Electrification & Powertrain

Electric vehicles currently represent only 2% of worldwide vehicle sales, but over the next decade, vehicle electrification is expected to increase over 15×. The rapid adoption of vehicle electrification is fueled by growing consumer demand for greener transportation options and by regulations requiring carbon emission reductions and improved fuel efficiency. Every major car manufacturer has responded to these twin pressures with plans to release at least one electric vehicle in the coming years.

The EV market continues to be driven by a demand for longer range vehicles, improved functional safety, and decreased charge times and cost. Analog Devices’ breakthrough solutions are addressing energy storage systems, alternative powertrain types, and vehicle electrification subsystems. ADI makes systems smaller, lighter, and more efficient without compromising performance by providing solutions for Battery Management, High Voltage Isolation, Battery Formation & Test, Position Speed Sense, and Current Sensing.

In 2019, Analog Devices’ BMS products saved 60 million tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere and will continue to reduce CO2 vehicle emissions by 30% year over year. To put that into perspective, 60 million tons of CO2 is equivalent to approximately 70 million acres of mature forest. Analog Devices is fully dedicated to fostering a sustainable future by delivering advanced vehicle electrification technology.

Wireless Battery Management Systems

Analog Devices' wireless battery management systems (wBMS) eliminate the mechanical challenges and costs of traditional wired harness systems, and meet the industry’s most stringent safety requirements, while providing unprecedented flexibility for OEMs to scale their electrified vehicle fleets. Our systems enable maximum energy use per cell, resulting in more miles per charge, and they support safe and sustainable zero-cobalt battery chemistries, such as lithium iron phosphate (LFP).

Extended Range

Extended Range and the ADI Battery Management System

With up to 40% of the sticker price of an electric vehicle attributed to the battery, performance and battery life are now considered major factors in electric vehicle (EV) brand success. Analog Devices designs the industry's most accurate battery management system (BMS). As a direct result, customers can expect to see longer battery life and 20% more miles per charge than the competition.

How BMS impacts vehicle electrification

Scaling Electric Vehicle

Scaling Electric Vehicle Production Requires Advanced Battery Formation and Test Systems

The complex battery formation and test (BFT) process accounts for up to 20% of an EV's battery cost and is extremely time-consuming, taking as many as two days to complete. A significant bottleneck prevents battery manufacturing from achieving greater throughput that will lower the overall cost to produce batteries.
