Multiple voltage rails are utilized within electric and hybrid electric vehicles, with a low-voltage rail for traditional electrical loads and higher voltage rails used for direct or assisted propulsion and other high-voltage functions. DC/DC converters are key components for voltage balancing and the bi-directional transfer of energy between the different voltage rails within these vehicles.
Our digital power solutions enable designs that offer higher system efficiency and integration, higher power density, faster control loops and more flexibility in various power topologies. Additionally, these solutions can reduce BOM and system costs, while providing the necessary components for a functionally safe design.
The Automotive Networking Development Board is a low-cost modular development system for our 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit microcontrollers targeting CAN and LIN network related applications.
This Starter Kit features a dsPIC33EV256GM106 Digital Signal Controller (DSC) for automotive and motor control applications. It contains serial data ports for CAN, LIN and SENT, a self-contained USB programming/debug interface, and an expansion footprint for flexibility in application hardware development.
The TimeFlash 2 programmer allows you to program our field programmable oscillators to a custom frequency in seconds, enabling fast prototyping and testing. It can measure frequency accuracy and power consumption of standard oscillators, regardless of vendor, making it a valuable lab tool for engineers.
The MAQ5280 Evaluation Board demonstrates the features of the MAQ5280, a high-performance linear regulator offering a very- low noise output with a very-wide input voltage operating range from 4.5V to 120V DC.
The Explorer 16/32 Development Kit is a flexible, convenient and ready to start development, demonstration and testing platform for 16-bit PIC24 MCUs, dsPIC® DSCs and 32-bit PIC32 MCUs.
