Riding Out Automotive Transients : Architecting Front End Power Conversion Stage for Automotive Off-Battery Loads
With rapidly expanding electronic content in latest generation of cars, there is an ever increasing need for power conversion from the car battery rail. The 12-V battery rail is subject to a variety of transients. This presents a unique challenge in terms of the power architecture for off-battery systems. This presentation introduces the different types of transients that occur in automotive battery rails, the causes of those transients, and the standards and specifications defining the test conditions for those transients.
This section presents the different methods of protecting the electronic loads connected to the automotive battery rail in the event of accidental reverse battery connection. The methods covered include:
- Schottky diode
- PFET + discretes
- Smart diode + NFET
