(MENAFN- Markets Research Reports)
An electric brake booster , also known as an electric vacuum pump or electric brake assist, is a device used in automotive braking systems to provide power assistance to the braking system. It is designed to enhance the performance and efficiency of the braking system, particularly in vehicles equipped with hybrid or electric powertrains.

In traditional braking systems, vacuum generated by the engine is used to provide power assistance to the brake booster. However, in hybrid or electric vehicles, the absence of a traditional internal combustion engine limits the availability of vacuum. This is where an electric brake booster comes into play.
An electric brake booster utilizes an electric pump to generate vacuum or provide direct power assistance to the brake master cylinder. The pump is typically driven by an electric motor and can be activated when the brake pedal is depressed or in response to certain vehicle conditions.
The brake booster assists in reducing the amount of effort required to operate the brakes, making braking more responsive and efficient. It can improve braking performance in various situations, such as emergency stops or when regenerative braking in hybrid or electric vehicles is insufficient.
The specific design and implementation of electric brake boosters can vary among vehicle manufacturers. Some systems may integrate the electric booster with other safety and driver-assist features, such as electronic stability control or adaptive cruise control, to enhance overall braking performance and vehicle safety.
It's worth noting that while electric brake boosters are becoming more common in hybrid and electric vehicles, traditional vacuum-assisted brake boosters are still widely used in vehicles with internal combustion engines.
