Nuremberg, Germany – February 16th, 2017 – Diodes Incorporated will be introducing a number of notable new products at Embedded World 2017 in Nuremberg, Germany, March 14-16. These include the industry’s first unidirectional 1800W automotive-compliant transient voltage suppressors; 40V and 60V dual, co-packaged enhancement mode MOSFETs that are also qualified for automotive applications; and, coming from its Pericom connectivity product line, the world’s first and only automotive, AEC-Q100 grade, PCIe Packet Switches.

“What better place to unveil automotive solutions than in Germany, home to some of the world’s leading automobile manufacturers, and at a show that is dedicated to the design of embedded electronic systems”, said Oliver Woyke, Diodes’ Director of Sales for Europe, Middle East & Africa, “The combination of traditional discrete, logic, analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products with our connectivity and timing product line means Diodes is even better placed to serve the embedded market and especially the automotive industry”.

Vehicle telematics and infotainment systems demand connectivity that meets both the latest communication standards and automotive reliability criteria. Representing the first-ever packet switches to be automotive-qualified to AEC-Q100 grade 3, are two members of Diodes PI7C9X2G PCI Express® 2.0 family. These parts provide 3‑port/4‑lane and 4‑port/4‑lane configurations while for non-automotive applications, such as embedded, networking and storage, Diodes is also introducing 9‑port/12‑lane and 16‑port/16‑lane versions. The automotive versions of these packet switches also have an integrated clock buffer to ease design and lower BOM cost, and feature advanced power management and support hot-plug operation.

Diodes’ new transient voltage suppressor (TVS) design is uniquely capable of handling repetitive reverse avalanche pulses up to a peak pulse power dissipation of 1800W, some 20% higher than alternative surface mount component (SMC) products. Additionally, the device has been engineered to fit into a low-profile, thermally efficient PowerDI5 package that is half the height of the industry standard SMC package and has a 40% smaller PCB footprint. Qualification to AEC-Q101 supported by a PPAP (production part approval process) provides the essential high reliability and traceability required for this device’s target applications in automotive infotainment, navigation and advanced driver assistance systems.

Aimed at similar automotive end-applications to the TVS devices, the latest 40V and 60V dual, co-packaged enhancement mode MOSFETs introduced by Diodes aim to minimize power losses in order to deliver cost-effective, high-efficiency power management designs. For example, when used to build a DC-DC converter using with a PWM control IC, the 60V device can achieve 95% efficiency while delivering a 5V output at a load current of 2A. Both devices are qualified to the AEC-Q101 Rev D high-reliability standard and supported by PPAP.

Diodes will be exhibiting on Booth 431 in Hall 3A, and welcomes visitors to come and find out more about these exciting new products.
