WS159 Industry¹s First 1000V SiC MOSFET PR.jpg

The 1000-V silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFET from Wolfspeed (Durham, NC) enables a reduction in overall system cost, while improving system efficiency and decreasing system size. The company claims the new MOSFET, specially optimized for EV fast-charging and industrial power supplies, enables a 30% reduction in component count while achieving more than 3x increase in power density and a 33% increase in output power. The increase in output power in a reduced footprint is realized by the ultra-low output capacitance―as low as 60 pF―which significantly lowers switching losses, according to Wolfspeed. The 65 mΩ MOSFET is available in a through-hole, 4L-TO247 package. For more information, visit http://www.wolfspeed.com/

Get ready for the “pod” car: Ford announced today that it intends to mass-produce a driverless, fully autonomous vehicle for commercial ride-sharing or ride-hailing service in 2021. The vehicle apparently will be the embodiment of today’s notion of the driverless-vehicle extreme: it will have no steering wheel, brake or accelerator pedals, said president and CEO Mark Fields during the announcement at the company’s Palo Alto, CA, research campus.
Model ASUH miniature hybrid high-integrity pressure transducer from KA Sensors is designed for use in rugged environments from -65 to +300ºF (-54 to +149ºC) and vibration levels of more than 20 g.
Time of flight (ToF) cameras are ready to let drivers control some of the many options of today’s infotainment systems with a mere wave of their hand. ToF-based systems can also monitor drivers to see if they’re drowsy or not watching roadways.
While OEMs wait for NHTSA's V2X mandate they are discussing whether broad usage can be achieved without regulations.
