Vehicular Electronics Research Topics & Contributors

vehicular electronics researchers at workVehicular electronics research focuses on vehicle electronic systems integration, vehicle communications, power distribution, electromagnetic compatibility, and electromagnetic modeling. The lab also works with companies to provide the tools and training necessary to ensure that their products will meet electromagnetic compatibility and reliability requirements.

Here is a sampling of current research projects being conducted in this area:
•    Efficient low-noise power inverters
•    Failure-Mode Models for MLCC and Tantalum Capacitors
•    Using unintentional emissions to anticipate MOSFET and IGBT failures
•    Safe and reliable automotive electronics
•    Component-level characterization for system-level EMC simulations
•    First-pass compliance with automotive EMC requirements
•    Maximum radiated emissions calculator
•    Improved circuit board filters employing SMT capacitors
