E-mobility covers a very wide range of human transportation applications — not just traction motors and EVs but also e-bikes, e-scooters and other recreational equipment. Additionally, EVs have very complex electrical systems when compared with normal cars, with two or even three different electrical busses (12V/48V/high voltage). This white paper reviews Microchip’s solutions for all types of e-mobility motor control applications, including traction motors, fans, pumps, compressors and many others that all have different run-time and control requirements.
Designers of high-voltage power systems have struggled to meet customers’ needs for continued innovation when using silicon MOSFETs and IGBTs.
This article focuses on the three EV charging levels and the Microchip solutions that can support several aspects of residential, commercial and fast charging systems.
