STMicroelectronics First in Production with Enhanced Audio for Start/Stop and Hybrid Cars

STMicroelectronics First in Production with Enhanced Audio for Start/Stop and Hybrid Cars
As car makers introduce features such as engine start/stop to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions, STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a world leader in automotive ICs, is pioneering a new generation of chips that allow in-car entertainment equipment to operate without interruption as the engine is turned off and restarted. The first of these is the TDA7850LV, a 4x50W audio power amplifier that is the very first start/stop-compatible IC of its kind in production.

New MOST Generation MOST150 to Be Integrated in Audi A3 Vehicles First

New MOST Generation MOST150 to Be Integrated in Audi A3 Vehicles First
The MOST Cooperation is proud to announce that its core partner members Audi and Daimler will be the first carmakers to integrate MOST150 into series production vehicles. Since the first implementation of MOST25 in an Audi car in 2002, MOST has become the established standard for the networking of premium infotainment systems at Audi, stated Jens Koetz, Director of the division of electrical/electronic design, networking, energy systems, and system safety at AUDI AG. Now the new generation MOST150 offers unique advantages as a speed upgrade through consistent further development of the existing transmission technology. Infotainment applications place very different demands on the network infrastructure, and MOST150 provides all the communication mechanisms over one interface, an all-in-one approach.

Freescale accelerates automotive safety with advanced airbag sensors

The development of safer vehicles is a key technology driver for the automotive industry, with airbag safety systems leading the charge. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that frontal air bags alone saved more than 25,780 lives between 1987 and 2008. As automotive suppliers continue to incorporate critical safety features in their designs, they must continue improving performance, while at the same time reducing cost to gain a competitive edge.
