Why Fast Time-to-Market Calls for Flexible EV Battery Management Systems

Abstract: The design of a smart sensor for electric vehicle batteries poses mechanical and electrical challenges. The MAX17853 is a flexible data-acquisition system for the management of high-voltage and low-voltage automotive battery modules. It allows for a flexible battery configuration that saves cost, time to qualification and time to market. With this solution, the voltage across each battery cell is measured with high accuracy for reporting and balancing, and the busbars are monitored for fault detection.
