embedded world 2017: Diodes Incorporated unveils new automotive-compliant solutions

Nuremberg, Germany. At Embedded World 2017 in Nuremberg, Germany, Diodes Incorporated will introduce several new automotive-compliant products, including unidirectional 1800W transient voltage suppressors (TVS); 40V and 60V dual, co-packaged enhancement mode MOSFETs; and two AEC-Q100 PCIe packet switches.

Diodes’ new AEC-Q101 TVS design is capable of handling repetitive reverse avalanche pulses up to a peak pulse power dissipation of 1800W. The device fits into a PowerDI5 package that is half the height of the industry standard SMC package and has a 40 percent smaller PCB footprint. Aimed at similar automotive end-applications, the AEC-Q101 Rev D 40V and 60V dual, co-packaged enhancement mode MOSFETs aim to minimize power losses. For example, when used to build a DC-DC converter using with a PWM control IC, the 60V device can achieve 95 percent efficiency while delivering a 5V output at a load current of 2A. Meanwhile, the two new packet switches of the Diodes PI7C9X2G PCI Express 2.0 family are to be qualified to AEC-Q100 grade 3 and provide 3‑port/4‑lane and 4‑port/4‑lane configurations, an integrated clock buffer, and advanced power management, and support hot-plug operation.
