Multimedia / infotainment bus protection

Essential for entertainment and infotainment systems, multimedia buses are a growing trend in vehicles. For these high-speed buses, which often based on consumer network standards, the challenge is to ensure they can survive the harsh automotive environment and as data rates go up so capacitance must come down. So only the best ESD protection is good enough to ensure reliable operation.

Design considerations

  • High ESD robustness up to 30 kV and high surge currents up to 3.5 A (8/20µs)
  • Excellent ESD clamping behavior
  • Operate at a low capacitance avoiding any unwanted circuit disturbances

Driving efficiency takes pole position

Today’s cars are undergoing the greatest transformation the industry has seen. Continued electrification is resulting in significant change from the engine right through to the cloud. Consistently delivering the right functionality, with the right performance, in the right package is how Nexperia is helping ‘driving efficiency’ win.
