The Importance of Electronic Components for the Automotive Industry
Vehicles of today are more than just vital pieces of gear used to transport people from point A to point B. They also have a variety of gadgets that boost the vehicle’s quality, safety, comfort, and accessibility. These intelligent characteristics are created via electrical engineering and dependable, precise electronic components.
Mechanical and electrical engineering is the automobile. The majority of modern cars that leave the factory floor are intelligent automobiles. There are well over 125 microcontrollers in the typical automobile.
The degree of technology seen in today’s cars is developing quickly. Reliable electronic AEC-Q200 components are necessary for engineering needs. Here are a few options made possible by the reliable and accurate electrical components used in automotive design and production:
Onboard computers continually monitor vehicle performance and the adjacent environment. Drivers can receive notifications from sensors about oil levels, tire pressure, and engine status issues. In addition, technicians frequently use diagnostic electronics to interface with the computerized system of the car. This enables mechanics to discover any vehicle difficulties.
Several features protect your on-road driving experience. Backup sensors, which warn the driver of oncoming impediments when they are in reverse, are among the most popular. Road sensors alert the driver when the road is slippery from heavy rain or ice. To avoid collisions with unobserved vehicles, sensors are commonly installed in blind areas of moving cars. Parents may install sensors in the automobiles of their young drivers to prevent them from operating the vehicle while using a mobile device, so avoiding texting while driving is one of the leading causes of deadly car accidents in the modern era.
Undoubtedly, today’s automobiles are a member of the Internet of Things (IoT). As technology develops, drivers can unlock their cars remotely, get in touch with driver assistance or emergency services, plan their trip using GPS connections, remote start, and more.
Drivers may now wirelessly connect their smartphones to the in-car entertainment system to listen to their favorite podcasts or song playlists while driving. In addition, video displays allow drivers to play DVDs, Blu-ray, and digital films to entertain passengers in the backseat.
Yageo’s Stance in the Automotive Industry
The ever-increasing use of electronics in the automotive environment necessitates using a wide range of passive components, all of which must have superior dependability and sophisticated product features.
Defined systems like engine management, traction control, transmission, temperature controls, lighting, and ABS are undergoing significant changes. Still, they so are comparatively recent systems like car-to-car communications, automated driving, self-steering, and self-parking, which require more sensors and capacitors. Therefore, it is necessary to maximize the performance of passive components to achieve deeper integration within the automobile environment.
With this information, YAGEO has released a new line of automotive-qualified MLCC and R Chip parts for use in existing designs and as a forerunner to emerging trends.
The Superior Qualifications of The new MLCC and R Chips
The new MLCC and R Chips are specifically created to satisfy the following requirements:
- AEC-Q200 compliant
- Available in full PPAP
- ability to work well even in the most challenging circumstances
- TS 16949 certification for large-scale production
The NPO and X7R temperature characteristics are available in YAGEO’s AC Automotive Series of MLCC capacitors. The AC Automotive series has increased mechanical qualities and outstanding long-term durability because of the unique product structure, carefully chosen raw materials, and specialized mass manufacturing environment. The devices needed for infotainment and comfort and convenience operations are covered by this new series, either as individual components or as parts of an array.
The go-to option for most automotive applications has been the conventional AC series of R Chip Thick Film technology, offered in case sizes ranging from 0201 to 2512.
In safety systems where sulfur may be a problem, only a properly designed solution made with carefully chosen materials can withstand the demands of extreme environmental conditions. The AAR Chip series from YAGEO is the perfect option.
High-precision resistors operating in humid environments must adhere to the highest reliability requirements. YAGEO’s R Chip Thin Film AT solutions are the ideal option for ABS, ECU, power steering, and encapsulate circuits.
The third factor to consider when creating specialized solutions comes from the ongoing need for more circuitry and functionality without growing in size in the automobile sector. The answer provided by YAGEO is double and triple power resistors, which enable tiny sizes without sacrificing product performance.
Leaded resistors are still crucial parts of the electronic control unit, even if SMD resistors predominate on the PCB because they combine dependability, power dissipation, and resilience. Resistors are utilized in electronics and comfort and convenience designs. Flame-proof resistors (FMP Series) and precision metal film resistors (MFP Series) are used. The AHA series for metal resistors, used in automobile signal lights, is also offered by YAGEO.
YAGEO ceramic patch/chip antennae and PCB antennas offer wireless capabilities to electronics and telematic systems in addition to the resistance and capacitors, enhancing drivers’ driving experience and safety.
