Reach the next level in performance and safety
As part of the drivetrain in 4-wheel-drive systems (4WD) and all-wheel-drive systems (AWD), a transfer case is used to distribute power between the front and the rear axle. In some cars, a transfer case can adapt to the driving conditions, such as when a car travels off-road (active transfer case.) Here, it helps reduce fuel consumption and improve the driving dynamics of the car.

Designing to market needs
In the rapidly evolving automotive market, there are a growing number of challenges transfer case designs must overcome today to meet car manufacturers and consumers expectations. These range from the rising demand for increasing activation cycles over the system’s lifetime, to the trend towards BLDCs for their longevity and dynamic performance, to greater security and functional safety requirements. That’s why successful transfer case designs use high-quality components that:
- Are ISO 26262 compliant
- Support secure communication and operation at high temperatures
- Can drive BLDCs
By sourcing semiconductor components and solutions that tick all the boxes, you can ensure your design overcomes all challenges and is successful on the market.
