Selecting External Components for an Automotive Remote Antenna Regulator and Current-Sense Amplifier

Selecting External Components for an Automotive Remote Antenna Regulator and Current-Sense Amplifier
The MAX16946, is a high-voltage regulator with a precision current-sense amplifier (CSA), designed to provide phantom power to remote radio antennas in automotive applications. The device provides short-circuit protection, current-limit protection, and open-load detection. The current levels for current-limit protection and open-load detection are programmable with external resistors. To ensure that antenna detection circuitry meets performance objectives, the design engineer must choose the correct external components for the design.

GPS/GNSS Front-End Amplifier

GPS/GNSS Front-End Amplifier
The MAX2670 GPS/GNSS front-end amplifier IC is designed for automotive and marine GPS/GNSS satellite navigation antenna modules or for any application that needs to compensate for cable losses from the antenna to receiver. Two unconditionally stable low-noise amplifier stages provide the high gain and integrated I/O matching to minimize the need for external matching components and eliminate the need for additional gain stages. The device features the option to place a bandpass ceramic or SAW filter between the two amplifier stages to provide a narrow-band output to further improve the noise performance of the GPS/GNSS receiver. Additionally, a 3.4dB gain step is provided to compensate for cable loss variation between different applications.

High-Voltage Watchdog Timers Enhance Automotive System Safety

As electronic systems take over many of the mechanical functions in a car—ranging from engine timing to steering and braking—there is a growing concern about fault tolerance. There should not be a single point of failure that would prevent a car from at least limping off the road or making it to the nearest service station. Redundant systems, watchdog timers, and other control circuits are used to reroute signals and perform other functions that ensure that a vehicle can safely make it off the road when a failure occurs.

MAX9263-65: HDCP GMSL chipset enables secure transmission of digital content

MAX9263-65: HDCP GMSL chipset enables secure transmission of digital content
Maxim Integrated Products introduces the latest members of its high-speed LVDS serializer/deserializer (SerDes) family: the MAX9263/MAX9265 serializers and MAX9264 deserializer. This gigabit multimedia serial link (GMSL) chipset features high-bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP), and forms a complete, secure, bidirectional digital-video link (HDCP-GMSL*) for transmission of digital video and audio over a single DC-balanced twisted-pair or differential line.

MAX2135: Diversity tuner for automotive TV applications provides two tuners in a 7mm x 7mm package

MAX2135: Diversity tuner for automotive TV applications provides two tuners in a 7mm x 7mm package
Maxim introduced the MAX2135 diversity tuner for ISDB-T and DVB-T automotive applications. This device integrates two high-performance signal paths that operate from a single fractional-N synthesizer. Packaged in a small, 7mm x 7mm TQFN, the MAX2135 provides a compact solution compared to designs that use two separate tuner ICs.

MAX9249: Gigabit multimedia serial link with integrated full-duplex control channel reduces EMI and saves cost

MAX9249: Gigabit multimedia serial link with integrated full-duplex control channel reduces EMI and saves cost
Maxim introduced the latest member of its high-speed LVDS serializer family: the MAX9249 serializer with LVDS system interface. This serializer pairs with the MAX9260 deserializer to form a gigabit multimedia chipset that provides a complete bidirectional digital-video link over a single DC-balanced twisted-pair or differential line. Maxim's proprietary, differential, full-duplex control channel eliminates the need for an external CAN or LIN interface, thus simplifying design while saving space and cost. This approach enables bidirectional communication with the display module, as well as programming of camera settings through a UART/I2C interface on a frame-by-frame basis. The MAX9249/MAX9260 chipset is ideal for automotive infotainment and camera applications such as navigation, sign recognition, collision avoidance, night vision, and lane departure.
