Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)

Key Products
Selective catalytic reduction (SCR) is a chemical process converting nitrogen oxides (NOx) into diatomic nitrogen and water as well as a small amount of carbon dioxide. This process is facilitated by the addition of automotive-grade urea – known as Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) or commercial brands like AdBlue and Bluetech – to convert hazardous NOx emissions from diesel engines into harmless nitrogen and water.

How the SCR block works

The SCR block controls a pump that draws DEF from its tank and injects it, with an appropriate dosing valve, into the diesel exhaust gases. To optimize fuel efficiency, a gas sensor is located after the catalytic reduction process and its information is fed to the diesel engine ECU that combines this information with the engine status and give to the SCR unit accurate information regarding the right amount of DEF liquid to release.

Our products and solutions

We have a range of three-phase gate drivers and Power MOSFETs for the commonly used brushless DC (BLDC) motors, as well as SPC5 32-bit microcontrollers and dedicated power management ICs with voltage regulators and CAN and LIN Interface ICs to simplify the design of high-efficiency solutions.
