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 Software predicts EV driving range based on multiple parameters October 22, 2014 Software predicts EV driving range based on multiple parameters Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed software that estimates how much farther electric vehicles can drive before they will need to recharge. 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 Visteon concept marries data security and connectivity October 21, 2014 Visteon concept marries data security and connectivity Automotive supplier Visteon plans to extends its fame as a designer of unconventional, innovative car dashboards. At electronica, the company will showcase a new cockpit that specifically takes into account data security. 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 Breakthrough for traction batteries? Ultra-fast battery charges in 2 minutes October 17, 2014 Breakthrough for traction batteries? Ultra-fast battery charges in 2 minutes Range anxiety is still one of the most powerful inhibitors for widespread acceptance of electric vehicles. But if it would not take longer to recharge a battery than to fill a gasoline tank, this obstacle could fall. A research team from Singapore's Nanyang Technology University (NTU) could have the ...
