An On-Board Charger (OBC) uses the AC current from a charging station or from household power to charge the batteries in a plug-in electric vehicle or hybrid-electric vehicle. To charge the batteries from AC power, the OBC performs the power factor correction (PFC) function followed by a DC/DC conversion to efficiently charge to the required voltage level for the battery.
With our combination of automotive-grade components for digital, analog, connectivity and power, we offer what you need to develop cost-effective and energy-efficient embedded control solutions for on-board charging.
The Automotive Networking Development Board is a low-cost modular development system for our 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit microcontrollers targeting CAN and LIN network related applications.
This Starter Kit features a dsPIC33EV256GM106 Digital Signal Controller (DSC) for automotive and motor control applications. It contains serial data ports for CAN, LIN and SENT, a self-contained USB programming/debug interface, and an expansion footprint for flexibility in application hardware development.
The TimeFlash 2 programmer allows you to program our field programmable oscillators to a custom frequency in seconds, enabling fast prototyping and testing. It can measure frequency accuracy and power consumption of standard oscillators, regardless of vendor, making it a valuable lab tool for engineers.
The MAQ5280 Evaluation Board demonstrates the features of the MAQ5280, a high-performance linear regulator offering a very- low noise output with a very-wide input voltage operating range from 4.5V to 120V DC.
The Explorer 16/32 Development Kit is a flexible, convenient and ready to start development, demonstration and testing platform for 16-bit PIC24 MCUs, dsPIC® DSCs and 32-bit PIC32 MCUs.
