    Blog Post: Selecting a bidirectional converter control scheme
    Published. March 20, 2017

    The 48V-12V dual-battery power system is becoming popular for mild hybrid electric vehicles . The vehicle’s dynamic operating conditions may require the transfer of electric power as high as 10kW back and forth between the two battery rails. Because of all sorts of operation scenarios in a moving vehicle, controlling the power flow needs in one direction or the other in real time can be a rather intricate task that demands the intelligence of a digital control scheme. So when leading automakers...

    Memory Trends for Automotive Markets
    Published. March 8, 2017

    Remember automobiles from a few years ago? They were pretty simple machines with lots of small microprocessors distributed across the whole vehicle and doing fairly simple tasks. Semiconductors have been in automobiles for several years, of course, with simple 8- and 16-bit microcontrollers performing functions like Anti-lock Braking (ABS). But today’s automobiles are a different beast. They incorporate several compute-heavy applications like Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) systems,...

    One of the effects of adopting a High Level Synthesis design methodology is that the barrier between "Systems designers" and "Hardware designers" is substantially reduced if not totally eliminated. Suddenly, both "Systems designers" and "Hardware designers" are using not only the same input language to specify their models (C++ / System C) but they are also exposed to the same terminology. For this reason, "Hardware designers" are suddenly exposed...
