Murata has developed a 3rd generation of MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) 4DoF (four-degrees-of-freedom) and 5DoF (five-degrees-of-freedom) inertial sensors that realize high-performance for safety critical automotive applications.
Electronic assistants are essential for modern vehicles in particular: The number of electronic components and systems is steadily increasing, as the communication between the individual components and systems grows more complex. As a result of the three megatrends of automated driving, energy efficiency and vehicle digitization, the number of assistance systems, comfort packages and electronic systems in the drivetrain and exhaust gas system is climbing steadily, which has also impelled an increase in the number of sensors and control units.
STMicroelectronics’ SRK1000A and SRK1000B secondary-side synchronous-rectification (SR) controllers for flyback converters, featuring high efficiency and low power consumption, introduce a new, more affordable and smaller-footprint option for battery chargers, quick chargers, adapters, and USB power-delivery outlets.
EDAX, Inc., a leader in X-ray microanalysis and electron diffraction instrumentation, has launched the world’s first commercially available direct electron detector designed for Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD).
