  • New eBook – Mouser and Texas Instruments Offer Guide to Navigate the Future of Urban Air Mobility in New eBook

Mouser has launched a new eBook in collaboration with Texas Instruments, to explore the latest challenges facing the next generation of air transportation and to discuss the best ways for designers to overcome them. The prospect of safe, convenient and efficient urban air transport offers an exciting look into the future. The chance to reduce road traffic and travel by air would save commuters’ time and cut down on urban carbon emissions. However, in order to guarantee the successful long-term future of UAM vehicles, safety and a positive public perception will be of vital importance. In Addressing New Challenges in Urban Air Mobility, a range of eight industry experts offer their insights about the rapidly developing trend for electric Urban Air Mobility (UAM) vehicles. The five chapters of the eBook cover a glimpse into the future of UAM vehicles, the latest challenges facing the industry, how to ensure functional safety, the importance of electrical isolation and managing UAM complexity and weight. The eBook features quick links to help designers improve functional safety, electrical isolation and battery management systems for UAM vehicles. They include cutting-edge components from Texas Instruments, such as the UCC14240-Q1 Evaluation Module, the TVS3300 ESD Suppressor and the THVD8010 and THVD8000 Transceivers.
