A new Bosch start-stop system stops the engine when the vehicle is traveling at speed, helping to reduce fuel consumption by 10 percent.
ON Semiconductor introduced two new AEC-Qualified ICs which, thanks to their wide input voltage range and extensive operational temperature range, are highly optimized for automotive powertrain and in-cabin deployment.
The ASM Pneumatics model library, which will become part of the dSPACE Automotive Simulation Models (ASM) product family, enables realistic brake simulation for commercial vehicles, and comfort functions for passenger vehicles.
HELLA has signed a product evaluation contract with Nickel-Zinc (NiZn) battery developer PowerGenix and will conduct real-world vehicle tests to evaluate the ability of NiZN batteries to meet the high-power requirements of 48-volt mild hybrid systems, while also reducing overall system complexity and cost.
STMicroelectronics’ TDA7802 automotive start/stop-compatible audio power amplifier is said to combine the performance and cost benefits of a digital input with the simplicity and enhanced efficiency of analog class SB-I amplification. It’s the first such device available for use in start/stop applications, according to the company.
Scientists from GE and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) are collaborating to develop a water-based, flow battery for electric vehicles that could sell for one-fourth the price of car batteries available today and power an electric vehicle for 240 miles or more.
PowerGenix announced that its batteries have achieved certification by China National Laboratory’s Tianjin Automotive Test Center.
Tianjin Automotive Test Center completed a comprehensive test matrix covering all aspects of advanced micro-hybrid vehicles to validate NiZn’s potential performance improvements.
Battery Cell Voltage Measurement and Balancing system performs high-precision measurement and control of cell voltages in Li-ion batteries.
New rapid control prototyping (RCP) offerings from dSPACE are said to simplify the development of critical battery management algorithms by enabling precise, fast measurement and control of cell voltages for modern Li-ion batteries.
