Hybrid And Electric Transports Will Be Safer With Toshiba’s IC And MCU Mass Productions


10/19/2015


Toshiba will be manufacturing a better monitoring regulator system for the electric and hybrid transports.



The “Semiconductor & Storage Products Company” of Toshiba Corporation to start mass production of "TB9042FTG", announced the company. The latter is a regulator IC system that comes with “monitoring function” which enables the monitoring of the “motor control system” in the hybrid and electrical vehicles. As per BusinessWire:
“The new IC is optimized for high efficiency systems, with a strengthened monitoring function to reduce potential risks that threaten the security of the system”.
 
In case the regulator IC system fails, the entire electronic device will malfunction. The microcontroller or the MCU failing will affect the operation as it particularly hampers the functional capacity of the system. However, to avoid such “dangerous condition”, the “TB9042FTG” is equipped with “an SPI communication function”. The MCU and IC “system regulator” together identify any trouble as and when any abnormality is detected while the SPI communication is continues to cross monitor. The information derived from the cross check mechanism is used to carry out the “safe and timely processing” of the system.
 
There are many key features of the system, including, built in two DCDC converters along with “three series regulators”, Multiple “monitoring functions” –
  • Regulators to provide continuous monitoring facility – (High output voltage, Low output voltage, Overcurrent, Overheat, Unusual frequency)
  • Constant check on MCU – (Watchdog Timer, MCU alarm, MCU calculation function, Communication error)
  • “Self-diagnosis” ability – (High output voltage, Low output voltage, Output logic of each detection circuit)
 
Talking about Toshiba, BussinessWire writes:
“Toshiba Corporation, a Fortune Global 500 company, channels world-class capabilities in advanced electronic and electrical product and systems into five strategic business domains: Energy & Infrastructure, Community Solutions, Healthcare Systems & Services, Electronic Devices & Components, and Lifestyles Products & Services. Guided by the principles of The Basic Commitment of the Toshiba Group, ‘Committed to People, Committed to the Future’, Toshiba promotes global operations and is contributing to the realization of a world where generations to come can live better lives”.
 
The company was founded in the year of 1875, in the city of Tokyo. At present, it has grown to be the “heart of a global network” which shelters under its wings more than “580 consolidated companies” wherein almost “199,000 people” from across the world are given employment, while annually the sales figures surpass a margin of “6.6 trillion yen” which is equivalent to “$55 billion”.
