New eBook from Mouser Electronics and Texas Instruments Offers Guide to Navigate the Future of Urban Air Mobility

10 May 2023 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorised global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components™, has launched a new eBook in collaboration with Texas Instruments, to explore the latest challenges facing the next-generation of air transportation and to discuss the best ways for designers to overcome them.

In Addressing New Challenges in Urban Air Mobility, a range of eight industry experts offer their insights about the rapidly developing trend for electric Urban Air Mobility (UAM) vehicles. The five chapters of the eBook cover a glimpse into the future of UAM vehicles, the latest challenges facing the industry, how to ensure functional safety, the importance of electrical isolation and managing UAM complexity and weight.

The prospect of safe, convenient and efficient urban air transport offers an exciting look into the future. The chance to reduce road traffic and travel by air would save commuters’ time and cut down on urban carbon emissions. Over the next ten years, the UAM market will mature sufficiently to make short distance, point-to-point travel commonplace and affordable in densely populated areas through driverless air taxis. To ensure passenger safety, UAM vehicles will need to follow predefined routes, comply with air traffic control and have fully developed electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) capabilities. However, in order to guarantee the successful long-term future of UAM vehicles, safety and a positive public perception will be of vital importance.

The eBook features quick links to help designers improve functional safety, electrical isolation and battery management systems for UAM vehicles. They include cutting-edge components from Texas Instruments, such as the UCC14240-Q1 Evaluation Module, the TVS3300 ESD Suppressor and the THVD8010 and THVD8000 Transceivers.

Texas Instruments’ range of products, available from Mouser, includes analogue technologies, digital signal processing (DSP) and microcontroller (MCU) semiconductors.
