Sakichi Toyoda, the founder of Toyota Industries Corporation, possessed a strong ambition to contribute to society from his days as a youth. He had devoted his 63-year-long life to invention.
The DC-DC converter for electrified vehicle converts the high voltage from the main battery to the low voltage required for the auxiliary battery and devices.
The development of a new, high heat-dissipation thick copper substrate has resulted in a smaller, more light weighted DC-DC Converter. Toyota Industries' DC-DC Converters has been installed to various customers' electrified vehicles.
When the engine restarts, the voltage supplied from the auxiliary battery momentarily drops. The DC-DC Converter for stop/start system supplies stable voltage in order to protect on-board devices such as the audio system, navigation system, and meters against this voltage drop.
