MPS SOLUTIONS FOR INTELLIGENT DRIVING
The four modern trends of the automotive industry are electrification, intelligence, networking, and sharing. Among these development trends, intelligence requires advanced on-board sensors, controllers, and actuators. Highly intelligent systems tend to have more sensors. As such, the number and variety of cameras/sensors installed on cars increase daily. These include the cameras installed on th...
AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRONICS RELIABILITY TESTING STARTS AND ENDS WITH THE MISSION PROFILE
Automakers must design vehicles to thrive in a broad spectrum of environments, from snowy tundras to scorching deserts. Unlike most consumer applications, where the expected lifespan can be months, automotive electronics are often expected to last 15 years or more. When specifying a vehicle component, it is common for OEMs and their suppliers to develop an automotive mission profile, which is esse...
EASY, COST-EFFECTIVE PRE-BOOSTER FOR AUTOMOTIVE COLD CRANK CONDITIONS
Start-stop functionality is expected to be featured in more and more new car models from any manufacturer. However, this presents a challenge in automotive electronics design as starting the motor in cold weather can make the battery’s voltage drop as low as 3V. This is called a “cold crank.” The power stage for most 12V automotive systems consists of a single buck converter tha...
MPQ3910A REFERENCE DESIGN - HIGH VOLTAGE BOOST FOR APD IN LIDAR APPLICATIONS
Autonomous vehicles have been a hot topic for some time, but now they are staring to become a reality. To enable high degrees of autonomy, vehicles are using combined methods (cameras, radar, and LiDAR) to detect surroundings. LiDAR is a ranged device. It functions similarly to radar, but uses light waves instead of RF waves. A laser diode emits light pulses, and an advanced photodiode (APD) sens...
