Analog Devices’ Battery Management System ICs and Automotive Audio Bus Power Volvo’s All Electric XC40 SUV
The Volvo XC40 P8 Recharge was a 2021 semi-finalist in the North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year™ Awards (NACTOY) utility vehicle category. The NACTOY Awards honor excellence in innovation, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value. The awards are intended to recognize the most outstanding new vehicles of the year.
“The BMS performance is critical to the electric XC40 Recharge delivering on its promise of a silent-but-powerful, carbon emission-free, safe driving experience,” said
ADI's ICs provide industry leading accuracy over the life of the vehicle that significantly increases miles per charge and are scalable across the vehicle fleet from hybrid vehicles to full electric vehicles. The ICs meet the highest global security standards, and scale across multiple battery chemistries, including the zero-cobalt chemistries such as lithium iron phosphate (LFP) that support social and environmental sustainability.
Furthermore, audio solutions built upon Analog Devices’ A2B and SHARC® audio processor not only deliver an immersive cabin experience, but also support the sustainability trend. New audio features such as immersive sound, noise cancellation, and voice are becoming standard in the vehicle, and pose a serious wiring challenge. ADI’s solutions enable the audio system to be connected into a low-latency bus architecture that guarantees high audio fidelity and saves up to 50 kg of wire and insulation in the vehicle. This combination is especially important in electric vehicles, such as the XC40 Recharge, as the reduction in weight translates directly to increased range.
“Electric vehicles are the future of Automotive, and the market is growing significantly with up to 10 million full electric vehicles per year expected by 2025,” said
