The SC5012Q 4-channel, high-brightness LED driver for infotainment and navigation display backlighting and the SC220Q 20-MHz buck regulator with X-EMITM inductor technology expand Semtech’s electronics product offerings. Both feature performance and dependability: the SC5012Q drives up to 68 bright 150-mA LEDs from 4.75 to 45 V and offers advanced analog/digital dimming up to 10,000:1 ratio to extend brightness options for varied driving conditions. The SC220Q provides efficient dc-dc buck conversion from 2.7 to 5 V while allowing designers to draw on a standard printed circuit board to minimize board height and reduce noise. Benefits enable embedded power supplies in low-profile applications including rearview mirrors and backup cameras. Other suitable functions include audio/video/navigation, seatback infotainment, and LCD mirror displays.

An ultralight door architecture nets a 42.5% weight savings compared to a current production door, and that's enough to put this lightweight concept, developed via collaboration, in an enviable position.
If there’s any doubt that connectivity is the next wave for advanced features and functions, it should dissipate after CES 2017. A multitude of advances in over the air updates and security will be shown in Las Vegas in January, setting the stage for much of the auto industry’s technology rollouts throughout the year.
Human-machine interfaces are changing rapidly and consolidating as radio head units handle more functions and connect to diverse systems inside and outside the vehicle.
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.
