Driver safety, whether on the road or via cybersecurity, needs significant consideration, making it more vital for automotive designers to have access to trustworthy resources and made-to-order components.

The company offers technical resources for various automotive design aspects, such as LiDAR design and ADAS power, in the all-inclusive content hub. Access to its articles, videos, and blogs allows designers of all skill levels to find advanced solutions with reputable components.

The company stocks the industry's widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components, including the following solutions for autonomous vehicle applications:

u-blox SAM-M10Q Standard Precision GNSS Antenna Module is a small, high-performance module with a simple interface that allows easy inclusion into user designs. The low power consumption permits greater power autonomy for battery-operated devices. This device delivers excellent out-band jamming immunity, such as caused by mobile phones. The device also detects jamming and spoofing attempts and reports them to the host so the system can react to such events.

The ams OSRAM SPL SxL90A LiDAR QFN Packaged SMT Lasers enable autonomous vehicles to 'see' farther and more effectively with the infrared LiDAR components. These devices offer low-thermal resistance to withstand temperatures at high currents. These lasers are specifically made for industrial automation, 3D sensing and more.

STMicroelectronics SPC58 N Line Performance Microcontrollers are constructed to perform at high speeds with three cores that process accurately in real time. Fulfilling the highest ASIL-D safety levels, these microcontrollers are excellent for different automotive applications, such as powertrains, HEVs, and ADAS. These devices support high operating temperatures and provide augmented connectivity via various communication interfaces.

The Taoglas Raptor III MA1280 7-in-1 Public Safety Antenna is mounted in a small, robust, IP67-rated enclosure. The antenna is ideal for all automotive and commercial trucking applications and can be modified for usage at different frequencies. It provides multiband GNSS (GPS/GLONASS/BeiDou/Galileo), two 5G/4G cellular MIMOs, two dual-band Wi-Fi, active AM/FM, and LMR (700 MHz to 900 MHz) antennas.
