The roots of the APEC conference go back to 1975, when a private company put on POWERCON, a show dedicated to the working engineer. When that show ended in 1984, it was replaced by a hodgepodge of tech conferences, but few dedicated to...
USB ports in automotive charging applications must fit inside small spaces without overheating—a problem exacerbated when there are two ports. This automotive-grade dual-port charger solution overcomes those challenges.
Chargers and power converters in EVs often require bidirectional power flow to harvest excess energy. Can wide-bandgap devices add speed and efficiency?
Targeting low-end motor-control applications, these driver solutions replace relays with MOSFETs to suppress cost.
Compliant with the Qi standard, the solution fosters seamless infotainment operation via device authentication.
In the future, EVs will interact with the power grid to determine the optimal time for charging. A communications standard is the first step.
To help reduce EV battery cost, tight partnerships between battery manufacturers and suppliers are crucial—suppliers must deliver reliable formation/test solutions that enable manufacturers’ systems to achieve new levels of efficiency.
The AAA study blames battery characteristics and using the HVAC system to heat the inside of the vehicle for the loss of driving range.
