It offers superb thermal performance, due to its novel design.
The v1 paper was titled:
Adversarial Attacks Against Medical Deep Learning Systems (15 Apr 2018), and reads differently enough.
To the editor: Please do your homework in physics. There is a wrong expession in your story: " resulting in better mileage or miles per watt of energy" pre WATT of enery is wron because the unit Watt...
@thabatao Modern cars are already full of computers - electronic control units or ECUs - and I've no doubt future autonomous vehicles will feature an integrated network of smart sensors. The network will...
Why not have several independent processors running each side of the vehicle. The Raspberries and similar processors could be used or something similar in a more rugged form. Then use a mother computer...
Rohm's BD9V100MUF-C Buck converter with Nano Pulse Control™ is so unique, it allows a Vin of 60V input to supply Vout 5.5V or less in a single stage with a maximum output current of 1A and an accuracy of +/-2%
A new power choke coil for automotive use is presented by Panasonic Industry. With this vibration resistent power choke coil the ECU can be implemend within the engine.
The Rohm BD9S Series DC /DC converters are intended for safe driving assistance modules within automobiles. With the emergence of self-driving cars, collision avoidance systems are paramount, discover how BD9S can be used within autonomous vehicles.
Automobile manufacturers are constantly beating each other with increasingly shorter charging times and longer ranges for electric vehicles. But this calculation only works to a limited extent.
Overcurrents aren’t the only threat to modern electronics. Excessively high temperatures are increasingly becoming the number one enemy due to high power density. But how can such a danger be avoided? It makes sense to use thermal fuses.
Electricity is nothing new when it comes to the car industry, however, the next generation of automobiles will be using it for more than just windows.
Recently, the trend has been to include more complex features (such as infotainment) and the aesthetics and ergonomics of interior controls became more important in the switch selection. The design process now revolves around haptics and acoustics.
The automotive industry is making a huge shift to electric vehicles, this, in turn, is driving huge development and innovation in batteries. One of the biggest issues...efficiency.
The recent increase in demand for pure electric and plug hybrid cars has highlighted the critical role played by a previously unsung vehicle component: the DC/DC converter. Discover how Keysight is turning converter testing challenges into solutions.
The BA8290xYxx-C series of op-amps eliminates the need for noise countermeasures in automotive sensor applications.
The UK government has a manifesto commitment for all cars and vans on the roads to have zero emissions by 2050. So, unless ‘wireless power’ can be developed quickly, cars will need electric motors with batteries or fuel cells for energy storage.
