A highly integrated, 8-bit RGB laser driver, Maxim Integrated Products’ MAX3601 is suitable for pico laser projectors in automobiles. The device offers a smaller size, brighter light, and lower cost in comparison to traditional technology as well as enables sharper head-up displays (HUDs), the company claims. Available in 3 x 3.5 mm (0.11 x 0.13 in), 42-bump wafer-level packaging (WLP) and 5 x 5 mm (0.19 x 0.19 in), 40-pin thin quad flat no-lead (TQFN) packages, this integrated circuit drives three RGB lasers to provide a brighter light without compromising the low power. The high intensity of the lasers project brighter, more vivid images onto the HUD to easily alert the driver while enhancing safety.

Development of advanced automotive technologies is increasingly being driven by suppliers, rather than OEMs. And megadeals worth at least $500 million that are behind a growing number of next-gen technologies may reach the highest level since before the Great Recession. That’s the view from Las Vegas, as the 2017 CES (formerly the Consumer Electronics Show) opens to over 160,000 attendees.
