How to Miniaturize Your Automotive Remote Camera

 

How to Miniaturize Your Automotive Remote Camera
Remote camera modules, which include on-board power management systems, must be small, efficient, and cost-effective. Typical power management solutions are space and power inefficient since they utilize multiple ICs and operate with suboptimal efficiency. The MAX20019 dual-buck converter, optimized for cascaded operation, enables remote camera power management solutions that occupy a fraction of the typical PCB space while preserving high levels of efficiency.
