Designing power solutions for automotive applications requires special care of several conditions that are specific for automotive environment: The very wide operating temperature range, input voltage fluctuations and stringent requirements on EMI/noise generation due to the nearby car radio receiver.Therefore, automotive applications require high reliability and good safety protections. Richtek has launched robust automotive products and design tools that simplify the automotive power design considerably for different applications including infotainment, advanced driver assistance systems(ADAS), telematics and others. We have offered a wide range of products from DC/DC converters, LDOs, power switch, LED drivers, PMICs to USB PD products. All of our products are automotive AEC-Q100 qualified in wide operating range meaning they are suitable for current and future automotive system designs. We strive to develop robust solutions with the highest quality in order to approach the goal of zero-defects. Our automotive products with high performance and reliability have successfully been selected by automotive manufacturers across the globe.

The infotainment system is the main control in automobiles. In order to deliver entertainment and information content, it requires a variety of high-end processors, human interface devices and codec devices for processing information, audio and video data. Richtek has developed reliable power solutions including PMICs, multi-phase DC/DC converters, display drivers, backlight drivers to support the infotainment system.
Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS)
The camera modules are the key parts for ADAS, normally operating in a harsh environment with size constraints. Richtek’s highly integrated power solutions provide selectable power sequence and small sizes, giving you the ability to work with different systems.
Telematics, telecommunication, informatics
Telematics is based on the idea of adding communication modules in the infotainment system to gather, store and transmit information about automobiles. Telematics encompasses telecommunication and Informatisation to provide users with diverse information. Richtek has offered comprehensive power solutions for different telematic systems.
Richtek have launched an extensive and dedicated range of products specially designed for USB PD and USB Type-A/Type-C fast charging applications since USB interface has become an ubiquitous charging standard. We have also developed design tools to accelerate your design process.
