According To Bosch, Future Design Challenges for Ignition Coils Will Focus On Developing Even Smaller Units
Dublin (PRWEB) September 25, 2006
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c42420) has announced the addition of Global Market Review of Ignition Systems Forecasts to 2012 to their offering.
Ignition system technology has taken a number of twists and turns over the past 50 years. In the 1940s and 1950s, the ignition unit consisted of a coil and distributor that delivered the voltage generated by the ignition coil to the ignition plugs. By the early 1980s, the integrated ignition assembly appeared, combining the distributor, ignition coil and driving circuit (igniter).
During the mid-1980s, distributor-less ignition appeared, and by the 1990s, the stick coil began to appear featuring a smaller igniter.
According to Bosch, future design challenges for ignition coils will focus on developing even smaller units, while continuing to meet extremely high insulation and temperature requirements, and incorporating electronic circuits.
