Noise tolerant op-amps used in electric vehicle core systems

Noise tolerant op-amps used in electric vehicle core systems
With its BA8290xYxx-C series, ROHM is offering automotive-grade op-amps featuring superior noise immunity. The output voltage fluctuations are suppressed in all frequency bands to less than ±1%, compared to ±3.5% to ±10% with conventional products. This allows, for example, sensor signals to be amplified without the need for noise countermeasures, which significantly reduces design load and contributes to greater reliability.

Let's all stay safe with Jost

Let's all stay safe with Jost
Human error can be taken out of trailer coupling through three-sensor fifth wheels, which allows the operator to be confident that the vehicle is safe to drive. The technology was pioneered by JOST UK 14 years ago, who here looks at how it has developed over the years and become popular with increasing numbers of fleets both in the UK and around the world.

Seeing the light

Seeing the light
Steve Rogerson discusses whether LIDAR can continue its journey to become a sensor technology of choice for autonomous vehicles. LIDAR is not new. The light equivalent to RADAR uses pulsed laser beams and measures their reflections to determine the distance of objects, and it has been around since the 1960s. It was originally used for gathering information about clouds and shot to fame in 1971 when the Apollo 15 mission used it to map the surface of the moon.

Digital image sensor suitable for security applications

Digital image sensor suitable for security applications
A new 1/2.7" 2.3MP CMOS digital image sensor with an active-pixel array of 1,936H x 1,188V has been introduced by ON Semiconductor. According to the company, the AR0239 produces clear and sharp digital images in challenging bright and low light conditions. This, along with its ability to capture continuous video and single frames, makes it a suitable choice for many applications including security and surveillance systems, body cameras and vehicle DVRs (dash cameras).

Stacked CMOS sensor suitable for automotive cameras

Stacked CMOS sensor suitable for automotive cameras
Sony has announced the release of the IMX324, a new 1/1.7-type stacked CMOS image sensor equipped with what it claims to be the industry's highest resolution 7.42 effective megapixel RCCC filter for forward-sensing cameras in advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). Sony will begin shipping samples in November 2017. This image sensor is capable of approximately three times the horizontal resolution of conventional products, which enables high-definition image capture of distant road signs approximately 160m ahead of the camera.
