Automotive high voltage leakage measurements reference design

Automotive high voltage leakage measurements reference design
The function of this reference design is to monitor the isolation resistance of a high voltage bus to the chassis ground. Monitoring the isolation strength of coupling devices and components from high voltage to the chassis ground is a necessary feature in HEV’s and EV’s as battery management systems, traction inverters, DC/DC converters, onboard chargers, and other subsystems operate at high voltage (greater than 60V).

OpenCV on VxWorks enables intelligence at the edge

OpenCV on VxWorks enables intelligence at the edge
When a wind turbine collects sensor data about its surrounding environment, or an off-shore oil rig logs its readings into its records, the data can be analysed for decision-making factors: Are the sudden changes in engine noise an indication of wear?  Are there any flying objects headed towards danger zones? Are the engine settings optimal for the current weather pattern? Guest blog written by Ka Kay Achacoso, Wind River.

MCU development kit leads to faster prototypes

MCU development kit leads to faster prototypes
Announced earlier this year the Clicker 2 development kit for Cypress Semiconductor’s PSoC 6 microcontrollers (MCUs) is now on sale at distributor RS Components (RS). The kit is the result of a collaborative development by RS, Cypress Semiconductor and MikroElektronika. It bridges the gap between expensive, power hungry application processors and low performance MCUs.

Thermal protection reference design of IGBT modules

Thermal protection reference design of IGBT modules
The TIDA-00794 reference design is a temp sensing solution for IGBT thermal protection in HEV/EV traction inverter system. It monitors the IGBT temperature via the NTC thermistor integrated inside the IGBT module. It provides thermal shut down to the IGBT gate drivers once the NTC thermistor temperature rises above the programmed threshold.
