Infineon switches help reduce emissions

Infineon TLE9104SH four-channel low-side switch

Infineon Technologies has launched the latest member of its Flex multichannel low-side switches family that will help reduce fuel consumption and thus CO2 emissions in automotive powertrain applications.

The TLE9104SH is a smart four-channel low-side switch for currents up to 5A DC in 12V systems. This allows controlling actuators such as high-precision port fuel injectors, high-energy valves or high-current relays in engine management, transmission control and battery management systems.
