Bourns has expanded its SinglFuse overcurrent protection product line, adding 33 models over the last 18 months. Designed to provide reliable overcurrent protection in sensitive circuitry, the SinglFuse portfolio supports a range of current and voltage requirements with ratings up to 100 A and 600 V AC. These features meet a spectrum of protection requirements in applications such as handheld consumer devices, telecom infrastructure and industrial automation equipment.

Micron has launched its 1300 SATA SSD, a 96-layer triple-level cell (TLC) 3D NAND-based SSDs, available in capacities up to 1TB (in M.2) and 2TB (in 2.5-inch). The 1300 SSD improves storage performance for mobile, desktop and workstation PCs with 2.7x higher read throughput over HDDs. It also provides sequential reads/writes up to 530MB/520MB per second and random reads/writes up to 90,000/87,000 input/output operations per second.

RS Components has announced thick-film chip resistors from KOA that are designed for high-precision use cases such as automation in industrial application or battery designs in the automotive sector.

The RS73 series of metal-glaze thick-film resistors offer tolerances of ±0.1percent and a TCR of 25 ppm/°C. The series has also demonstrated long-term stability characteristics in reliability tests with resistance changing only by ±0.2 percent, typically, or up to ±0.4 percent with long-term exposure to higher temperatures in harsh environments.

STMicroelectronics has developed its L5965 seven-output automotive power-management IC (PMIC), which delivers more compact and reliable electronic control units for automotive-vision systems and other in-vehicle applications, leveraging direct operation from battery voltage with register-programmable output voltages, sequencing and integrated functional-safety mechanisms.

With seven regulated outputs, a single L5965 can power an entire camera or radar-based driver-assistance system including the sensors, memory ICs, processor and CAN interface circuitry.One-time programmable (OTP) cells for setting the output voltages and sequencing allow users to configure the PMIC for a variety of ADAS and other in-car systems.

Synopsys and Elektrobit have joined forces to accelerate automotive electronic systems development using virtual environments. The two companies are collaborating to bring together Synopsys Virtualizer Development Kits (VDKs), EB operating systems, development and test tools to enable pre-silicon and pre-Electronic Control Unit (ECU) hardware availability and software development. The combined architecture accelerates system testing cycles and lets automotive tier 1 and OEM companies transition from physical to virtual system testing.
