Flash MCUs facilitate programmable code storage, which reduces production costs and expands the scope of real-time adaptive control applications. Not surprisingly, therefore, automotive is the single largest user of flash MCUs.

In the past five years, the move to more sophisticated functions within the car, driven by advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), has stipulated higher levels of connectivity. Significantly higher throughput of data communication, with the goal to reduce latency through the network, has prompted a review of which networking approach should be employed. This has coincided with the growth of in-car infotainment systems, Wi-Fi network capability, and provisioning future ease of support for V2X systems.

About a year ago, I reported on a story out of Mentor Graphics, that the company was releasing a chipset aimed at autonomous driving. The chipset, the DRS360, was based on a Xilinx Zynq FPGA. Fast forward to today, and Mentor Graphics is now a division of Siemens, and that gives them a little more muscle.

?With ESD-protected gates (HBM class 2) and strong avalanche capability these SiC FETs are both more economical and more rugged that GaN devices with comparable ratings. In the most demanding applications, such as EV charging, we are now seeing a clear preference for SiC technology for both new designs and to replace silicon Superjunction MOSFETs in existing systems.?

Modern consumers exchange massive amounts of data between smartphones, tablets, laptops, cameras, in-car infotainment systems, smart TVs, set-top units, and other devices?all running on different platforms and formatted with unique file systems which are frequently incompatible with each other.
