EV Architecture Design: The 800-Pound Gorilla for Automotive Engineers

Presented by:

There’s lots of excitement in the automobile industry today. We’re accelerating toward a new reality whereby the number of internal-combustion-engine cars on our roads will eventually be surpassed by electric vehicles. Electrification is creating a new sense of urgency for automakers and their suppliers as number of EV models produced, as well as consumer demand, continues to grow. Tomorrow’s EV architectures need to be smaller, lighter, and cost-efficient without sacrificing robustness, reliability and adherence to strict industry standards. This represents a monumental challenge for engineering teams. Additionally, drivers seeking greater torque and range are creating higher demand for copper, which is opening the door for more creative (and potentially more complex) electrical architectures.

In this 60-minute webinar you will learn about:
• “Skateboard architectures” and how they are redefining the design process: higher power requirements, smaller footprints, harsher environments, and new applications
• How modern high-voltage connectivity solutions can deliver scalability and outstanding current rating performance, especially helpful in designing high-performance passenger cars, pick-ups, vans, and workhorse commercial vehicles
• Alternatives to copper cabling, which will become essential to reducing the vehicle’s weight and cost
• Interface challenges associated with high-power charging (800V/500A) and methods for reducing resistance, providing increased safety and reliability, and reducing the time it takes to recharge an EV’s battery
