Within the world of electronics developments in Automotive can be crucial to design engineers. At New Electronics we are aware of the importance of staying abreast of the recent advances in and the impact it can have on your role, that’s why we have collated all the latest news in one place.

Extension to PCB design tool

Altium has released MCAD Co-Designer: Solidworks, an extension for Altium Designer that provides integrated design data and a managed design revision environment between electrical and mechanical design teams working in Altium Designer and Solidworks respectively.

Buck controller eliminates intermediate power conversion

The ISL8117, from Intersil, is a 60V synchronous step-down PWM buck controller that can bypass the intermediate step-down conversion stage traditionally employed in industrial applications. Its low duty cycle (40ns minimum on time) enables the direct step-down conversion from 48V to a 1V point-of-load. This makes it possible for designers to reduce system complexity and solution cost in industrial, factory automation, medical and communications infrastructure applications.

Ultra flexible touch displays

Varitronix announced a range of ultra-flexible LCDs that accept a curve with a radius as tight as 12.5cm. The displays are manufactured in sizes said to be close to that of a credit card and are suitable for use in industrial, commercial, automotive and medical applications.

Navigate through digital power system design

Version 5.2 of Intersil's PowerNavigator software is now available. The package, which can be downloaded free of charge, helps system designers to configure, validate and monitor systems featuring the company's PMBus enabled digital power products.

Simplifying digital power conversion

Helping designers to maximise the advantages of digital power conversion, including high efficiency under load conditions, enhanced safety, rich diagnostics and convenient network connectivity, STMicroelectronics has released the STNRG range of digital controllers.

Time-lag fuse with enhanced overcurrent and surge capability

Littelfuse has introduced the 835 Series Fuse, a time-lag, ceramic body ac fuse. The 835 Series is the first fuse from Littelfuse to combine an unparalleled I2t value, a maximum interrupting rating of 1500A at 250V ac and 1.5kA 8/20µs surge withstand capability in a 5 x 20mm footprint. Current ratings of 5A, 6.3A and 8A are available.

Syfer extends AEC-Q200 qualified devices

Knowles capacitor brand Syfer Technology has improved its offering of AEC-Q200 qualified devices in order to meet increasing demands from the automotive market by extending its ranges of Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCC’s) and EMI filter products.

Toshiba launches 4500V 1200A IEGT module

The MG1200GXH1US61 PMI has been launched by Toshiba Electronics Europe. It is a high-current 4500V, 1200A power module for use in rail traction, industrial motor control, renewable energy systems and electricity transmission and distribution applications.

Cypress samples 4Mb asynchronous SRAMs with ECC

Cypress Semiconductor has begun sampling 4Mb asynchronous SRAMs with Error-Correcting Code (ECC), which enables them to provide higher levels of data reliability, without the need for additional error correction chips. As a result designs can be simplified and board space reduced.

Silicon Labs offers scalable car radio system solution

Silicon Labs has introduced a complete portfolio of receivers/audio processors and multi-standard digital radio ICs designed to deliver AM/FM and digital radio performance for the global car radio market. The new Si46xx family, which includes single-chip digital radio-coprocessors and data receivers, provides an advanced digital radio audio decoding and data reception solution for analogue and digital radio.

Eight port Ethernet switch is rugged

The NM10 from MEN is an unmanaged eight port Ethernet switch supplied in a compact box PC format and available in four standard configurations. In addition to 100Mbit or 1Gbit Ethernet interfaces, the switch is available with or without Power over Ethernet Plus functionality (PoE+).

Cree adds four 650V SiC diodes to its range

Four 650V SiC diodes have been added to Cree's portfolio. Developed in response to the power supply industry's demand for components with a nominal voltage rating higher than 600V, the Cree Z-Rec SiC Schottky diodes enable high efficiency power systems with improved reliability, simplicity and total cost.

MOSFET drivers come in small packages

Microchip has announced what it says is the first in a new family of power MOSFET drivers. Featuring a new driver architecture for high speed operation, the MCP14A005X and MCP14A015X are available in SOT-23 and 2 x 2mm DFN packages. The small packaging enables higher power densities and smaller solutions, while the design targets fast transitions and short delay times that allow for responsive circuit operation.

Single cell battery charger for auto applications

Intersil has announced the ISL78692, a 4.1V single cell battery charger designed to extend the life of Li-ion batteries in automotive emergency call systems. The ISL78692 battery charger has a lower leakage current – said to be 3µA – than competing solutions, allowing the backup battery to remain charged for a longer period. Lower charging voltage also extends battery life, whilst the device's small footprint reduces total solution size.
