Application Note Overview

Market demand is continuously driving the development of electric vehicles. The wide range of electronic devices and systems is placing ever-greater requirements on the test equipment. Where this technology area used to be limited to electronic ignition systems, navigation systems, adaptive cruise control, etc., it now also involves more powerful, high-energy conversion systems and powertrains. Because of this, the automotive industry has a wide range of test standards for electronic components and systems on a global basis.

The reliable operation of electronic systems in the automotive industry has life safety implications. These standards, therefore, specify the test conditions that must be fulfilled in order to achieve compliance. In this application note from EA Elektro-Automatik, you'll learn how power electronics are adapting to these new conditions.
