The personal electronics industry is the driving force behind what features consumers want to see in their vehicles. Automakers are left designing for these personal electronics but must cater to specific automotive needs. This course will be a deep dive at architecting and solving the challenges associated with implementing system level protection in automotive USB Type-C and legacy USB applications. From Short-to-Vbus and Short-to-Battery faults, to Over-current and ESD protection.
ESD (electrostatic discharge) and surge transients are some of the most common events to plague ICs. However, just because your system is likely to encounter an event doesn’t mean that decisions related to protection should be rushed. We’ve put together two series of trainings to cover critical considerations regarding ESD and surge. Watch all of the short videos in order for a comprehensive overview, or learn at your own pace and choose the specific topic you need a refresher on.
From understanding working voltages to knowing what to look for in datasheets, these trainings quickly dive into the basics so you can shorten the selection process and choose the right diode confidently.
