Upgrade Electric Vehicle Battery Performance with Electronics

March 02, 2013 // By Mike Kultgen, Linear Technology Corp
The electronics in a (hybrid) electric vehicle battery are the key to performance and safety. New advances in integrated circuit design are allowing battery pack designers to derive more performance from Li-ion batteries. Better measurement accuracy, more robust data links, and the active balancing of cells results in lower cost, longer drive cycles, and quicker charging.
