Development of Real-Time Battery Models for HIL testing of Battery Management Systems
Posted in White Papers, Electronics on Tuesday, 18 August 2015
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.
Delivering Roadworthy Designs: Automotive Electronics Circuit Protection Overview, Applications & Standards
Posted in On-Demand Webinars, Electronics on Monday, 17 August 2015
Today’s automotive designs include nearly 100 microprocessors; that number is expected to double in five years. And from in-dash displays to connected technologies to safety systems, all on-board electronics require circuit protection designed-in.
How to Avoid PCB Re-spins when IC’s Change or are Obsoleted
Posted in On-Demand Webinars, Electronics on Friday, 14 August 2015
Working with printed circuit boards (PCBs) for sophisticated military, aerospace, or medical systems can be a frustrating – and expensive – exercise, particularly when the customer requests “a simple upgrade” or modification after the boards have been made or after deployment. Thanks to Murphy’s Law, these “simple upgrades” are never as simple as they should be. Aries has developed a unique solution that can save you from having to re-spin your PCB due to IC obsolescence or package change.
What is Wiring Synthesis?
Posted in White Papers, Electronics, Electronics & Computers on Tuesday, 28 July 2015
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
Posted in White Papers, Electronics, Electronics & Computers on Tuesday, 28 July 2015
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
Posted in White Papers, Electronics, Electronics & Computers on Tuesday, 28 July 2015
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.
Electropolishing for Hydraulics and Pneumatics
Posted in White Papers, Electronics, Coatings & Adhesives on Monday, 27 July 2015
Manufacturing components for the hydraulic and pneumatic industries often involve creating the ideal surface finish: neither too rough nor too smooth. When it comes to surface finish, electropolishing can help manufacturers walk that fine line and achieve the ultimate in function.
