CERA: A Global Certification to Ensure Future Sustainability in the Use of Raw Materials
Due to be launched next year, a group of European bodies and companies have joined forces to create the first global certification scheme ensuring consistent standards of environmental, social, and economic impact.
How Standardising Computing Platforms Could Accelerate the Delivery of Autonomous Vehicles at Scale
Self-driving cars must control themselves, perceive their environment and make decisions. Many of the prototypes are in fact able to achieve such functionalities, but still, autonomous vehicles for consumers are still a long way from mass production. To deliver what is needed, standardised, autonomous computing solutions, alongside industry collaboration, is vital.
Diodes Incorporated’s Automotive-Compliant MOSFETs in a Minuscule DFN2020 Package
Diodes Incorporated’s MOSFETs (metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors) offer industry-leading performance and power management in a minuscule DFN2020 package that occupies up to just 10% of the board space of competing devices.
u-blox’s Product Manager, Alex Ngi, Discusses u-blox’s Dead Reckoning, Vehicle-to-Everything Positioning Solutions
To demonstrate u-blox and Siemens’ high-accuracy, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) positioning solutions, the tech giants attended the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) European Congress 2019, where they showcased u-blox’s ZED-F9K sensor module and what it brings to intelligent cars and fleets. u-blox’s Alex Ngi explains the technology involved.
STMicroelectronics to Supply Silicon-Carbide Power Electronics to Renault for High Speed Battery Charging in EVs
STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader, has announced it will supply these electronics to Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi to enable high-speed charging in the next generation of electric vehicles.
Power Integrations LQ10N200CQ and LQ20N200CQ Audio Amplifiers
Power Integrations, a leading company in high-voltage integrated circuits for energy-efficient power conversion, has announced that its new 200V Qspeed diodes are now available. The LQ10N200CQ and LQ20N200CQ diodes have the AEC-Q101 automotive qualification and are optimal for in-vehicle audio systems due to their low EMI and reduced noise output.
UK Organizations Receive Funding for Improving Energy Efficiency
Faraday, the independent institute, is allocating £55 million to projects in 4 focus areas, each set on improving EV battery technology while slashing harmful emissions. Resulting research also has the potential to positively impact other industries.
The University of Warwick Trials Cybersecurity Research Projects for Connected Autonomous Vehicles
With autonomous vehicles expected to become more and more widespread as manufacturers work hard to bring their own designs to market, the security of the connected systems that power them are a major concern for researchers.
