New automotive TrEOS ESD protection from Nexperia combines high signal integrity, low clamping voltage and high surge robustness

Industry-benchmark performance devices now AEC-Q101 qualified - protecting infotainment, multimedia and ADAS systems.

Nijmegen, September 15, 2020: Nexperia, the expert in essential semiconductors, has introduced four new TrEOS ESD protection devices that are AEC-Q101- qualified for automotive use and high temperature capable up to 175°C. In common with all TrEOS components, the new parts combine extremely low capacitance ensuring high signal integrity, extremely low clamping and high robustness for modern automotive interfaces. Specific automotive applications include infotainment, multimedia and ADAS systems featuring USB 3.2, HDMI, LVDS, SerDes and SD-card interfaces.

Nexperia’s TrEOS ESD protection technology uses active silicon-controlled rectification to overcome the traditional protection trade-off challenge. Capacitance is kept down to 0.5 pF, clamping voltage is just 3 V and devices can withstand surge and ESD pulses up to 10 A 8/20 µs. This industry-leading performance in all areas is delivered in the extensively-proven SOT23 package.

Lukas Droemer, Nexperia product manager commented: “Our TrEOS technology has set the industry benchmark for mobile and computing ESD protection since its launch in 2015. Now, as there is a demand for more and more connectivity in vehicles, Nexperia is continuing to qualify its TrEOS ESD protection portfolio for the automotive sector. With these new parts, automotive design engineers can empower their new systems with the efficiency of TrEOS ESD protection while improving system-level robustness.”

The first four PESD2USBx-T series AEC-Q101-qualified TrEOS ESD protection devices are in mass production now. More information including product specs and datasheets is available at www.nexperia.com/automotive-infotainment-serdes

Intelligent fall detection using TI mmWave radar sensors

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Actively sense when a fall has occurred and take action such as sending out an alert in response. Our 60GHz antenna-on-package radar sensor (IWR6843AOP) is ideal for fall detection applications since it’s able to detect falls in large, indoor environments, can distinguish between a person sitting and falling, and utilizes a point cloud vs a person’s identifiable features, which allows the sensor to be used in areas where privacy is vital such as bathrooms and bedrooms.

The Wireless Member of the DARWIN Family

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Maxim Integrated

MCUs continue to evolve based on increasing demands from designers. We expect our microcontrollers to do more than ever - better security, more performance, lower power consumption - and we want it all for less money, of course. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Kris Ardis from Maxim Integrated about the new DARWIN line of low-power MCUs.
