Noise tolerant op-amps used in electric vehicle core systems

Noise tolerant op-amps used in electric vehicle core systems
With its BA8290xYxx-C series, ROHM is offering automotive-grade op-amps featuring superior noise immunity. The output voltage fluctuations are suppressed in all frequency bands to less than ±1%, compared to ±3.5% to ±10% with conventional products. This allows, for example, sensor signals to be amplified without the need for noise countermeasures, which significantly reduces design load and contributes to greater reliability.

Mid range PIR offers increased detection range for up to 15m

Mid range PIR offers increased detection range for up to 15m
CP Electronics has developed a new range of ceiling-mounted, mid-range passive infrared (PIR) detectors that allow presence detection for ranges up to 15m. Drawing on the success of CP’s acclaimed series of ceiling mounted PIR presence detectors, the company’s EBDMR features a domed lens which allows for greater detection. This design feature is particularly effective when the product is installed within large open plan spaces.
