New Interactive Documentation Tool Makes ECU Calibration Easier

July 28, 2015  by  

ETAS_EHANDBOOK_webAs engineers develop ECU functions, thousands of pages of PDF documentation are generated. These pages are often referred back to during calibration, when the functions are fine-tuned. Sifting through huge PDF files is a tedious, time-consuming process.

A solution to this common problem is ETAS’ EHANDBOOK –an interactive tool that offers intelligent search functionality in place of tiresome manual searches and that automatically generates interactive graphics and models from ASCET, Simulink®, or C-code.

EHANDBOOK helps calibration engineers manage information and work efficiently, offering them a deep understanding of the ECU functions their colleagues in function development have produced. This interaction improves quality in the development process and shares knowledge within the organization, but above all it saves valuable time.

42V Quad Synchronous Step-Down DC/DC Converter Delivers 93% Efficiency & Operates from 3V to 42V Inputs

July 27, 2015  by  

LT8602Linear Technology Corporation announces the LT8602, a 42V input capable, high efficiency quad output synchronous monolithic step-down switching regulator. Its quad channel design combines two high voltage 2.5A and 1.5A channels with two lower voltage 1.8A channels to provide four independent outputs, delivering voltages as low as 0.8V. Its synchronous rectification topology delivers up to 93% efficiency while Burst Mode® operation keeps quiescent current under 30µA (all channels) in no-load standby conditions, making it ideal for always-on systems. For noise-sensitive applications, the LT8602 utilizes its pulse-skipping mode to minimize switching noise and meet the CISPR25, Class 5 EMI requirements. Switching frequency can be programmed from 250kHz to 2.2MHz and is synchronizable throughout this range.
