Image sensor targets driverless cars October 22, 2014 Image sensor targets driverless cars Melexis has developed a CMOS image sensor that offers ASIL-ready support functions. The device is designed for use in camera-based Advanced Driver Assistance Systems and driverless cars. Excellent low-light capabilities enable downstream electronics to detect pedestrians even in the night. Read more Development system brings the Internet of Things to the vehicle October 22, 2014 Development system brings the Internet of Things to the vehicle Freescale Semiconductor has introduced a comprehensive hardware/software development system for enabling automotive grade Ethernet connectivity for next generation infotainment, instrument cluster, camera telematics and rear seat entertainment designs. Read more Audio bus technology takes on MOST, Ethernet AVB October 21, 2014 Audio bus technology takes on MOST, Ethernet AVB Analog Devices (ADI) has developed an audio signal distribution system for automotive use that could emerge in some environments as a strong competitor to established infotainment bus systems like MOST and Ethernet AVB. Read more 40V, 400mA output, step-down regulator has dual tracking LDOs October 21, 2014 40V, 400mA output, step-down regulator has dual tracking LDOs LT3668 is a 400mA, 40V step-down switching regulator with dual tracking LDO outputs packaged in an MSOP-16E. The LT3668 offers a complete, robust power solution for applications that require the power supply of a sensor to tightly track the power supply of a measurement ASIC. Read more Freescale rolls smallest TPMS module October 20, 2014 Freescale rolls smallest TPMS module With the model FXTH87, Freescale has introduced the world's smallest Tire Pressure Measurement System (TPMS) sensor. The sensor offers very low weight and power consumption but lacks strong data encryption despite earlier hacking attacks to the RF connection between TPMS and vehicle. Read more Motor-integrated inverter saves space, weight October 17, 2014 Motor-integrated inverter saves space, weight Siemens has developed a traction motor for electric vehicles with mechanics and power electronics in one casing. The integrated powertrain saves space, weight and costs for electric vehicles. Read more Enpirion adds PowerSoCs to Altera FPGA ecosystem October 17, 2014 Enpirion adds PowerSoCs to Altera FPGA ecosystem AEC-Q100-qualified PowerSoCs, asserts Altera, feature the smallest footprint, superior efficiency, excellent thermals, and high reliability. Read more Mono camera offers advanced object detection October 16, 2014 Mono camera offers advanced object detection Cameras for use in driver assistance systems are more than just an image sensor, combined with a basic data processing unit - they need to offer much more intelligence to offload the driver assistance. The S-Cam4 family that TRW Automotive has announced will go one step further: it will have an expanded ... Read more Single IC controls entire LED matrix headlight October 16, 2014 Single IC controls entire LED matrix headlight Adaptive matrix LED headlights are one of the innovations in the automotive industry that clearly improve driving safety and thus spread quickly across vendors. The obstacle to adopt them also in the more affordable vehicle classes lies in its cost, and in this context matrix drivers are a major cost ... Read more MATLAB and Simulink now include FPGA support features October 14, 2014 MATLAB and Simulink now include FPGA support features MathWorks has introduced Release 2014b with a range of new capabilities in MATLAB, including graphics and big data, and options in Simulink for accelerating model building and running consecutive simulations.
