As vehicles continue to integrate electronic control unit (ECU) networks for cutting-edge functionality, the automotive central gateway controller plays a central role in bridging and managing the transfer of data across various protocols (e.g. CAN, FlexRay, LIN, Ethernet, and ISO-9141). The central gateway achieves physical isolation between ECU networks, as well as portability between protocols to support communication between a vehicle’s different functional domains. These features are integral for cybersecurity and emerging Internet of Things (IoT), services such as software updates over the air (SOTA) and car sharing. Modern central gateway controllers require significant processing power and security, in addition to meeting ISO26262 safety standards and EMC regulations.
Our sweeping portfolio of power solutions includes power modules, watchdog timers, low-dropout (LDO) regulators, step-down and step-up converters, and USB charging ports. These components are engineered to ensure powerful, reliable central gateway controllers in a small package, while also complying with strict temperature and EMI requirements.
MPS’s highly effective, scalable solutions provide everything you need to power the next generation of central gateways.
