This interactive application note contains embedded Cloud based simulations to augment the text.
To open the embedded simulation, simply hover over the simulation image. Left click anywhere in the graphic area once the central play button changes in colour. This opens the schematic in the Cloud environment. See the interactive application note tutorial page for more details on how to use the simulations.
In this interactive application note the airbag operating conditions and related simulations are analysed. The MOSFET in the airbag operates in linear mode and bears significant current and voltage at the same time, so it gives a big challenge to the MOSFET SOA curve.
