Smart Power IC's for Automotive Applications 871588
Smart Power products have found applications in many electronic markets such as consumer products, telecommunications, EDP and, last but certainly not least, the automotive market. The auto's complex systems, taken together with numerous performance and feature options, will define a wide variety of requirements for smart power and smart sensing-power ICs as well as smart sensors, uP's, and other application specific semiconductors. These varied smart power requirements ranging from low currents (tens or hundreds of mA), to very high currents (up to 50-100 amperes), will find solutions in several technologies. Existing bipolar and BiHOS processes as well as emerging D/CMOS and C/DMOS will each find use in Automotive smart power IC's.
