Electric vehicles are taking over the automotive market

Electric vehicles are taking over the automotive market
Without a doubt, the market for electric vehicles is growing rapidly. While we are still in the initial phase there are several signs that the Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) market is emerging from its infancy. Figures from the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) confirm this; whereas in 2010 the worldwide electric vehicle market was more or less zero, by 2015 over half a million electric cars had been sold - and sales are continuing to increase.

Gateway device overcomes LIN bus limitations

Gateway device overcomes LIN bus limitations
Global microelectronics engineering company, Melexis, has announced a new LIN-to-LIN gateway that overcomes the limitation of just 16 devices on a typical LIN bus. Each MLX81120 connects as a LIN slave on the main LIN bus and is controlled directly from the vehicle's Body Control Module (BCM). The new device allows for up to 16 LIN RGB slave modules on a private LIN bus, thereby permitting up to 196 LED lighting devices to be connected to a single BCM via a LIN bus.
