Thermal protection reference design for HEV/EV traction inverters

Thermal protection reference design for HEV/EV traction inverters
The TIDA-00794 reference design from Texas Instruments is a temp sensing solution for IGBT thermal protection in HEV/EV traction inverter system. It monitors the IGBT temperature via the NTC thermistor integrated inside the IGBT module. It provides thermal shut down to the IGBT gate drivers once the NTC thermistor temperature rises above the programmed threshold.

LIN products for automotive interfaces

LIN products for automotive interfaces
A Local Interconnect Network, also known as LIN, can provide a lower cost and simpler implementation than can for non-safety critical systems. That TLIN family of devices include single, dual, and quad channel LIN transceivers.The TLIN devices are compliant to the applicable LIN standards while being designed to meet AEC-Q100qualifications needed for most automotive applications.

Automotive isolated CAN and power front end reference design

Automotive isolated CAN and power front end reference design
This reference design from Texas Instruments demonstrates reinforced isolated CAN communication, which is widely used in automotive environments, in a small footprint. In hybrid and electric vehicles (HEV/EVs), a complete high-voltage network is floating with respect to the chassis ground.

Isolated CAN reference design

Isolated CAN reference design
This design note from Texas Instruments presents the reference design of an isolated CAN node using the isolated CAN transceiver and a transformer driver, SN6505A, to generate the isolated power. The family of isolated CAN transceivers covered here include the ISO1042, with 70V bus fault protection and flexible data rate for industrial and automotive applications, and ISO1050 isolated CAN transceiver.

How to design isolated CAN systems with correct bus protection

How to design isolated CAN systems with correct bus protection
One common reason for transceiver damage is due to insufficient bus protection. External ESD protection is either not designed in at all, or the protection device is chosen in a way that does not pair well with the transceiver. It is imperative for the protection device to be chosen to interface well with the transceiver.

Key considerations for isolated CAN transceivers

Key considerations for isolated CAN transceivers
There are many things to consider when selecting an isolated CAN transceiver for your industrial or automotive design. This video from Texas Instruments highlights four of the key considerations for selecting the right one. The video explains that for communication in industrial and automotive applications, CAN transceivers are used for their prioritisation and arbitration benefits.

How to isolate signal and power in isolated CAN systems

How to isolate signal and power in isolated CAN systems
In this paper from Texas Instruments, Neel Seshan, Product Marketing Engineer, Isolation, Interface Group explains how to Isolate Signal and Power in Isolated CAN Systems; with the increase in the usage of signal isolation in many industrial and automotive applications, the need for isolated power has also increased.

Isolate CAN systems without compromising performance or space

Isolate CAN systems without compromising performance or space
CAN interface has been a very popular serial communication standard in the industry due to its excellent prioritisation and arbitration capabilities. In systems with different voltage domains, isolation is typically used to protect the low voltage side from the high voltage side in case of any faults.
