Synopsys, Inc. announced the expansion of its Virtualizer™ Development Kit (VDK) portfolio for Renesas’ RH850 MCU with the new RH850/E1x series reference virtual prototype, which targets powertrain electronic control units (ECUs).
The AT549RBT cored-spring inductor from Coilcraft CPS (Critical Products & Services) features a temperature rating of -55°C to +300°C, making it suitable for extreme-temperature applications such as on-engine automotive.
AeroVironment, Inc. introduced TurboCord™, a compact, UL-listed, dual mode 240-volt/16-amperage and 120-volt portable charging cordset (MSRP $649) for EV charging. TurboCord is also available in a 240-volt only version (MSRP $599).
A new Bosch start-stop system stops the engine when the vehicle is traveling at speed, helping to reduce fuel consumption by 10 percent.
ON Semiconductor introduced two new AEC-Qualified ICs which, thanks to their wide input voltage range and extensive operational temperature range, are highly optimized for automotive powertrain and in-cabin deployment.
The ASM Pneumatics model library, which will become part of the dSPACE Automotive Simulation Models (ASM) product family, enables realistic brake simulation for commercial vehicles, and comfort functions for passenger vehicles.
HELLA has signed a product evaluation contract with Nickel-Zinc (NiZn) battery developer PowerGenix and will conduct real-world vehicle tests to evaluate the ability of NiZN batteries to meet the high-power requirements of 48-volt mild hybrid systems, while also reducing overall system complexity and cost.
