Future Electronics Partnering with VARTA in Offering Batteries for eCall Systems

Montreal, Canada – October 16, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, promotes a variety of batteries from VARTA Microbattery.

Immediately after a car accident or while in distress, an emergency call (eCall) system wirelessly transmits the vehicle’s precise location, direction of travel, exact time and number of occupants as it sends a call for help. These signals can be automatic – triggered by severe impact – or manual – when the distress button is pressed. If all cars were equipped with these devices – sensors and the standardization of communication systems were in place – countries would save billions of dollars a year and hundreds of thousands of lives.

Telematics technology for vehicle systems – wireless data delivery, route advisories, traffic information and public safety answering point systems – will soon be universalized with standardization in communication protocols.

Future Electronics, in partnership with VARTA Microbattery Inc., can provide a variety of battery chemistries to fit these types of critical vehicle applications. VARTA’s engineers and consultants are meeting the demands of OEMs – small and large. Future Electronics and VARTA are ready to work with you to help design a successful finished product with extensive engineering and Best-In-Class consultation.

Future Electronics Promotes Automotive Hall Effect Latches from Diodes Inc.

Montreal, Canada – October 20, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has announced immediate availability of high performance automotive Hall effect latches from Diodes, Inc., featuring a wide range of sensitivity options.

The AH376xQ family of AECQ100-qualified Hall effect latches from Diodes Incorporated offers eight magnetic sensitivity options to cover the requirements of numerous automotive applications. Such uses include commutation, encoding and position control of the various motors, pumps, fans and valves found in vehicle cabins for operating windows, sun roofs, seats, tailgates and air-conditioning.

These Hall effect latches can also be used in the engine bay for steering and sensing the speed and position of the crankshaft, camshafts, cooling fans, and water, oil and fuel pumps. With an extended -40°C to +150°C temperature range and a 3V to 28V supply voltage range, the AH376xQ devices provide robust and reliable operation by tolerating the harsh automotive environment with its extremes of low crank voltage as well as over-voltage excursions. Comprehensive protection features enhance this robustness: a low leakage blocking diode guards against reverse supply connection; input and output clamps help withstand transient voltages; and an output current limit avoids overload. Plus, the devices have an ESD capability of 8kV and can withstand a transient load dump up to 32V. The AH376xQ family provides eight different magnetic operation and release thresholds (BOP and BRP) to address the wide variety of applications with regard to magnet strength or sensor to magnet distance. These range from the highest BOP/BRP sensitivity of +25G/-25G to the lowest sensitivity of +210G/-210G. Pin compatibility is maintained across the range and all devices are offered in industry-standard SOT23 and SIP3 packages. The AH3762Q/3Q/4Q/5Q are also offered in an SC59 package and provide the opposite polarity for magnetic detection compared to the SOT23 package. The AH376xQ Hall effect latch ICs offer superior performance with a fast 10μs power-on time and a quick 3.75μs response time to reduce delays and commutation errors. A chopper stabilized design with a low temperature coefficient minimizes switch point drift and provides enhanced immunity to stress. Flexibility is further enhanced by the open-drain output configuration, allowing the external pull-up resistor value to be adjusted to suit the application.

The AH376xQ Hall effect latch family is fully qualified to the automotive AECQ100 standard, meets the AIAG production part approval process (PPAP), and is available in SOT23, SIP3 or SC59 packages.

Future Electronics Promotes Vishay’s PowerPAK 8x8L Package

Montreal, Canada – October 19, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, promotes the space and power saving PowerPAK® 8x8L package AEC-Q101 from Vishay, qualified for automotive applications.

Vishay’s SQJQ402E, the industry’s first AEC-Q101 qualified, 100% lead-free MOSFET in 8 x 8mm footprint, offers high temperature operation to +175°C providing the ruggedness and reliability required for automotive applications. The internal construction of the device’s PowerPAK 8x8L 8 x 8mm package minimizes inductance and enables a low maximum on-resistance of 1.5mΩ at 10V and 1.8mΩ at 4.5V.

Additional design features also provide very high continuous drain current capability up to 200A. The device also features gull-wing leads specifically designed to reduce PCB solder joint stress caused by the wide range of operating temperatures commonly experienced in automotive applications.

To save PCB space and costs, and enable the creation of smaller and lighter modules in applications where multiple MOSFETs are often required, the SQJQ402E offers similar on-resistance and higher continuous current than devices in the D2PAK, while providing a 60% smaller footprint area and 60% thinner profile. To save power, the SQJQ402E offers half the on-resistance, twice the current, and a 21% smaller profile than devices in the DPAK, all with only a 12% larger footprint. The SQJQ402E signals the release of an extensive roadmap of MOSFETs that will allow designers to exploit the benefits of this package in a multitude of automotive applications such as motor drives, electric power steering, transmission control, and injector drives.

Future Electronics Promotes MLU Magnetic Sensors from Crocus

Montreal, Canada – October 14, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, promotes CTSR218 MLU magnetic sensors from Crocus Technology.

The Crocus sensor CTSR218 is an excellent choice for high current measurements. A simple technique for measuring the current flowing in a conductor is based on Faraday’s Law of induction, and typically involves placing a coil around the conductor, thereby the current flowing in a conductor produces an output equivalent to the rate of change of current.

Integrating this output produces a voltage proportional to the current, which can then be monitored using an instrument such as an oscilloscope. This approach is non-invasive and it does not require direct electrical connection. Since the coil is isolated from the current in the conductor being measured, the method is also safe for measuring high currents. However it also has a drawback – the coil can only generate a response when an alternating current is measured.

This limitation can be overcome by using MLU magnetic sensors from Crocus Technology that offer the capability of measuring both DC and AC currents in the wide dynamic range from several amperes to thousand amperes in many of industrial applications.

For more information about Crocus, MLU magnetic sensors, current sensors, and high current measurements, visit www.FutureElectronics.com
