First and second semiconductor die are mounted to first and second die pads of a lead frame disposed in a lead frame sheet. With a plurality of wire bonds, each post of a plurality of posts of the lead frame is connected to the first and second semiconductor die. Each post extends inward from opposite sides of the lead frame between the first and second die pads and is connected with a respective one of a plurality of leads of the lead frame. The first and second semiconductor die, the plurality of posts of the lead frame, and the plurality of wire bonds are encapsulated in a package. The lead frame sheet is sheared to define each lead of the plurality of leads. The plurality of posts includes first and second sets of posts extending inward from first and second opposite sides of the lead frame.

A device includes a semiconductor substrate having a first conductivity type, a device isolating region in the semiconductor substrate, defining an active area, and having a second conductivity type, a body region in the active area and having the first conductivity type, and a drain region in the active area and spaced from the body region to define a conduction path of the device, the drain region having the second conductivity type. At least one of the body region and the device isolating region includes a plurality of peripheral, constituent regions disposed along a lateral periphery of the active area, each peripheral, constituent region defining a non-uniform spacing between the device isolating region and the body region. The non-uniform spacing at a respective peripheral region of the plurality of peripheral, constituent regions establishes a first breakdown voltage lower than a second breakdown voltage in the conduction path.


A method of detecting a set up signal having a predetermined frequency and used for data transmissions over a communication network comprises comparing an energy level of a filtered received signal with a first predetermined value and providing a first detect signal, comparing an energy level of a component of the received signal at a predetermined frequency with a second predetermined value and providing a second detect signal. In addition, an autocorrelation function is performed on the received signal to discriminate between the set up signal and other signals in the received signal and a check signal is provided when the autocorrelation function identifies the set up signal. The set up signal in the received signal is detected in response to the first and the second detect signals and the check signal. A method of detecting phase reversals in the set up signal is also disclosed.

A method of regulating an output voltage of an alternator. The method comprises measuring first and second external contacts of the alternator regulator module operably coupled to first and second output contacts of the alternator respectively during an ON state of an excitation cycle for the alternator, measuring a second voltage across the first and second external contacts of the alternator regulator module during an OFF state of an excitation cycle for the alternator, deriving an average voltage value of the first and second voltage measurements, and deriving an offset value based at least partly on the derived average voltage value. The method further comprises measuring an instantaneous voltage across the first and second external contacts of the alternator regulator module, and configuring a control signal for regulating the output voltage of the alternator based at least partly on the instantaneous voltage measurement and the derived offset value.
