How to Choose the Right Automotive TVS Diode

If you are an electronic engineer working in the automotive industry, you know how challenging it can be to design and protect circuits that operate in harsh environments. Transient voltage events, such as load dumps, inductive switching, electrostatic discharge (ESD), lightning strike, etc., can cause severe damage to sensitive semiconductor devices, such as microcontrollers, sensors,…

From Silicon Valley to the Open Road: The Automotive Semiconductor Market

What are automotive semiconductors and why they are important for the future of mobility Semiconductors are materials that have a conductivity between conductors (generally metals) and non-conductors or insulators (such as ceramics). They can be used to create electronic devices that can control the flow of electricity, such as transistors, diodes, sensors, microprocessors, memory chips,…
