A beginner's guide to CAN, CAN FD and LIN SBCs

A beginner's guide to CAN, CAN FD and LIN SBCs
SBCs are simply integrated circuits that integrate Controller Area Network (CAN) or Local Interconnect Network (LIN) transceivers with an internal/external ‘power element’. This power element could be a low-dropout regulator (LDO), a DC/DC converter or both.

Low-noise AEC-Q101 diodes solve challenges in power amplifiers

Low-noise AEC-Q101 diodes solve challenges in power amplifiers
Power Integrations has announced that its 200V Qspeed diodes, LQ10N200CQ and LQ20N200CQ, are now available with AEC-Q101 automotive qualification. Qspeed silicon diodes use merged-PIN technology to offer a unique balance of soft switching and low reverse recovery charge (Qrr). This results in low EMI and reduced output noise, which is especially important for in-vehicle audio systems.

Miniature automotive MOSFETs bring increased power density

Miniature automotive MOSFETs bring increased power density
Diodes Incorporated announced the introduction of the 40V-rated DMTH4008LFDFWQ and 60V-rated DMTH6016LFDFWQ automotive-compliant MOSFETs packaged in DFN2020. These miniature MOSFETs occupy just ten percent of the PCB area of larger packages, such as SOT223, enabling greater power density in DC/DC converters, LED backlighting, ADAS, and other ‘under-the-hood’ automotive applications.

Lightening the burden of high pressure for hydrogen vehicles

Lightening the burden of high pressure for hydrogen vehicles
Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV), powered by hydrogen, beat battery-powered cars in several dimensions. Fueled up in only a few minutes, they have a longer range and still feature all performance benefits of the electric powertrain. But the technology is still young and has to master some challenges. From a composites’ point of view, the significant amount of fibres needed for the hydrogen storage vessel, is a particular one.
