Rohm

The range of uses for LiDAR sensors is expanding to include not only autonomous driving, but also applications in the industrial and infrastructure fields. Improvements to LiDAR sensors are producing longer range and higher resolution.

In addition to improving the characteristics of the laser diode, it is necessary to drive the laser diode at higher speeds and power. The ROHM RLD90QZWx series is a line of 905 nm, high-power, narrow emission-width laser diodes.

The REFLD002-1 reference design includes the BD2311NVX-LB gate driver to drive the RLD90QZWx laser diode. The high speed of the BD2311NVX-LB contributes to improved LiDAR sensor range and resolution.

Microchip

The RNBD451 Add-On Board is an efficient, low-cost development platform based on the RNBD451PE Bluetooth® Low Energy module from Microchip. 

The board complies with the mikroBUS™ add-on bus standard. It also includes an on-board MCP2200 USB-to-UART converter, enabling out-of-the-box evaluation with no other hardware requirements.

The RNBD451 Add-On Board supports a wide range of applications:

  • Wireless lighting
  • Home automation
  • IoT devices
  • Industrial automation
  • General-purpose Bluetooth data exchange
Vishay

The SIP32433xEVB evaluation boards provide a convenient tool for evaluating the operation of the SIP32433A load switch, with latch off, and SIP32433B with auto retry. Operating from a supply-voltage range of 3 V to 23 V, the boards demonstrate the programmable current-limit range of the two devices, 150 mA to 3.5 A. 

The boards provide an input path current-sense resistor for current probing, and an onboard MOSFET for output short-circuit testing.

Renesas

The FS3000-EVK enables the quick discovery of the sensitivity and response of the FS3000 module to air flows. The kit includes a FS3000 module adapter board, together with an extension cable to enable the engineer to take measurements at the point of interest, such as inside an air duct.

The kit is powered by a 3.3 V battery supply. It is supplied with an interface board that has an OLED display. Renesas software enables logging of the sensor’s measurement data.
