Technology enhances scalability for driving the automotive future

Technology enhances scalability for driving the automotive future
Dialog Semiconductor has recently announced its Configurable Mixed-Signal IC (CMIC) for the automotive industry, the SLG46620-A. In today’s advanced automotive market, manufacturers are required to implement the latest safety, comfort and self-driving features which demand an ever-growing number of Integrated Circuits (ICs). Current solutions aimed at supporting these functions are limited by discrete implementations and standard ICs, requiring a large bill of materials to support.

Automotive buck LED drivers streamline lighting

Automotive buck LED drivers streamline lighting
Diodes Incorporated introduced two automotive LED drivers that combine robust performance, simplified design, and flexibility to address internal and external lighting applications, such as fog lamps, position lamps, rear lamps, and door lamps. The AL8860Q and AL8861Q have a wide-operating voltage range from 4.5 to 40V to withstand load-dump events and operate correctly at low-cranking voltages in stop-start applications.

Two-phase synchronous buck DC/DC controller for high current outputs

Two-phase synchronous buck DC/DC controller for high current outputs
The LM5143-Q1 from Texas Instruments is a 65V synchronous buck DC/DC controller for high-current single or dual outputs. The device uses an interleaved, stackable, peak current-mode control architecture for easy loop compensation, fast transient response, excellent load and line regulation, and accurate current sharing with parallelled phases for higher output current.
