It's electrifying! Demand for EVs keeps on rising

It's electrifying! Demand for EVs keeps on rising
The car manufacturing industry is booming, with the demand for electric vehicles rising rapidly. This has had a knock-on effect on battery producers, as batteries – alongside the electric motor – are the heart of E-cars. The battery accounts for between roughly 30 and 40% of the value added in purely electric vehicles. Around the world, new factories are being built and vehicle manufacturers as well as battery producers are looking for automation.

Step down power supply masters common automotive challenges

Step down power supply masters common automotive challenges
  A new DC/DC converter from ROHM Semiconductor has been announced named BD9V100MUF-C. It features a built-in MOSFET that can generate output voltages of just 3.3 or 5V (minimum 2.5V) from input voltages up to 60V at a switching frequency of 2MHz.

Railway DC/DC converters feature ultra wide input range

Railway DC/DC converters feature ultra wide input range
When planning a universally applicable railway device typically at least three versions of the same design are necessary to cover all standard supply voltages in railway vehicles ranging from a nominal 24-110VDC. This causes additional complications, which can be avoided by using RECOM’s newly developed DC/DC railway converters with ultra-wide input voltage, which allow for all-in-one solutions.

App prevents the pain of non-starts this winter

App prevents the pain of non-starts this winter
During the cold winter a dead battery is one of the most common reasons for roadside assistance, but a clever smartphone app supported by a self-installed plug-in device from Smartdriverclub, the connected car service, can help motorists avoid a nasty shock when they switch on the ignition. The smartphone app – Viewpoint – will send an alert to the motorist if it detects the battery charge is running low so that they can get the battery recharged or replaced, saving the stress of getting the problem fixed without any warning.

Synchronous step-down switching regulator offers 94% efficiency

Synchronous step-down switching regulator offers 94% efficiency
A dual 4A, 42V input synchronous step-down switching regulator has been announced by Analog Devices, which recently acquired Linear Technology. The LT8650S's Silent Switcher2 architecture uses four internal input capacitors as well as two internal BST and a single INTVCC capacitor to minimise the area of the hot loops. Combined with well controlled switching edges and an internal construction using copper pillars in lieu of bond wires and an integral ground plane, the LT8650S’s design reduces EMI emissions.
