John Day Infineon Technologies notes that higher performance power electronics components contribute to the primary automotive industry goals of better fuel efficiency and lower emissions. The firm suggests that power MOSFETs with current capability above 200A and R DS(on) below 1mΩ are needed to reduce conduction losses and improve overall efficiency, but it says that MOSFETs to fulfill these needs have not … Read More

John Day Freescale, Infineon, and STMicroelectronics made major chip announcements this week all focused on improving fuel economy and reducing emissions. Freescale said its multicore Qorivva 32-bit MPC5676R MCU, built on Power Architecture® technology, provides four times the performance, double the memory space and more functionality than the previous-generation, single-core MPC5566 MCU. With two parallel … Read More

John Day I want things to work the way they are supposed to – especially if it’s something important, like a car. I can imagine automotive electronics engineers must feel the same way about the chips they specify. “I remember one day that a customer asked me, ‘What are you going to do to ship me zero defects,’” recalls James Williams, automotive development quality manager at Texas Instruments. “I nearly … Read More
