Electric Trains and Locomotives
Avago Technologies provides several solutions for electric or diesel-electric powered trains and locomotives including inverters and motor controls that can use Avago IGBT gate drivers and isolation amplifiers.
Communication between the different control modules, displays, and operating devices within the train or locomotive occurs in an environment with electromagnetic interference (EMI). Applications within this type of noisy environment rely on the use of a Multifunction Vehicles Bus (MVB) and Avago optical transceivers are often used for the long link distances and resistance to an electromagneticfilled environment where the MVB operates.
