Technology Solutions for Automotive Applications

ADAS is driving electric and autonomous vehicle innovation, and LIDAR is critical in showing the way. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) hold the promise of the future of driving, which reduce distractions for drivers that can often lead to accidents on the roadways.

From lane departure assistance and collision avoidance to pedestrian detection, the autonomous driving market for embedded vision solutions means big opportunity for not just drivers but the designers who create new ADAS applications. The market potential, in fact, is expected to balloon to $42.4B by 2021, according to the Embedded Vision Alliance.

ON Semiconductor has all the core technologies for the massive opportunities in vehicle electrification as well. Product offerings include IGBTs, high voltage gate drivers, super junction rectifiers, high voltage MOSFETs, high voltage DC-DC, as well as wide band gap (WBG) developments in silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) for next generation solutions. Beyond silicon development, investments in advanced packaging include high power modules, single/dual sided cooled and dual sided direct cooled packages.

To make sure your automotive designs are as safe as they are exciting, work with Avnet and ON Semiconductor.

In today’s automotive landscape, there are higher capabilities than ever across computational, sensing, and actuating, all of which ensure that system designs can produce autonomously controlled vehicles whether it’s for actively assisting basic driving functions or even to help prevent accidents.

ON Semiconductor IVN XCVR & ESD Protection

As today’s vehicles are becoming more data intensive with the addition of ADAS (Advanced Driving Assistance Systems) applications amid an already countless number of ECUs (Electronic Control Units), the number of IVN nodes and their data rates continue to significantly increase.

These IVN nodes such as LIN, SENT and the variations of both CAN and Ethernet are driven by single and multi-channel transceivers that fulfil reliability, quality and robustness requirements. To further strengthen the inherent robustness against harsh transients such as ESD and other current surge pulses, these nodes need to be accompanied by standalone ESD Protection devices that are using advanced diode structures.
