Autonomous cars need a whole armada of sensors: lidar, radar and cameras. A cooperation between chip manufacturer STMicroelectronics and the Israeli start-up company AdaSky is now bringing an additional layer of information into the sensor landscape: a thermal imaging camera in the far infrared range helps the car to recognise its environment even in darkness and poor visibility.
Qualcomm Inc. (San Diego, Calif.) has raised its offer for NXP Semiconductors Inc. to $127.50 per share in cash and lowered the minimum tender threshold to 70 percent to try and get its long-running deal done.
TT Electronics has developed the LRMAP5930 series of low resistance, metal alloy current sense power resistors. With values down to 200μΩ and a corresponding power rating on standard FR4 PCB of up to 10W, the maximum measurable current is over 200A, and hence in most cases restricted only by the capacity of the PCB tracks. A 50% higher power rating of 15W can be achieved for assemblies mounted on a thermal substrate such as direct bonded ceramic (DBC) or insulated metal substrate (IMS), making these resistors ideal for hybrid modules.
Chronocam, the developer of event-based vision sensors based on a bio-inspired bandwidth-efficient architecture, has changed its name to Prophesee and announced an initial closing of a $19 million funding round.
