Interface bridge devices for automotive infotainment applications

Interface bridge devices for automotive infotainment applications
Toshiba Electronics Europe has announced a range of video interface bridge devices intended for modern automotive In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) applications. Increasingly, SoCs from smartphones and tablets have been used in automotive applications as IVI systems became more sophisticated, requiring more functionality and greater performance. However, due to differing connectivity standards on devices such as displays, existing SoCs often lack of necessary interfaces required for automotive networks.

Surge protector offers ultra-low capacitance

Surge protector offers ultra-low capacitance
ProTek Devices has introduced an ultra-low-capacitance surge protection component for circuit protection in applications such as automotive infotainment systems, industrial cameras, Thunderbolt and more. The very low capacitance for the new PTB05-ULC is 0.15pF max (I/O to GND). Other applications include V-by-One HS, HDMI 2.0, and LVDS. The PTB05-ULC is designed to protect high speed data lines – up to eight – from electrostatic discharges (ESD) and electrical over-stress (EOS).
