensor chipsets, users can now use the new Rohde & Schwarz solution to simulate a realistic scenario in the lab. For example, it is possible to simulate vehicles with different moving profiles or stress tests in different environments. As a result, developers can verify the signal processing algorithms of the sensor at an early stage.
As governments around the world encourage consumers to buy safer vehicles, automobile manufacturers are striving to build vehicles that consistently achieve higher New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) ratings. Texas Instruments (TI) is introducing the newest member of the automotive system-on-chip (SoC) family, the TDA3x solution.
