Each year, we’ve seen more of a focus on EVs at the annual PCIM Europe event, and 2022 was no exception with a range of exciting new developments that illustrate just how quickly the sector is innovating.
On May 18, state and local officials will celebrate the opening of a new, state‑of‑the‑art power module manufacturing facility. The world’s first ChiP (Converter housed in Package) fabrication facility, or “ChiP fab” enables scalable, automated, cost-effective manufacturing of power modules in the United States.
Renesas Electronics Corporation announced that it will present the first live demonstration of a microcontroller (MCU) based on the recently announced Arm Cortex-M85 processor. The demonstration will take place in the Renesas booth - Hall 1, Stand 234 (1-234) at the Embedded World 2022 Exhibition and Conference in Nuremburg Germany from June 21-24.
By the end of 2022, a fully-electric Mercedes-EQS will roll off a production line in Bangkok to mark another milestone in Thailand's remarkable journey from conventional automaking hub to regional frontrunner in electric vehicle (EV) production, according to an article published by the country's Board of Investment (BOI).
Researchers from ETH Zurich, Empa and the University of Zurich have developed a new material for an electronic component that can be used in a wider range of applications than its predecessors. Such components will help create electronic circuits that emulate the human brain and that are more efficient than conventional computers at performing machine-learning tasks.
Toyota Motor Corporation has developed batteries based on the concept of "safe, long service life, high-quality, good value for price, and high performance" so that customers can use them with peace of mind. This technology utilizing many years of electrified vehicle development as well as on-board parts and units have been used to create the O-Uchi Kyuden System, a home storage battery system.
Advanced Cell Engineering (ACE), a developer and licensor of next-generation high energy density battery cell technology, has filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its very large format (VLF) cell. The patent filing represents a key milestone in the company’s “Project Magnus,” in which ACE will finalize cell design and chemistry for a highly efficient, 1-meter cell-to-pack prismatic cell. This is ACE’s fourth patent application in the last six months.
With the global electric vehicle (EV) market projected to reach a value of $725.14 billion by 2026, there is increasing need to understand the performance, or State of Health (SOH), of batteries. Defining, measuring, and accessing battery SOH is a key step toward enhancing visibility in the battery supply chain, enabling circular business models, improving road safety, and breaking down the barriers to widespread primary and secondary EV market adoption.
Nano One Materials Corp., a clean technology innovator in battery materials, and BASF SE, a globally active chemical company with extensive experience in the development and manufacture of battery materials, announced they have signed a joint development agreement (JDA).
