This paper examines the benefits of using an integrated powertrain solution to speed adoption of electric vehicles through power electronics.

Revolutionize EV battery management with our wireless BMS solution

A wireless battery management system (BMS) can improve reliability and design flexibility while reducing system cost due to the elimination of cables and connectors. However, wireless BMS comes with challenges such as meeting ASIL D functional safety compliance.

With our TÜV SÜD-assessed functional safety concept and proprietary wireless protocol – an industry-first enabling the best network availability – you are now able to build the world’s most reliable and efficient electric vehicles.

This white paper examines design considerations for wired and wireless battery management systems in electric vehicles (EVs).

This paper explores the unique functional safety challenges encountered when designing a wireless battery management system.

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.
