How to Power the Automotive TFT-LCD Displays of the (Not so Distant) Future
The article reviews the shortcomings of a power management solution with low integration and introduced the MAX20069, a single-chip PMIC solution that tightly integrates the various voltage rails and serial communication. This new solution easily performs the required diagnostics to meet stringent ASIL-B safety ratings while reducing the PCB space needed for tight automotive applications.
How to Power Your QSFP-DD Optical Transceiver
Thanks to its high efficiency and small PCB size, the single-to-quad-phase, single-to-quad-output high-curren MAX77812 buck regulator is an ideal choice for powering high data rate optical transceivers. This converter’s flexible architecture allows user-selectable phase configurations, making it easy to adapt to specification changes, thereby speeding up design, qualification, and time to market.
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.
Improve Matrix Lighting with the Next Generation of LED Controllers and Switches
How to pack more functionality in a smaller PCB space while adding flexibility to the next generation of LED controllers for automotive matrix lighting? The MAX20096 synchronous, n-channel, buck LED controller integrates two out-of-phase channels in a single IC reducing the BOM and PCB space occupancy. It also enables higher flexibility and reuse via its SPI interface. The simpler MAX20097 addresses applications that do not require SPI communication. With MAX20092 12 switches can be independently programmed to bypass the LEDs across each of the switches in the string for fine lighting control.
