EVs, HEVs Push for Development of More Advanced Battery Management Systems & Power Semiconductors

Jan 17, 2018 | Rogers Corporation

Twelve countries around the globe have set goals to end the sale of gas- and diesel-powered vehicles starting in 2040. This will significantly accelerate the uptake of electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid vehicles (HEVs). It will also increase the need for improved battery management systems to monitor and control the high-voltage battery stacks, and for power semiconductor devices for battery management, on-board charging, infotainment, electric motors, and more.
