As demand for electric vehicles continues to increase, so does the demand for improved performance, faster charging time, increased range, and longer battery life, along with improved safety. These demands drive rapid technological advancements in EV battery designs, especially for high voltages like 400V or 800V. As batteries become more powerful and complex, more sophisticated BMS architectures are needed to ensure safety and reliability of EVs. Therefore, the ability to enable ASIL D functional safety values from the hardware all the way into the application layer software is critical.
This 60-minute Webinar will outline performance and functional safety capabilities with HVBMS and AUTOSAR software to accelerate automotive development.
