Renesas provides an efficient power distribution network solution based on Intelligent Power Device (IPD) technologies. The intelligent protection and diagnostic functions of the IPDs raise the safety level over mechanical relays. Together with their small size and weight, IPDs are the key enabler to building advanced automotive power distribution networks with cable harness optimization and functional safety implementation. The battery power is split into multiple parallel lines providing a protected and distributed power supply into the network. This forms the basis of creating any type of hierarchical architecture, enabling further nesting to achieve the desired safety level through redundancy.
Renesas' complementary automotive product portfolios of Analog + Power + Embedded Processing + Connectivity work together to deliver comprehensive solutions. Our product experts have developed "Winning Combinations," compelling product combinations that help our customers accelerate their designs and get to market faster.
