Unlock the benefits of 48-V systems

Electrification increases power demands, and 12- to 48-V and 48-V to high-voltage architectures increase the available power to meet those demands. Introducing a 48-V power supply, however, creates new and challenging design requirements, particularly the accurate monitoring and protection of the 48-V battery and achieving Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL)-D certification while managing cost at scale. Our analog and embedded processing products are up for the challenge. With wide-input-voltage DC/DC converters and brushless DC motor drivers that enable safety at high levels of power density; a portfolio of highly accurate sensing products; and a broad selection of high-performance, low-power microcontrollers that simplify the development process, we can help solve all of your 48-V design challenges. Explore our 48-V battery management system, 48-V to 12-V bidirectional DC/DC converter and starter/generator resources.
