DC application varistor design guide

DC application varistor design guide
The AUMOV series varistor is designed for circuit protection in low voltage (12, 24 and 42VDC) automotive systems. This series is available in five disc sizes with radial leads with a choice of epoxy or phenolic coatings. The automotive MOV varistor is AEC-Q200 compliant. It offers robust load dump, jump start and peak surge current ratings, as well as high energy absorption capabilities.

Debug platform is 50% faster than competing devices

A debugging solution which reduces the time to identify bugs in a design by up to 50% compared to traditional signal- or transaction-level debug methods has been released by Cadence Design Systems. In addition to the Indago debug platform, the company has also introduced three debugging apps that plug into the platform and can be used with other verification tools to provide a single integrated and synchronised debug solution for testbench, verification IP (VIP) and hardware/software debug for SoC designs. The Indago debug platform and debugging apps are part of the comprehensive Cadence System Development Suite and are currently available for early adopters.
