A camera (10) suitable for use on an automated vehicle includes an imager-device (12), a lens-module (30), and an array (34) of light-guides (36). The imager-device (12) is operable to determine an image (14) and includes a plurality of light-detecting pixels (20). Each pixel is overlaid with a micro-lens (22). The lens-module (30) directs light (26) from a field-of-view (32) of the camera (10) toward the imager-device (12). The array (34) of light-guides (36) is interposed between the lens-module (30) and the imager-device (12), and is arranged so each instance of light-guide (36) is aligned with a corresponding instance of micro-lens (22). Each light-guide (36) is defined by a lens-end (38) and an imager-end (40). The lens-end (38) of each of the light-guides (36) cooperates to define a planar-surface (42) of the array (34), and imager-end (40) of the light-guide (36) is characterized by an angle (44) selected to direct light (26) within the light-guide (36) toward the corresponding instance of the micro-lens (22). The angle (44) is determined based on a chief-ray-angle (24) (CRA (24)) of light (26) from the lens-module (30) impinging on the lens-end (38).

A gate-driver device (10) for operating a field-effect-transistor (12) (FET (12)) includes a pull-down-block (16) and a pull-up-block (22) resistant to or protected from short circuits of the gate (18) drive signal output by the device (10). The pull-down-block (16) is operable to drive a gate (18) of a FET (12) to a low-voltage (20). The pull-up-block (22) includes a resistive-pull-up (24) operable to an ON-state and an OFF-state to switchably couple the gate (18) to the high-voltage (32) via an upper-resistive-element (26), and a current-pull-up (28) arranged in parallel with the resistive-pull-up (24). The current-pull-up (28) is operable to an ON-state and an OFF-state to control a current-source (30) applied to the gate (18). When the pull-up-block (22) drives the gate (18) to the high-voltage (32), the resistive-pull-up (24) and the current-pull-up (28) operates from the OFF-state to the ON-state. A turn-on-interval (42) after the resistive-pull-up (24) operates from the OFF-state to the ON-state the resistive-pull-up (24) operates to the OFF-state while the current-pull-up (28) is maintained in the ON-state. Optionally, the pull-down-block (16) may be similarly configured.

A camshaft phaser (12) includes an input member (18) and an output member (20) defining an advance chamber (42) and a retard chamber (44); a valve spool (30) moveable along an axis (16) between an advance position and a retard position and having a valve spool bore (106) with a phasing volume (110) and a venting volume (112) defined therein such that the phasing volume (110) is fluidly segregated from the venting volume (112), the valve spool (30) having a first spool recirculation passage (134) and a second spool recirculation passage (134) which is diametrically opposed to the first spool recirculation passage (134). The first spool recirculation passage (134) and the second spool recirculation passage (134) provide paths for oil to flow from the advance chamber (42) or the retard chamber (44) to the phasing volume (110) depending on the position of the valve spool (30).
