Eatron and Syntiant introduce new battery management chip

UK-based battery management software developer Eatron Technologies has introduced a new battery management system-on-chip with US-based edge artificial intelligence (AI) semiconductor company Syntiant for light mobility, industrial and consumer electronics applications.

The new AI-BMS-on-chip chip integrates Eatron’s Intelligent Software Layer into Syntiant’s low-power NDP120 Neural Decision Processor. The jointly-developed chip uses the processing power of Syntiant’s NDP120 to operate on the edge, where it can deliver real-time analysis and decision-making directly on the device without needing to rely on cloud infrastructure that would otherwise introduce cost, latency and power consumption issues.

The AI-BMS-on-chip can unlock 10% additional capacity and increase battery lifespan by up to 25%, while reducing time-to-market, according to the companies. Applications include e-bikes, micro LCVs and forklifts. The chip can be customized for each application through a toolchain and existing BMS hardware can be upgraded with ease.

“We are now running our latest AI models completely integrated on the edge in the Syntiant chip,” said Amedeo Bianchimano, Chief Product Delivery Officer at Eatron Technologies. “With AI-BMS-on-chip, we can ensure any battery-powered application can be deployed in the millions in complete safety while getting the most out of the battery.”
