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.

Low cost, low risk memory

A low cost, low risk memory solution from Microchip is said to offer unlimited endurance and safe data storage at power loss. Called EERAM, the device is a standalone SRAM with a shadow EEPROM back-up that retains the SRAM’s contents when system power is lost.

Intersil unveils programmable gamma buffer for ADAS displays

Intersil has developed, what it says, is the lowest power 14-channel programmable gamma buffer for automotive TFT-LCD displays. The automotive-grade ISL76534 is capable of delivering accurate gamma calibration in order to ensure consistent brightness and colour matching of every LCD panel inside a vehicle.

First four channel video decoder with MIPI-CSI2 interface

Intersil has announced the ISL79985, said to be the first four-channel analogue video decoder with MIPI-CSI2 output interface. The device supports the latest generation of SoCs and ADAS application processors for around view systems. The ISL7998x family also includes the ISL79986 with a line-interleaved BT.656 interface.

Current sensing optocoupler for servo drives and motors

An optically isolated sigma-delta modulator, the Avago ACPL-C799 from Broadcom, claims to convert an analogue input signal into a high-speed data stream with galvanic isolation. It features a low differential input range of ±50mV, allowing designers to reduce power dissipation across a current-sensing shunt resistor in servo drive and motor applications.

Battery charger handles lead acid and Li-ion

An integrated, high voltage synchronous step down battery charger controller from Linear Technology uses temperature compensated three and four stage algorithms to charge 12V and 24V lead acid batteries. The part can also charge a multicell lithium-based battery stack with float voltages near to the input supply.

Eight-channel DC/DCs for multi-rail systems

The LTC3374A from Linear Technology is a highly integrated general-purpose power management solution for systems requiring multiple low voltage power supplies. The device can be configured to provide two to eight independent regulated outputs with 15 possible output current configurations and is suitable for a variety of multichannel applications, including industrial, automotive and communications systems.

Compact automotive grade LDO regulators

Two low dropout regulator families have been added to Rohm’s LDO portfolio. With its miniaturised package, the BUxxJA2MNVX-C series is said to be the smallest automotive-grade LDO regulator, whereas the BD7xxLx series provides quiescent current features.

Lowest power, cost-effective PIC32 family with core independent peripherals

Microchip Technology has announced the company’s lowest power and most cost-effective family of 32-bit PIC32 microcontrollers (MCUs). The Microchip PIC32MM family is claimed to bridge the gap between the company’s PIC24F XLP and PIC32MX families. The family is said to be the first PIC32 to feature core independent peripherals, designed to offload the CPU for lower power and lower system design. The PIC32MM devices are supported by the Microchip MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) to help simplify and accelerate designs.

Wide range non-isolated DC/DC converter series extended

TDK has introduced two models to the TDK-Lambda i6A series of step-down, non-isolated DC/DC converters. The i6A4W is claimed to be capable of supplying currents of up to 20A, and the i6AN allows the creation of negative voltages delivering currents up to 8A. Applications include medical, communications, industrial, test & measurement, broadcast and portable equipment.

High-performance GaN-on-SiC power amplifier

Qorvo’s TGA2976-SM gallium nitride (GaN) power amplifier, is now available through Mouser. Developed using Qorvo’s production 0.25µm GaN on silicon carbide (SiC) process, the TGA2976-SM is said to provide excellent wideband performance, power, power added efficiency (PAE), and gain.

Rugged Flash Drive five times faster with USB 3.0

Fischer Connectors has launched the USB 3.0 version of its portable, miniature, lightweight and tough Fischer Rugged Flash Drive. The memory stick has been designed for the safe transportation and storage of sensitive data in harsh environments.

High performance GFET3 integrated power switch range

Silego Technology has released a family of high-performance, GFET3 integrated power switches. Operating from 2.5 to 5.5V supplies, these single-channel GFET3 nFET integrated power switches are designed for all high-side, 0.8 to 5.5V power rail applications.

SimpleLink Wi-Fi modules simplify IoT connectivity

Murata has announced a series of two 2.4GHz IEEE802.11 b/g/n compliant wireless modules based around the TI CC3200 and TI CC3100 SimpleLink chipsets. These miniature modules, measuring 13.2 x 21.45 x 2.65mm are claimed to ease incorporating wireless internet connectivity to a host of embedded applications and especially internet of things (IoT) designs.

Single-chip load switch ICs reduce system power consumption

Toshiba has launched three single-chip load switch ICs, the TCK106AF, TCK107AF and TCK108AF. Integrating high performance chips in an industry-standard SOT-25 package, the ICs combine on-resistance ratings down to 63mO and low typical quiescent currents of 110nA with low loss, low standby current and high performance switching characteristics.
