Electric brake booster
Demands for greater energy efficiency create a need for a more flexible approach to braking systems. Such as the electric brake booster that’s specially designed for next generation brakes common to hybrid and electric cars. When engineering your electric brake booster application, what counts is having the right components available at the right time. Infineon can deliver it all – and offers full-spectrum safety support and expertise.

- Next-generation drivetrains, such as hybrid and electric vehicles and even today’s highly efficient combustion engines, require a new braking assistance system
- Current systems are mainly dependent on vacuums generated by the combustion engine or vacuum pumps, which use up electrical energy as well as package space under the hood and are not flexible enough for the driver assistance systems of tomorrow
- The above illustration shows the new concept of a fully electric brake booster, incorporating vehicle stability control functionality with an efficient and flexible design
