Hardware Protection – OverVoltage and OverCurrent

Power Supply Parameters Three major power supply (Figure 1) architectures are defined for any engineer: 1.Linear Regulators. 2.Pulse width modulated switching (PWM). 3.High resonant technology switching. Vin(low), Vin(high) – minimum and maximum allowed input voltages, hence input voltage range. Iin(max) – maximum average input current. Outputs: Vout(min), Vout(max) – minimum and maximum allowed output voltages, …

Tyre pressure monitoring system using Bluetooth Low Energy

A tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) aims to monitor air pressure on various automotive systems. The most common TPMS sensors mainly use sub-GHz radio standards to transfer information to the vehicle’s computer. There are two different types: direct (dTPMS) and indirect (iTPMS). The use of blue tooth low energy (BLE) connectivity makes it possible offering …
