As of current, in APAC, particularly China, power window-lift for both passenger door modules and sunroof modules are gaining strong popularity.
The same window anti-pinch functionality also applies to sunroof modules which shares the same window-lift mechanism as the normal door window.
Other benefits that Tier 1 suppliers of the window-lift ECU may find in adopting a high integrated ePower solution over a discrete solution, are higher reliability due to fewer components, better inventory management and higher manufacturing assembly efficiency.
Such increased reinforcement and added components of the airbag function greatly drive the need to achieve a smaller footprint for the door / window-lift electronic control unit (ECU).
This article discusses the use of the embedded power (ePower) TLE7810G device from Infineon to address the window-lift application.
This is because the driver may turn off the engine while still putting the ignition key at the battery-on position, and the window-lift and anti-pinch functionality still have to work, and ideally draining as little current as possible.
The chip also draws very low quiescent current, an important criteria for today's window-lift / door modules.
