LIN interface sensor signal conditioner delivers high accuracy and efficiency

14-07-2020 | Renesas | Automotive & Transport

Renesas Electronics Corporation has launched the ZSSC4132, an automotive pressure sensor solution providing an integrated certified LIN v2.2a interface. The single-package SSC achieves best-in-class performance, improved design flexibility, and cost-efficiency in a compact form factor for HVAC applications employed in plug-in PHEV, BEV, and FCEV climate control systems.

The device can be configured for almost all resistive bridge sensors. This flexibility, together with leading performance levels, integrated LIN PHY, small package footprint, and AEC-Q100 Grade 0 qualifications, makes the SSC suited for small automotive sensor modules with limited space, tight budget and EOL calibration demands.

“HVAC plays a significant role in EV battery range, and OEMs are looking for ways to improve system efficiency while maintaining high performance and staying within tight cost constraints,” said Christian Wolf, vice president, Automotive Sensor Business Division at Renesas. “With the ZSSC4132, customers can access a complete SSC solution that is already LIN certified, allowing them to easily and cost-effectively scale their HVAC system development for mid-range up to high-end EVs and HEVs.”
