The rapid growth of extremely complex electronic systems in automobiles has created even higher demands on power management ICs. In the past, high load currents, fast switching frequencies and high efficiency designs collectively created big EMI challenges. Linear Technology’s LT8640 unique design offers high efficiency, fast switching, enabling a very compact solution footprint – all in ultralow EMI emissions, setting a new standard in power ICs. Fortunately, a new generation of synchronous power ICs is now available to pave the way for even higher electronic content in future vehicles.
