Software Motor Company and Ansys speed development of advanced motors

Software Motor Company (SMC) and Ansys are collaborating to accelerate the development of ultra-efficient switched reluctance motors (SRMs) that solve critical noise vibration and harshness (NVH) issues.  Traditional AC induction motors drive most of today’s power-hungry machines, including EVs. SRMs are more efficient, reliable, and durable, but to drive industry adoption, they must overcome NVH… Read more »

GaN Systems and EPowerlab partner on new DC/DC converter

GaN Systems and engineering services firm EPowerlabs have partnered to develop a high-density DC/DC power converter (DDC48-1K) for a wide range of 48 V mobility applications for consumer, industrial and automotive customers. The companies say the new GaN converter is smaller and lighter than standard converters.  The converter’s input range is 24-60 VDC, and the… Read more »

BMW i Ventures announces strategic investment in GaN Systems

BMW i Ventures has announced a strategic investment in semiconductor maker GaN Systems. GaN Systems focusses on power transistors based on Gallium nitride (GaN), a wide band gap semiconductor material that promises higher energy efficiency, smaller form factors and higher performance. “GaN Systems’ power transistors have created new possibilities for engineers to build the power… Read more »

Pi Innovo and GaN Systems collaborate to design auxiliary systems for electrified vehicles

As start/stop, mild hybrid and multi-voltage systems continue to creep into “conventional” gas vehicles, controls engineering firm Pi Innovo and semiconductor manufacturer GaN Systems foresee steadily growing demand for their products. The two companies recently announced that they are collaborating to offer automakers a pathway to the electrification of vehicle auxiliary systems. Hybrids and EVs… Read more »

Winning Google Little Box Challenge inverter powered by GaN Systems transistors

Google and the IEEE Power Electronics Society established the Little Box Challenge to stimulate the development of inverters, key components of both solar energy installations and EV systems. The challenge to engineers: “Figure out how to shrink an inverter down to something smaller than a laptop (a reduction of 10× in volume), and you’ll win… Read more »

Level 2 onboard charger with GaN semiconductors achieves record efficiency

Charging levels are headed higher, and greater efficiency could make it easier to top up tomorrow’s bigger batteries without straining the grid. Researchers at the Advanced Power Electronics Lab at Kettering University, in partnership with auto electronics giant HELLA, now report that they have built a Level 2 onboard charger with an efficiency of 97%,… Read more »
