The automotive industry is undergoing a transformational change with technology – it's no longer just about what's under the hood. From sensors and semiconductor chips to cameras and advanced electronic systems, the prospect of a self-driving car appears to be a matter of when, not if. With one-in-five cars expected to be equipped with wireless connectivity and real-time analytics by 2020, the opportunity for the automotive industry and its technology partners could be significant for capturing the imagination of the next generation of car enthusiasts.

What is now called the "Internet of Things" is a key driver for the connected car movement. For example, semiconductor components are expected to grow from $320 to over $400 per car in the next few years as it popularizes features like vehicle-to-vehicle communication, stolen vehicle recovery security, and in-car infotainment services.

    Microchip Expands Solutions for Aerospace and Defense, Industrial and Automotive Applications with New High-Speed Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) Family

    80 Megasamples per second (MSPS) ADCs deliver reliability and integrated features for high-frequency, high-temperature applicationsCHANDLER, Ariz., Sept. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- System designers have limited options for small, robust, feature-rich high-speed ADCs for extended-temperature operation. Microchip Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MCHP) today announced it has filled this gap with its MCP37Dx1-80 family, the company’s second pipelined ADC offering and first to combine 80 MSPS in a choice of 12-, 14- and 16-bit resolutions, integrated digital features and qualification to a higher temperature range, including Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) Q100.  “Our latest ADCs meet growing customer demand for robust devices that can be used in high-temperature applications and offer integrated digital processing functions that simplify design and reduce overall development costs,” said Bryan Liddiard, Vice President, Mixed-Signal and Linear division at Microchip. “The MCP37Dx1-80 family joins Microchip’s 200 MSPS ADCs to expand our high-speed offering into a much broader range of system design concepts.” Microchip’s MCP37Dx1-80 ADCs enable a wide variety of aerospace and defense, industrial and automotive systems that require a high level of reliability. Key ADC device features include: * Robust and reliable design architecture: The ADCs operate over a -40°C to +125°C temperature range and are among the few high-speed ADCs in the industry qualified to AEC-Q100 grade 1 standards. This makes them ideal for demanding applications such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), autonomous driving, Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites and test and measurement equipment. * Integrated digital features that eliminate external components and reduce MCU post-processing: Decimation filters improve signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), while a digital down-converter (DDC) supports communication designs and a noise-shaping requantizer in the 12-bit ADCs improves accuracy and performance. * Small size: Their compact 8mm x 8mm 121-pin ball grid array (BGA) packages with 0.65mm pitch also include built-in reference decoupling capacitors that further reduce cost and overall footprint by eliminating the need for external bypass capacitors.Development Tools Evaluation boards with graphical user interface (GUI) and firmware are available for Microchip’s 12-,14- and 16-bit MCP37Dx1-80 ADCs as a development aid for customers.Pricing and Availability The 12-bit MCP37D11-80, 14-bit MCP37D21-80 and 16-bit MCP37D31-80 ADCs are available for volume production now. They are priced at $17.45, $29.87 and $40.42 each, respectively, in 10,000-unit volumes.

    Google Makes Data Pledge to Win EU Nod for Fitbit Deal

    (Bloomberg) -- Google offered an improved package of concessions to avoid shutting out rival fitness trackers and apps in a bid to clinch European Union approval for its $2.1 billion takeover of Fitbit, the company said in a statement.Building on an earlier pledge not to use Fitbit data for Google ads, the company is trying to assure rival trackers and apps that it won’t shut them off from Google services.The company is “formalizing our longstanding commitment to supporting other wearable manufacturers on Android and to continue to allow Fitbit users to connect to third party services” via applications if they want to, it said in the Tuesday statement.The new offer hits many of the points brought up by rivals concerned that the deal could create a powerful controller of personal data that could also prevent competing apps and wearable trackers from working with Google’s services. If feedback from rivals and customers is positive, the European Commission could then approve the Fitbit deal before a Dec. 23 deadline.The EU dismissed an earlier pledge to keep Fitbit data separate from Google’s information last month, saying it didn’t address all its concerns and didn’t include all Fitbit data that could be used for advertising.Antitrust agencies are increasingly suspicious of tech giants’ takeovers, aiming to prevent the already powerful firms from conquering innovative new markets where data is often the most prized asset.The EU opened an in-depth probe into the Fitbit deal last month to check how Google could bolster its “data advantage” in online advertising with information it collects from Fitbit’s wearable trackers.The EU’s wide focus on online ads clashes with Google’s view that the “deal is about devices, not data” and that it’s adding a service -- wearable health devices -- where it currently isn’t active and faces plenty of rivals from Apple Inc., Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., Garmin Ltd. and others.“The wearables space is highly crowded, and we believe the combination of Google and Fitbit’s hardware efforts will increase competition in the sector, benefiting consumers and making the next generation of devices better and more affordable,” Google said in the statement.(Updates with Google statement starting in first paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
