EL SEGUNDO, CA, Oct. 4, 2016 -- Sensata Technologies, formerly Texas Instruments Sensors and Controls, leveraged the RF technology within NI AWR Design Environment to design a sophisticated and reliable tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that meets escalating safety demands for the global automobile market. These systems have proven to be very effective in reducing single-car accidents caused by insufficient tire pressure by transmitting information from sensors on each wheel to the automobile electronic dashboard to warn the driver of decreased tire pressure or a tire puncture.
"NI AWR Design Environment accessibility and ease of use significantly decreased the time and cost of the TPMS circuit analysis and optimization," said Nicolas Henriet, senior RF engineer at Sensata. "Microwave Office, AXIEM, and Analyst™ were pivotal in the analysis of circuit parasitics, tuning towards optimization and analysis of the effects of environmental disturbance, enabling Sensata to produce an overall more robust TPMS."
