New system ICs for battery management and powertrain
Munich and Reutlingen, Germany – System ICs are application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) designed to meet special requirements in vehicle systems. They are integrated on a single silicon chip measuring only a few square millimeters, and house complex circuits with up to several million individual electronic functions. At electronica 2018, the world’s leading trade show for electronics, Bosch introduces four new system-ICs.
A new chip for electric vehicles will shut off the power in the event of an accident, ensuring safety for driver and passengers and enable rescuers to work without being put in danger.
