High voltage electric vehicle traction inverter demo
Check out this high voltage traction inverter that's able to drive a 60kW commercially available motor with a 400-12V DC DC converter being controlled by a single C2000 device.
Highlights from embedded world 2020
It was a tough week for Nuremberg Messe, the organisers of embedded world 2020. There’s not a trade exhibition on the planet that can afford to lose 200 exhibitors and over half of its visitors and come up smelling roses.
Right angle termination to 1.25mm pitch connectors
Due to popular demand, Harwin has extended its award-winning Gecko-SL (Screw-Lok) product range to include horizontal male connectors. The successful Gecko range has gained many fans amongst engineers, giving them a more compact, lightweight alternative to conventional Micro-D connectors.
Accelerator pedal controlled throttle body smart actuator
In this demo, an accelerator pedal angle is measured by a dual linear position sensor and the valve of a throttle body is controlled by sensing the angle using a rotary inductive sensor.
Winning at the 5G Edge with Wind River
Wind River software powers the majority of 5G RAN deployments today.
Why go wireless for battery management systems?
In this video, Automotive Applications Manager, Evan Wakefield from Texas Instruments discusses the benefits of using 2.4GHz wireless connectivity technology in an automotive BMS to eliminate wiring harnesses and connectors for greater design flexibility, reduced overall weight and simplified maintenance.
HyperRAM 2.0 memory solutions for automotive applications
Cypress’ HypeRAM 2.0 memory is designed for automotive, industrial, and IoT applications.
Video: isolated gate drivers & noise immunity
In power electronics, isolated gate drivers are used to drive IGBT and Power MOSFETs. With the emergence of SiC and GaN, power electronics are operating at higher frequencies to increase system efficiency and reduce system size and costs. The increase in frequency results in higher switching noise or commonly known as common mode transient, dv/dt.
Compare isolated gate drivers and noise immunity
Isolated gate drivers are used to drive power semiconductors, such as IGBTs and power MOSFETS, in inverters, motor drives, UPS, and EV charger. The gate drivers are used to provide galvanic insulation between the control circuits and the high voltages. Watch the video to learn more about the basics of isolated gate drivers and noise immunity.
