Many engineers are surprised to learn that commodity thick film chips, the most commonly specified resistor today, perform well in high moisture environments, but have some long-term reliability concerns in high-sulfur environments. In addition, certain SMD and thru-hole metal film resistors are susceptible to corrosion due to moisture. Fortunately, there are answers to both of these design challenges.
Broadcom, Freescale Semiconductor, and OmniVision Technologies announced a jointly developed 360-degree surround view parking assistance system – presented as the world’s first Ethernet-based parking assistance solution.
