First RGB LED driver according to LIN standard with BSM auto addressing worldwide

First RGB LED driver according to LIN standard with BSM auto addressing worldwide
With the IC E521.30, ELMOS introduces an RGB LED system basic chip. The component features a fully integrated BSM (bus shunt method) auto addressing LIN transceiver. BSM represents a method for addressing participants in an LIN bus system that is robust and has been proven millions of times. The BSM auto addressing method has been established among the German OEMs e.g. in the field of HVAC flap motors and has been used for almost ten years across the platforms, both robust and reliable. All development and diagnostic tools required for this method are in field use already. ELMOS has been a well-established provider of a fully integrated solution based on this method for several years.

Contactless high-precision current sensing

With the E524.50, ELMOS presents a sensor system for precise current measurement. The system features a compact size, galvanic isolation from the primary current, high dynamics, and it integrates an overcurrent alarm output configurable by the customer. Assembly tolerances can be compensated at application level by calibrating zero point and sensitivity, reaching high system precision. The sensor system includes the sensor cell, signal processing, and two permanent magnets for generating a magnetic field in support of the sensor element.

ELMOS: motor driver with LIN/PWM interface and controller supply

ELMOS: motor driver with LIN/PWM interface and controller supply
With the E523.01, ELMOS presents an EC motor driver with all the functions required for the configuration of a complete, low-cost system. Apart from the high-performance bridge driver, for communication purposes the semiconductor features a LIN2.1 compatible interface as well as a PWM interface with data pre-processing. For an external microprocessor, optional 3.3 or 5.0V voltage supply (70mA), reset, and a configurable window watchdog are provided. The E523.01 is suited for use in automotive as well as industrial applications; target applications range from radiator and blower fans and gas, hydraulic, oil and water pumps to wiper applications as well as industrial motors (fans, pumps) up to a voltage of 28V.

RESCAR 2.0 Enhances the Robustness of Electronic Automotive Components

Whether in the powertrain, in central control units or in body and convenience electronics – there is a constant increase in the proportion of electronic components used in the car. This trend is accompanied by growing complexity of the systems installed, meaning that designers are forever faced with new challenges in the fine tuning. Six partners from all levels of the development chain have now joined forces in a quest to come up with overarching solutions. The members of the RESCAR 2.0 research project (RESCAR being the German acronym for the robust design of new electronic components for applications in the field of electromobility) seek to enhance the reliability and robustness of electronic automotive components. The project is receiving support from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) to the tune of approximately Euro 6.5 million as part of the funding program known as “STROM” (German acronym signifying key technologies for electromobility). Together with the partners, the joint research investment volume is planned at about Euro 13.3 million over the coming three years.

System for auto start-stop function in vehicles

System for auto start-stop function in vehicles
ELMOS introduces a set of chips for the implementation of an automatic start-stop function in vehicles. With ELMOS chips E981.01 and E910.28, the voltage supply of the automotive on-board system can be maintained when car and engine stop in front of a red light or while passengers are getting in or out. This not only saves fuel but also improves the CO2 balance of the vehicles.
