Braking Systems

Brakes are some of the most crucial safety components in automobiles. Used to slow a vehicle’s momentum before parking and avoid collisions and accidents, braking systems have undergone rapid development throughout the years. Automobile brakes have evolved from the mechanical drum brakes of the early 19th century to hydraulic brakes, disc brakes, and recently, electronic braking systems that could render previous designs obsolete in the long run.

Our wide range of safe, robust, automotive-qualified motor driver ICs, power management ICs, and Hall-effect sensor ICs enable next-generation braking systems.

We have decades of experience designing to the highest level of automotive standards. All our braking solutions are designed to the ISO 26262 standard, and engineering support is available to help ensure system-level safety goals are met. Many or our devices, including power management ICs and BLDC gate drivers, have industry-leading diagnostic and verification features to make designing ASIL D systems as easy as possible.
