|Webinar: From Cold Crank to Load Dump - A Primer on Automotive Transients||
The modern vehicle is packed to the gills with sophisticated electronics, all of which must thrive in a dynamic environment of extreme highs and lows. This applies not only to temperature ranges, but also supply voltages — in particular, the 12V or 24V primary supply that delivers power to myriad subsystems can surge by several times its nominal range (load dump), plummet to near depletion (cold crank), or even end up topsy-turvy (negative)!
