The new automotive-grade relay is intended for use in EV battery-junction boxes, fast chargers, solar and industrial inverters, and the DC line of energy storage systems. Measuring 45 mm… Read more »
Fujitsu has launched the FTR-K5, a 6.6 kW relay for on-board EV battery chargers. The FTR-K5 is a 1 Form A printed circuit board relay. It features a 105º C temperature rating and 8 mm insulation distance between coil and contact. The FTR-K5 also features a 5,000 VAC withstand voltage between coil and contact and… Read more »
FDK and Fujitsu Laboratories have jointly developed lithium cobalt pyrophosphate (Li2CoP2O7) as a cathode material for solid-state lithium-ion batteries. The new material can operate at charge/discharge voltages of more than 5 V, which is beyond the limits of current lithium batteries. The energy of a battery is a function of its voltage and capacity, so an… Read more »
The future of battery swapping technology in general is far from clear, but it seems to be well suited to the needs of electric scooters. Fujitsu and venture start-up RESC Ltd. have announced that they will collaborate in developing a system that uses Fujitsu’s cloud service to manage the cassette-type secondary batteries used in RESC’s… Read more »
Hexagon has adopted the Fugaku supercomputer to run complex CFD (computational fluid dynamics) simulations. The company’s Manufacturing Intelligence division is using the supercomputer to explore the performance of next-generation aircraft and EVs. Hexagon says its Cradle CFD customers will have the opportunity to tap into the ARM-based Fugaku computer architecture to perform complex simulations, such… Read more »
