International and AEM Sign Standards Development Agreement
SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) International and the Association of
Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) signed a memorandum of agreement (MOU) to further
the development of standards for the off-highway industry.
Release Automotive Transient Generator System
not since they had their fall-out with EM Test has AR really had much to offer
the Automotive test field, so although this looks rather large, it also looks
be the latest thing as within the same month as AR announce a transient tester,
so did Kikusui? I recall the days
when only Schaffner (now Teseq) made this type of equipment, just shows how
popular Automotive EMC testing is becoming.
Still on The Rise
not all doom and gloom in the Auto-Electronics industry, apparently Electronic
Stability Control (ESC) is still showing healthy signs of growth and moving down
the segment chain.
Design Software from Murata
it relates to their own components, but even so, its good to find free filter
software and the results donít have to only be applicable to Murataís parts
(not that there is anything wrong with this companyís products, they are one
of our personal favourite MLCC and ferrite suppliers).
A Standardisation Effort Save GM?
is the possible premise of this article from Automotive Design Line.
We agree that better and more open standards from the vehicle
manufacturers would make components for cars potentially cheaper.
It was part of the reason for releasing our own AutoEMC Standard and
making it freely available. But in
itself its unlikely such things could save a company and we suspect the roots of
GMís woes are much deeper than the World Book process.
the credit crunch hitting just about every industry we hope you are safe in your
jobs and look forward to continuing to serve you information into the New Year.
Christmas, a Happy New Year and Happy Holidays to all our subscribers.
