March 22, 2024 by Vicor
Topics Covered
  • Optimizing 12V applications in a 48V power delivery network
  • Elimination of low-voltage batteries
  • Creating vehicle to charger compatibility
  • The race to automotive electrification: what it takes to win
  • Preparing the way ahead for a compatible EV infrastructure

eBook Overview

While sales for both battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) are accelerating rapidly, there are other significant changes too. Vehicle electrical subsystem power loads have grown over 20x in recent years – driving interest in 48V systems that efficiently handle exponentially increased power demand while supporting 12V legacy systems. OEMs must respond with power delivery networks (PDNs) that match fluctuating market conditions. This eBook from Vicor shows that the best way to meet these objectives is to adopt a modular approach using compact, efficient, lightweight modules with high power density.
