HEV, EV, Powertrain

The automotive industry is in motion, as the powertrain transitions from conventional fuels to hybrid and full electric. The electrification of critical functions demands reliable solutions to generate, distribute and control high power, through 48V DC/DC conversion to full electric features. Microchip has the right technology to enable the powertrain of today and tomorrow.

When you work with Microchip you get access to best-in-class technology which is supported by a world-class level of domain expertise. From power conversion to motor drive, Microchip understands how to sense and control every aspect of the Electric Vehicle (EV) and Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) powertrain.

e-Mobility

Powertrain-EH-HEV

Electro Mobility (e-Mobility) changes the way people move and define transportation. e-Mobility starts with electric vehicles, such as personal mini transporters, scooters, bicycles, cars, agricultural vehicles, commercial vehicles and drones, and includes capabilities such as charging infrastructure, intelligent routing and payment systems. There are many challenges in developing e-Mobility solutions and minimizing electric power losses while intelligently managing power conversion are vital capabilities for successful companies in this market.

Microchip can help you manage the change from conventional combustion engines driven vehicles to new e-Mobility solutions. Our flexible solutions across analog, connectivity, microcontroller, sensor and power allow you to address the rigorous requirements of e-Mobility while our reference designs help jump-start product development. Innovate with Microchip’s flexible solutions and thrive with the e-Mobility evolution.
