How to Shrink Your ADAS ECUs: Wrap the Power Management Around the Signal Chain
For three automotive ADAS ECU applications, a tailored approach to integration was proposed. Each system was partitioned into a high-voltage front-end IC and a low-voltage back-end PMIC. The entire power management system was reduced to two ICs. MAX20014 was proposed for ADAs radar applications. MAX20414 was proposed for ADAS camera ECUs. MAX20416 was proposed for cluster ECUs. MAX20075 was proposed as front-end buck converter.

Featured parts: MAX20014, MAX20416, MAX20075, MAX20414

Advanced Battery Management for the Rest of Us

 

Advanced Battery Management for the Rest of Us
This design solution discusses the critical importance of battery modeling for an effective fuel gauge system. We reviewed the barriers to obtain battery models, which impedes the proliferation of low-volume battery applications. A disruptive approach, based on the ModelGauge m5 EZ algorithm and the MAXREFDES96 Arduino shield, makes battery system development easy to implement, cost effective, provides good battery performance and is available to all.

Choose a Tailored SIMO PMIC for Your Portable Design

 

Choose a Tailored SIMO PMIC for Your Portable Design
A tailored approach to integration exploits the space and power efficiency of the SIMO architecture by selectively integrating, into a single PMIC, the necessary building blocks to support a given application. The MAX77278 PMIC is ideal for rechargeable applications. The MAX77640 PMIC is ideal for non-rechargeable applications. The MAX17271 PMIC is tailored to small, stripped down applications.

Featured parts: MAX77278, MAX77640, MAX77641, MAX17270, MAX17271
