Infineon introduces high precision coreless current sensor XENSIV™ TLE4972 for automotive applications

Munich, Germany – 27 October, 2021 – Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) launches its first automotive current sensor: the new XENSIV™ TLE4972. The coreless current sensor uses Infineon’s well-proven Hall technology for precise and stable current measurements. With its compact design and diagnosis modes, the TLE4972 is ideal for xEV applications like traction inverters used in hybrid and battery-driven vehicles, as well as for battery main switches.

As a result of proprietary temperature and stress compensation, TLE4972 offers state-of-the-art sensing without the negative effects caused by magnetic cores. Due to its differential sensing structure, neither core nor shield are required to protect the sensor against stray fields. The integrated EEPROM allows to customize the sensor for different applications and supports measurement ranges up to 2 kA.

To protect the system, the sensor has two separate output pins for overcurrent detection with a typical response time of less than 1 µs. Customers can program the sensitivity as well as the overcurrent limits and adapt the sensor to the system requirements. In addition, the drift of sensitivity plus offset over temperature is below 1.6 percent.

The sensor causes very low-power losses due to the magnetic sensing principle. Therefore, it can be used as a versatile and redundant solution in 400 V or 800 V battery main switches. The small PG-VSON-6 package enables a compact design, making the device ideal for traction inverters. Moreover, a second product variant in a PG-TDSO-16 is offered. Both devices have been developed according to ISO 26262 as Safety Element out of Context for safety requirements up to ASIL B.

Availability

Samples of the XENSIV TLE4972-AE35D5 (PG-TDSO-16) are available, the TLE4972-AE35S5 (PG-VSON-6) will be available beginning 2022. Mass production is planned to start beginning 2022. More information is available at www.infineon.com/current-sensors.

See 400 GbE Running on a Speedster®7t FPGA from Achronix

Sponsored by Achronix

400GbE is required for next-generation, high-performance networking applications. In this video, Achronix demonstrates 400GbE connectivity on a Speedster7t FPGA integrated into a VectorPath™ PCIe accelerator card. The demonstration shows 400GbE traffic generated within the FPGA and transmitted across the FPGA’s 2D network on chip or NoC to the Ethernet subsystem. The 400GbE traffic is then looped back and checked within the FPGA fabric to compare to the original data stream.

High Voltage Charging Solution for Energy Storage & Backup Systems

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Maxim Integrated (now part of Analog Devices)

Today there is growing demand for energy storage with more power, longer range, and longer run time. But the question remains: how can we increase our energy storage given the energy storage mediums on the market today? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Anthony Huyhn from Analog Devices about the benefits of high voltage energy storage, why stacked battery cells are crucial to these kinds of systems, how high voltage energy storage systems can reduce conduction loss exponentially and what kind of high voltage charging solutions from Analog Devices are on the market today.
