Australia : HOT ROD I-Bar chokes for automotive networks launched by Pulse Electronics

June 21, 2014

Electronic components manufacturer Pulse Electronics has launched a new concept to offer EMC/EMI protection for automotive electronics, the HOT ROD I-Bar chokes for automotive networks.

I-Bar HOT ROD range of chokes are said to be capable of handling Broadcom Corporation's BroadR-Reach Automotive Ethernet technology for mode conversion of about 400MHz.

As per to the company, the first AE2000 choke of the series addresses the need for current generation of 100Mbps BroadR-Reach automotive Ethernet transceivers.

Pulse Electronics Europe Senior Marketing FAE Robert Frost said automotive Ethernet adoption is moving at a rapid pace.

Frost added, "For many years Pulse has worked closely with the leading semiconductor companies, such as Broadcom, to develop innovative solutions for the automotive market .

"Our latest HOT ROD AE2000 device meets the needs for 100 Mbps BroadR-Reach Automotive Ethernet better than any other small design on the market."

HOT ROD AE20xx small-sized SMD components have gained sanctioned of the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) to meet the reliability criteria of AEC-Q200.

The new range of chokes can be used for noise suppression on Ethernet-based networks transmitting data, video, and voice over a single unshielded twisted pair within a vehicle.

The vehicle networks can in addition be used for driver-assist applications and equipment combining camera, LiDAR, and sensor feeds like surround or birds-eye camera views, self-parking, blind spot alerts, or collision avoidance as well as infotainment systems.

Broadcom Corporation Automotive associate product line director Nimesh Doshi said that the automotive industry has willingly embraced BroadR-Reach automotive Ethernet technology as the standard in automotive connectivity.

Doshi added, "The addition of Pulse's AE2000 product to the Automotive Ethernet ecosystem will provide more options to system implementers and help further proliferate Ethernet into a broad range of vehicles .
