The choice of power semiconductor components in automotive design always comes down to a trade-off between power, robustness, and cost. Learn about the technology behind these characteristics and how the best decision can be made.
In electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, the Li-ion battery is one of the biggest cost factors. Therefore, its capacity must be fully exploited. Battery management systems play an essential role as the central element for monitoring and control. Infineon has now developed a new device for this purpose.
