Internal combustion engines (ICE) require advanced designs to meet performance goals, at the same time these engine control modules must diagnose and mitigate problems that would prevent the vehicle from operating properly. Supplementary Restraint Systems (SRS) detect crash events and respond to data from imaging, LiDAR and radar systems to provide functions such as airbag deployment and seat belt pre-tensioners to protect vehicle occupants. Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) and Passive Entry Passive Start (PEPS) systems are integrating Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to allow seamless access to your car with your phone, thereby improving the user experience. Functions such as Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPMS) and ultrasonic sensing have become commonplace on many vehicles to help improve awareness and safety for both drivers and pedestrians.
Ignition IGBTs, power management, analog signal chain products, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) SoCs, System Basis Chips (SBC), in-vehicle networking (IVN), MOSFETs, memory and standard logic are available from onsemi to address the demanding requirements within this area of automotive design.

Gate Driver Solutions
Every switch needs a gate driver. Gate Driver Products are the interface between control signals (from a digital or analog controller) and power switches (IGBTs, MOSFETs, SiC MOSFETs, and GaN HEMTs).
