Nexperia manager Stokkermans calls for greater ‘alignment’ of Dutch semicon ecosystem

May 27, 2022

Effective coordination of technology and markets would allow the Dutch high-tech industry to achieve more. As far as semicon man Joep Stokkermans is concerned, there is room for the chain to respond more effectively to market trends in the semiconductor industry. For chip manufacturer Nexperia in particular, completing the ecosystem is necessary for innovating, developing and applying semiconductor back-end-technology and equipment – because there is a great deal of money to be made from that technology and in order to improve the balance of power with Asia and the US. ‘In order to keep pace, we need to stay at the forefront of all the knowledge-intensive process steps. Otherwise sooner or later we will fall behind.’ Read more [Source: linkmagazine.nl]

How DFN packages reduce device size while delivering on thermal performance

May 4, 2022

The increasing number of electronic functions in modern cars must be realized within a given space. This space limitation has led to a growing device density on printed circuit boards (PCBs), necessitating components to shrink in size. However, smaller packages need to dissipate the same amount of heat on a reduced footprint, leading to a higher power density on the board. Read more

ESD Protection for Automotive High-Speed Video Links

January 11, 2022

Autonomous driving is one of the big trends predicted to change the future of the automotive industry. Its successful adoption is dependent on overcoming barriers such as the need for more safety and information for the driver and the passengers. This in turn is driving the development of Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) and safety infotainment applications for use in future autonomous vehicles. Nexperia’s latest whitepaper – ESD Protection for Automotive High-Speed Video Links, by Andreas Hardock and Lukas Droemer, explains how to protect high-speed video links in automotive interfaces without compromising signal integrity.

Enabling a Major Leap in Power Density

October 7, 2021


Power supplies are increasingly expected to reach heightened levels of efficiency, while still being as compact as possible, affordable and of course reliable and safe. One company overcoming these design challenges is Recom — an Austrian manufacturer of AC/DC power supplies and DC/DC. For a recent project, Recom wanted to develop a power supply which was primarily intended for medical applications. The goal was to create a solution which had double the power density of the company’s previous model without sacrificing safety, reliability, efficiency, or performance. Read more

How to provide the best ESD protection for automotive A/V interfaces

September 10, 2021

Drivers and vehicles now rely more heavily on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). While the use of systems such as RADAR and LiDAR will be important here, ADAS in vehicles also relies heavily on high-quality video imagery. As vehicles become more autonomous, the quality of these video streams will be more important. From a design aspect, high-speed video link design needs to consider how to maintain the signal integrity needed in such a harsh environment. Read more
