Allegro MicroSystems, LLC Announces New Three-Wire, True Zero-Speed, Surface Mount Magnetic Speed Sensor IC

Design Allows for Ease of Use for PCB Applications Over Typical SIP Based Packages

In response to market requests of a highly integrated speed sensor with advance algorithm PCB mounted systems, Allegro has released the A1667 in a surface mount SOIC-8 package. This device provides a user-friendly solution for highly compact ring magnet applications utilizing PCB mounting. This sensor is ideal for applications such as automotive transmissions and industrial equipment.

TI introduces the industry's lowest-power, low-jitter retimers for 4K UHD video and camera interface

High-performance devices resolve HDMI® 2.0 and MIPI® signal integrity issues in video, display and camera system designs

Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced three high-performance retimers which enable an extended signal range over long traces, connectors and cables without degradation of signal integrity. These devices expand TI's high-performance retimer portfolio, and support flexible, cost-optimized system design, enabling designers to speed their products to market while maintaining optimal performance. With up to 60 percent lower power consumption than competitive devices and the widest temperature range from -40C to 85C, the new retimers enable robust video and camera signal quality in equipment such as desktop and laptop PCs, mobile devices, high-definition televisions (HDTVs), and automotive infotainment systems. For more information about TI's retimer portfolio, see www.ti.com/hdmi20-pr.​

Advantages of Using Silicon Carbide in Power Electronics

The advantages of using SiC in power electronics is the focus of a large number of semiconductor news studies and reports.  These reports prove just how advantages using SiC can be when designing power electronics.

Although silicon offers numerous benefits and advantages in power MOSFETs, it also displays some limitations that are characteristic to silicon material properties.  Properties like low thermal conductivity, low bandgap energy, and limitations in switching frequencies.  Power semiconductor devices, however, that are made with silicon carbide (SiC), don’t possess those types of material limitations. 

Automotive 150°C class ferrite bead, solder mountable

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. is proud to announce the simultaneous release of four series of ferrite beads in the 0603 (1.6 x 0.8 mm) size that can be solder-mounted and are guaranteed to function at a temperature of 150°C and are designed for automotive powertrain and safety applications.

As automobiles incorporate an ever increasing amount of electrical parts and as more and more electrically powered automobiles are being developed, more noise suppression products are being used in the powertrain and safety circuits that require high levels of reliability. In particular, environments that are in close proximity to engine compartments, noise suppression products that are guaranteed to function at temperatures above the 125°C level required in the past are now in demand. In response, Murata has been supplying ferrite beads that are guaranteed to work at 150°C, but these beads supported mounting by means of conductive adhesives rather than by solder.

The Road to Full Autonomous Driving: Mobileye and STMicroelectronics to Develop EyeQ®5 System-on-Chip, Targeting Sensor Fusion Central Computer for Autonomous Vehicles

5th-generation System-on-Chip, scheduled to sample in H1 2018, builds on long-standing cooperation between Mobileye and ST and market success of EyeQ technology, available now or in the near future on vehicles from
25 car manufacturers


Mobileye (NYSE:MBLY) and STMicroelectronics (NYSE:STM) today announced that the two companies are co-developing the next (5th ) generation of Mobileye’s SoC, the EyeQ® 5, to act as the central computer performing sensor fusion for Fully Autonomous Driving (FAD) vehicles starting in 2020.
