Ethernet-based in-vehicle networking shows it credentials in relation to automotive infotainment


Figures produced by Yano Research indicate that the number of automotive communication nodes deployed annually will have gone through an almost tenfold rise from the start to the end of this decade. The advent of the ‘connected car’, which has been widely publicised, means that greater communication capabilities now need to be incorporated into automobile …

Doubling key figures-of-merit drives up efficiency in MOSFET-based designs


The low voltage power Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor (MOSFET) is the most widely used semiconductor switch.  When compared with other types of switch including Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBT) or thyristors the MOSFET will usually demonstrate better commutation speeds and also better efficiency at low voltages. When selecting a MOSFET for an application …
