Development of Real-Time Battery Models for HIL testing of Battery Management Systems

The explosion in the use of electronic devices, electrified vehicles and decentralized power utilities has driven demand for rechargeable batteries. This has led to a significant increase in research investment into battery technologies to address challenges including thermal stability and battery life extension. This whitepaper outlines how such challenges can be overcome in the development of a Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) testing system for the Battery Management Systems (BMS) used in electrical energy storage products.

Coming Soon - How to Avoid PCB Re-spins when IC’s Change or are Obsoleted

It can get ugly out there; you have your expensive military, aerospace, or medical system finalized and deployed and then, someone wants or requires an “upgrade”. Oftentimes it’s simple; however other times the complexity involved can make “Mr. Murphy” blush.

Magnetics Design: Specification, Performance & Economics

An informative white paper from Datatronics Romoland, Inc., provides a discussion of the design, development and delivery of affordable magnetic components. The design development process begins once performance requirements are specified. Upon design approval, the procurement of materials for a prototype build is initiated. During this stage, specifications are not final and options remain open for cost-effective production. Specifications must be reviewed and design trade-offs evaluated to ensure that the technical requirements are economically attainable with consideration given to performance and tolerance in relation to affordable cost.

What is Wiring Synthesis?

Wiring synthesis is a transformative technology for vehicle wiring design. Using principles of Model Driven Systems Engineering (MDSE), wiring synthesis automatically generates detailed vehicle wiring design data from simpler, higher level inputs. Totally different from traditional wire routing, wiring synthesis addresses key domain problems such as high frequency design change, arduous configuration management, design quality and verification, and development cost and cycle time. Supported by ten years of software development, major automotive OEMs and suppliers in Europe, USA and Asia have now applied wiring synthesis technology with great success. As electrical complexity continues to grow, wiring synthesis will become the only practical way to design automotive electrical systems.

Optimizing Automotive Wiring Designs Using Engineering Design Automation

Currently, most methods for optimizing an Electrical Distribution System employ unsophisticated and manual spreadsheet tools. Any detailed feedback on critical metrics such as cost or weight typically relies on another organization and requires weeks or months. The resulting EDS is inevitably sub-optimized, not due to a lack of engineering ability, but rather the tools available. To ensure that the EDS design is optimized from the outset, the design environment itself must be enhanced. This paper will discuss the four key requirements for an EDA system along with the flow implications using examples from the Mentor Graphics Capital suite.

Technology To Speed Wire Harness New Product Introduction

The speed with which wire harness makers can bring new or changed designs into production is a key business differentiator. Up until now, the complex sequence of tasks necessary to accomplish such a feat was poorly supported by COTS software. A robust COTS solution from Mentor Graphics is now available. This paper focuses on a set of manufacturing disciplines and describes key “building blocks” which underpin Mentor’s robust software solution for harness wire manufacturers. The Mentor approach protects company IP, reduces manufacturing engineering costs, improves process quality, and provides early and accurate visibility of gross margins. More importantly, it removes critical path bottlenecks to new product introduction.
