Automotive Solutions – Electronics

Electronic components and devices are growing in number and importance in today’s and tomorrow’s automotives. Since they are covering essential functions in regard to safety, car manufacturers need to make sure that their full visibility and functionality is guaranteed at all times. Asahi Kasei’s functional fibers offers solutions to these challenges.

PULSHUT™ – The Solution To Your EMC/EMI Problems

Electronic components and devices are growing in number and importance in today’s and tomorrow’s automotives. Since they are covering essential functions in regard to safety, car manufacturers need to make sure that their full functionality is guaranteed at all times. Protecting the electronic components from electromagnetical interferences is one key to achieve this.

Based on a non-woven fabric, PULSHUT™ absorbs high-frequency electromagnetic noise emitted from electronic equipment, thereby solving issues with electromagnetic compatibility or electromagnetic interferences as a single solution.

Due to its high flexibility it can be applied to various components. Application examples include attaching it to uneven surfaces or around cables.

These days, electromagnetic noise emitted from USB 3.0 is known to interfere with GPS systems. Attaching PULSHUT™ to an antenna can improve the sensitivity of the antenna and allow it to effectively capture weak GPS signals. PULSHUT™ absorbs a wide range of electromagnetic waves with a frequency of 1GHz or higher.

WGF™ – Improved Visibility And Longevity Of HUDs

If you have a mirrorless digital camera, WGF is probably inside. This film-based wire grid polarizer material is now finding its way into automotive head-up displays and driver monitoring systems, adding significantly to their heat durability and improving the overall visibility.

Recently, the number of HUD-equipped cars has been increasing. With the field of vision becoming wider, the HUDs heat durability can pose an issue. With WGF in the HUD’s optical path the impact of sunlight and other lights can be decreased significantly.

In addition to having excellent polarization properties in a wide wavelength range, this polarizing film is characterized by both easy workability (easy lamination, bending, profile cut, etc.) and excellent heat resistance stability.

Application fields for WGF include HUDs, driver monitoring systems (DMS), IR sensors, head-mounted displays (HMD) or digital camera viewfinders, etc.
