With consumer paranoia about security at an all-time high, does automotive software development need to up its game in the quality stakes? The recent collaboration between automotive manufacturers and internet providers in the creation of the autonomous vehicle has sparked great consumer interest in the development
Maxim’s GMSL SerDes chipsets can be used to connect head-unit video data to rear-seat entertainment consoles.
As the auto industry continues pushing development of autonomous vehicles, cars are increasingly becoming sophisticated electronic systems on wheels. Take the Ford GT—with 10 million lines of code, this car surpasses the code volume of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner by 3 million lines!
In the popular usage of the term, “electric vehicles” are those whose propulsion systems are under at least partial electric power. Long touted as environmentally beneficial, hybrid vehicles such as Toyota’s Prius and Chevrolet’s Volt have been rather successful in capturing market share initially. Relative
Transportation systems can have input voltage ranges up to 14V (single battery automotive), 28V (dual battery trucks, busses, airplanes), or higher, and require one or more low voltage rails for digital systems. As a result, designs of such systems need to know how they can step down from high input voltages
Driverless vehicles require sensors to be able to provide distance readings in relation to a vehicle ahead, behind or to the side to a central controller. Radar, laser, infrared and optical cameras, and ultrasound can all be used to gather data about other vehicles, the surroundings, and the road. Cameras are
At just one atom thick, tungsten disulfide allows energy to switch off and on, but it also absorbs and emits light, which could find applications in optoelectronics, sensing, and flexible electronics. The NYU logo shows the monolayer material emitting light
Researchers at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering have pioneered a method for growing an atomic scale electronic material at the highest quality ever reported. In a paper published in Applied Physics Letters, Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Davood Shahrjerdi and doctoral student
The LTM8055 is a buck-boost μModule® regulator with a 5V to 36V input range that can be easily paralleled to extend load current capability. Its 4-switch buck-boost topology features high efficiency while allowing the input voltage to be below, at or above the output—with smooth transitions between
Innovation is the driver of progress in industrial automation. From the conception of the programmable logic controller (PLC) in 1968 to the introduction of the collaborative robots we see in industry today, technological developments continuously shape the industrial automation landscape.
LT8390 synchronous buck-boost DC/DC controller
Linear Technology announced the LT8390, a synchronous buck-boost DC/DC controller that can regulate output voltage, and input or output current from input voltages above, below and equal to the output voltage. Its 4V to 60V input voltage range and 0V to 60V output voltage range are ideal for voltage regulator,
