How to Improve TPMS Design Flow

Automobile safety concerns are increasing worldwide and a tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS) has proven to be a very effective way of reducing single car accidents caused by insufficient tire pressure. This article describes how Sensata Technologies used high-frequency software to enhance the design process and optimize its TPMS performance. The design team at Sensata was able to perform planar electromagnetic (EM) simulation, Monte-Carlo analysis combined with load-pull techniques, parametric optimization with component swapping, and EM environmental disturbance analysis—all within a single, integrated design environment, which saved considerable product development time.
