Power Distribution: Relay and Fuse Replacement Guide by Infineon

  Knowledge

One of the major trends shaping power distribution in today’s cars is the replacement of relays and fuses with semiconductors. But this is not as straightforward as it sounds. Modern cars feature numerous advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). All safety-critical ADAS applications must be designed for high availability. Automated driving functions are even more challenging to implement as these...

Automotive motor system IC - A new source of power for automotive aids

  Knowledge

Everywhere you look, cars have little devices here and there to make the driving experience more comfortable—window regulators, sunroof controllers, seat adjusters, trunk door mechanisms, automated front-lighting systems and various flaps, fins, pumps and fans. The broadness of this field is also apparent in the diversity of electrical auxiliary motors. This means that drive solutions need to be scalable...

Easy mounting: Snap-in capacitors of the Samwha JR series in the Rutronik portfolio

  Knowledge

Solid anchoring and long service life: the JR series is an upgrade of the HF series, which had a service life of 5,000 hours. The snap-in capacitors of the JR now convince with a 100 percent increase in service life up to 10,000 hours - currently the highest service life in the Samwha product range. They are available at www.rutronik24.com.
