Maxim Announces Industry's First Remote Tuner Solution with Single Hardware Platform Supporting Worldwide Radio Standards for Automotive Applications

MAX2175 RF to Bits® tuner-based solution reduces cables and simplifies vehicle head unit design

Using the remote tuner solution from Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM), designers can significantly simplify the head unit design of a vehicle and reduce cables. The MAX2175 RF to Bits tuner within the solution eliminates the need to rework the vehicle's hardware to support worldwide radio standards, allowing updates by simply changing the vehicle's software.

Traditional radio architecture brings many challenges to vehicle designers. The vehicle's complex head unit must accommodate multiple tuners, manage heat dissipation, and receive multiple cables from the antennas. In addition, the received analog signals pick up noise as they travel from the antenna to the head unit of the vehicle. Finally, baseband processing uses single purpose hardware, requiring separate designs to support multiple worldwide radio standards.

LUXEON UV U1 Doubles Performance Of Current Smallest UV Emitter In The Industry

The LUXEON UV U1 delivers twice the irradiance power of the previous generation UV LED at 380-390 nm in a miniature 2.2 mm2 SMD package with a 5x greater power density.

Leveraging its leading expertise in chip scale packaging, Lumileds today introduced the LUXEON UV U1 LED for use in UV curing, counterfeit detection, analytical instrumentation, inspections and other UVA and Violet (380-420 nm) applications. This third generation of UV LEDs maintains the same micro package size as LUXEON Z UV, but enables a higher power density. LUXEON UV U1 also features a robust design that eliminates materials like silicone over mold, which tends to yellow and crack upon UV exposure, and the elimination of wire bonds that can lead to catastrophic connection failures. “UV LED customers are reliability driven. They tend to run their equipment 24/7 and demand a proven product that will perform as expected for over 20,000 hours. The LUXEON UV U1 is that reliable product,” said Yan Chai, Product Line Director of Lumileds UV LEDs.

40A µModule Regulator with 3D Stacked-Inductor Packaging Enhances Thermal Conduction for Cooler Operation

Linear Technology Corporation introduces the LTM4636, a 40A step-down µModule® switching regulator with 3D construction for quicker heat dissipation and cooler operation in a small package. By stacking its inductor on top of a 16mm x 16mm BGA package, the LTM4636 benefits from the exposed inductor as a heat sink, permitting direct contact with airflow from any direction to cool the device. The LTM4636 delivers 40W (12VIN, 1VOUT, 40A, 200LFM) with only 40°C rise over ambient temperature. Full-power 40W is delivered up to 83°C ambient and half-power 20W is supported at 110°C ambient.

Infineon speeds up in-vehicle communication and makes it secure and reliable with CAN FD transceivers

Around 60 electronic control units communicate with each other in vehicles today via the Controller Area Network (CAN). The need for in-vehicle communication is growing as the amount of networking increases and more comfort and automation are implemented. The new protocol variant CAN FD (CAN Flexible Data-rate) allows a higher data bandwidth and transmission speed. This saves time in programming, in tests and diagnostic routines as well as for software updates over the air (SOTA).

With its TLE925x CAN FD transceivers, Infineon Technologies makes data exchange up to 30 times faster than today. The TLE925x reaches transmission speeds of up to 5 Mbit/s. Compared to the classical CAN transceivers with a maximum of 8 byte, the CAN FD transceivers such as TLE925x can send a payload of up to 64 byte per message. This opens up the possibility to check the transmitted data for consistency in the transmitting control unit and to sign it with a 21-bit checksum instead of the 17-bit possible so far. Longer checksums ensure reliable communication between the control units. This makes it possible to better secure data transmission in the vehicle without the application software becoming more complex in the electronic control unit.
