Automotive-qualified power inductors are robust & efficient

Automotive-qualified power inductors are robust & efficient
Targeting LED driver and braking control system applications in the automotive market, TT Electronics announces the HA78 series of power inductors. The inductors are suited for high power density applications where size is critical and particularly where high-efficiency DC/DC converters are using high switching frequencies to 3Mhz as well as EMI and low pass DC filters.

Bus KERS system to be rolled-out in 2016

Bus KERS system to be rolled-out in 2016
A trial, conducted by bus operator Arriva, has recently been completed on the Wrightbus StreetLite midi bus which is fitted with the Flybrid mechanical kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) from Torotrak. The trial was conducted on a standard bus route in Gillingham, Kent from March last year.

The first dedicated analogue ICs for motorcycle ABS

The first dedicated analogue ICs for motorcycle ABS
The industry’s first highly integrated, dedicated ICs specifically engineered for motorcycle and scooter applications, the SB0400 and SB0401 ABS controllers have been introduced by Freescale Semiconductor. ECU manufacturers no longer need to rely on much larger ABS ICs developed for automobiles and can realise dramatic savings in cost, weight and space with advanced analogue parts designed specifically for motorcycles and scooters.

90% of heavy industrial EVs to use regenerative braking by 2024

Energy harvesting is increasingly used in the tiniest electronic components right up to multiple KW lift and swingarm braking on huge construction vehicles where 1.5 KW thermoelectric harvesting is planned next. However, electrodynamics and photovoltaics are most popular so far, increasingly in combination, and application in vehicles is of increasing importance. The recently updated IDTechEx report "Energy Harvesting/Regeneration for Electric Vehicles Land, Water & Air 2014-2024" finds that 90% of heavy industrial electric vehicles will use regenerative braking by 2024 to charge traction batteries.

Bosch ABS is fitted on over one million motorcycles

Bosch ABS is fitted on over one million motorcycles
In Tochigi, Japan, the one-millionth Bosch safety system has now come off the production line. The Bosch ABS antilock braking system significantly improves two wheeled safety by stopping the wheels from locking up. Currently on its new flagship Generation 9, Bosch offers the right system for any motorbike: from the front-wheel ABS for mass markets to the MSC motorcycle stability control.
