Small-footprint sunroof motor module reference design

Small-footprint sunroof motor module reference design
The TIDA-01389 is a small-footprint motor control module intended for sunroof and window lift applications. This TI Design uses the DRV8703-Q1 gate driver with an integrated current-shunt amplifier alongside two dual-package automotive-qualified MOSFETs, to create a very small power stage layout compared to typical relay solutions. This design also includes two of TI’s DRV5013-Q1 latching hall sensors, which are used to encode the motor position.

Smarter approach to vehicle design

Smarter approach to vehicle design
The demand for innovation is universal across industries, as new products are required to meet higher performance standards without slowing the overall time to market. This reality is perhaps most apparent in the automotive industry, where a wide range of technologies must come together seamlessly if a new product is to be successful.

Carbon composite to increase material use in sports cars

Carbon composite to increase material use in sports cars
In a pioneering move, the designers at the Elemental Motor Company have utilised a manufacturing technique to extend the use of carbon composites in its RP1 track-focussed road car. Tailored Fibre Placement creates a cost effective, strong and tough solution where carbon fibre would previously have been ruled out on a cost and fragility basis. Recent developments by ZSK which improve the TFP production process now mean carbon composites can be used in many new applications.

Shunt-based ±500A precision current sensing ref. design

Shunt-based ±500A precision current sensing ref. design
This shunt-based current sensor reference design provides an accuracy of < 0.2% FSR over a temperature range of -40°C to +125°C. Precision current sensing is essential in a number of automotive applications, including battery management systems, motor currents, and others. Generally, nonlinearity, temperature drift, shunt tolerances in these locations can cause poor accuracy results.
