Transceivers Boast More Automotive Interfaces

Oct. 21, 2009

SMSC has expanded its TrueAuto offering with the USB83340 USB 2.0 transceiver with high-performance electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection and overvoltage protection up to 30 V. It comes in a low-pin-count, 5- by 5-mm quad flat no-lead (QFN) package. The LAN8930 10/100 three-port managed Ethernet switch has a pair of ports with physical layers (PHYs) and one MII interface. It supports a serial management interface. These chips complement SMSC’s MOST chips (see

“The Line Between Telematics And Infotainment Blurs Even Further”

). All are automotive grade.

I earned a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology and a Masters in Computer Science from Rutgers University. I still do a bit of programming using everything from C and C++ to Rust and Ada/SPARK. I do a bit of PHP programming for Drupal websites. I have posted a few Drupal modules.  

I still get a hand on software and electronic hardware. Some of this can be found on our Kit Close-Up video series. You can also see me on many of our TechXchange Talk videos. I am interested in a range of projects from robotics to artificial intelligence.
