Safety-critical automotive systems, such as electric power steering (EPS), must meet the requirements of ASIL-D , the highest automotive safety integrity level prescribed in ISO 26262, “Road Vehicles – Functional Safety.” Toshiba’s new brushed motor pre-driver IC integrates essential functions, including a pre-driver circuit and motor current detection circuit, plus various failure detection circuits for higher functional safety.
Toshiba has also carried out a range of functional safety analyses to simulate various system failures and will provide customers with documentation to support safety analysis and design.
Key Features of the New Product
1. Built-in motor current detection circuit
Can simplify the system and reduce PCB size.
2. Redundant function for functional safety
Motor current detection circuit with redundant configuration for functional safety.
3. Motor control is selectable
Depending on the system, sequence control or direct control is selectable.
4. Pre-Driver operation is selectable when failure is detected
Control by pre-driver or MCU is selectable, when failure is detected.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...

Any Ops team trying to support a company in today’s cloud-connected world knows that a new way of thinking is required – one just as dramatic than the shift from Ops to DevOps. The diversity of modern operations requires teams to focus their impact on breadth vs. depth. In his session at DevOps Summit, Adam Serediuk, Director of Operations at xMatters, Inc., will discuss the strategic requirements of evolving from Ops to DevOps, and why modern Operations has begun leveraging the “NoOps” approa...
