Wireless charging for personal electronics is a new convenience feature making its way into the automobile. Coupled with hands-free communication, it allows for convenient charging of the phone while in use within the vehicle. With the growing functionality of smartphones within the vehicle, such as it being a source for entertainment, navigation and a wide variety of apps, a convenient method for charging is a differentiating feature in today’s market.
At the core of a wireless charging embedded control system, our Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) offer advanced features such as multiple Pulse-Width Modulators (PWMs), high-speed Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs) and an integrated Digital Signal Processor (DSP). They can support various industry standards for wireless charging, as well as proprietary standards due to the DSC’s computational abilities. We also provide many of the analog support pieces for communications, power management and output control to enable a complete system 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.
The LIN Serial Analyzer development tool enables the user to monitor and communicate to a LIN bus using a PC. This powerful tool can be used to send messages, monitor the bus traffic, perform errors checks and filter messages.
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.
This board can be used to evaluate the MIC4605, an 85V half-bridge MOSFET driver that features adaptive-dead-time and shoot-through protection.
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.
This development board for the ATA6612C, ATA6613C and ATA6614Q ICs accelerates the programming, prototyping and testing of new LIN designs.
The Three Coil Wireless Power Transmitter is based on the dsPIC33CH128MP506 device and implements a fixed frequency power control topology. The front-end buck-boost control is managed by the dsPIC33CH device. The transmitter includes CAN FD for ease of integration into the automotive environment. The transmitter also enables the implementation of NFC.
The 200W Wireless Power reference design implements a proprietary protocol developed from several years of R&D and granted U.S patents in the field of wireless power. The 200W solution is ideal for applications such as power tools, robotic vacuums, industrial slip rings, small electric vehicles and drones.
