White Paper Overview

With the increased push to reduce the use of fossil fuels and their associated emissions for a sustainable future, Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) or xEVs will experience unprecedented acceptance and growth over the next few years. With increased electrification, more data becomes available to be sensed and measured which increases the need for data-logging. Although there are traditional non-volatile memory technologies like EEPROM and Flash for data-logging, F-RAM (Ferroelectric Random Access Memory, also F-RAM or FeRAM) with its unique technology benefits of zero-delay writes, low switching energy, virtually infinite endurance, and long data retention, is positioned to be the data-logging memory technology of choice for battery management systems, inverters and more in xEVs. This whitepaper will explore the key automotive xEV applications and their requirements, details on various data-logging memory technologies and specific F-RAM solutions to address the needs of automotive applications.
