NXP collaborates with Elektrobit on next-generation automotive battery management systems

NXP Semiconductors, in collaboration with Elektrobit, has co-developed a software platform that can support NXP’s high-voltage battery management system (HVBMS) reference design.

Elektrobit is an award-winning and visionary global vendor of embedded and connected software products and services for the automotive industry. A leader in automotive software with over 35 years of serving the industry, Elektrobit’s software powers over five billion devices in more than 600 million vehicles and offers flexible, innovative solutions for car infrastructure software, connectivity & security, automated driving, and related tools, and user experience. Elektrobit is a wholly-owned, independently-operated subsidiary of Continental.

Using Elektrobit’s Classic AUTOSAR tooling and software, the new software platform of the HVBMS reference design makes the development of HVBMS architectures for electric vehicles (EVs) easier by abstracting the communication and controlling interactions between the BMS microcontroller and the battery cell controllers

The software aims to reduce the entry-level cost of battery management system (BMS) development and enhance the ease of use of NXP’s high-voltage BMS reference design.

As demand for battery-powered cars (EVs) continues to increase, so does the demand for improved performance, faster charging time, increased range and battery life, and improved safety. All of these demands are driving rapid technological advancements in EV battery designs, especially for high voltages like 400V or 800V.

These demands are only going to contribute to working toward a sustainable future and improving environmental practices.
