Smart power switches offer improved efficiency & miniaturisation

Smart power switches offer improved efficiency & miniaturisation
Car makers want in-vehicle electronic systems to provide a large number of energy-efficient functions in as little space as possible. Infineon supports this trend with its new power IC manufacturing technology SMART7. Infineon designed it specifically for automotive applications such as body control modules or power distribution centres. SMART7 power ICs drive, diagnose and protect loads in applications like heating, power distribution, air-conditioning, exterior and interior lighting, seat and mirror adjustment.

AEC-Q200 fuses offer reliable EV battery protection

AEC-Q200 fuses offer reliable EV battery protection
Fossil fuels are limited in availability. And when they are burned, harmful exhaust gases are generated. The fact that the future belongs to the electric vehicle is now out of question. Schurter comes into play, fusing electronics and battery cells. Automobiles are becoming stronger, safer, more comfortable, and therefore also heavier. In order to accelerate an electric vehicle adequately, a lot of energy is needed. This is achieved by interconnecting small battery cells – size around 4VDC / 3200mAh – in parallel and in series.
