Automotive head unit designs have evolved from the traditional hardware interfaces into sophisticated infotainment systems that offer various in-cabin functionalities. These features include navigation, wireless connections, passenger entertainment, gesture recognition, and voice control. As consumer expectations for infotainment features continue to increase, manufacturers face design challenges such as reducing driver distraction, protection against cybersecurity threats in the connected environment, and accommodations for charging and data transfer needs. Mid-range head units provide cost-effective, simplified technology to enhance the features and performance of the central interface, in addition to compliance with ISO26262 safety standards and EMI mitigation.
Our outstanding portfolio of automotive-grade parts includes low-dropout (LDO) regulators, step-down and step-up converters, power modules, load switches, analog switches, and PMICs. These parts meet temperature and EMI requirements, while also effectively minimizing total solution size.
MPS’s reliable, cost-effective power management solutions provide everything you need to power the next generation of mid-range head unit designs.
