Today, a strong trend towards electromobility can be seen on the automotive market. Initially, hybrid vehicles (HEVs) emerged that had both a combustion engine and an additional supporting electric drive helping to reduce fuel consumption and thus emissions. Now, pure electric cars (EVs) with an adequate range have also arrived on the mass market.
In addition to common vehicle sensor technology, battery management, rotor position detection and parklock actuator control are of particular importance here. TDK offers magnetic-field sensors that are precisely tailored to these applications.
