ON Semiconductor Meets AEC Challenges with Electrothermal Analysis
Semiconductor Engineering

Smart FET driver ICs for automotive present verification challenges when verifying short circuit reliability. These ICs are deployed in many automotive applications, including bulb/LED and solenoid/actuator loads and relay and fuse replacement. In addition to meeting stringent industry requirements, these FET drivers must work in harsh operating environments. This article explains how Mentor’s electrothermal analysis platform helped ON Semiconductor meet these requirements.

 
 

Rob Bates on Safety and ISO26262
