Electronics for hybrid-electric vehicles
Freescale Semiconductor, Austin, Tex., will collaborate with Fuji Electric Systems Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Fuji Electric Holdings Co. Ltd., to provide insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) technology and products for hybrid electric and electric vehicles (HEV and EV). Freescale will add high-power IGBT products for electronic powertrain applications.
Freescale will offer EV-system components, including microcontrollers, analog gate drivers, battery monitoring ICs, power IGBTs and modeling/simulation tools, and software components/tools for motor-control development.
Fuji Electric provides solutions for energy and the environment.
