Optimized battery system designs are essential to next-generation EVs and HEVs. Any drift or instability in battery cell measurement directly influences the vehicles range and battery life. Several multi-cell balancing IC features play a key role in meeting the stringent safety, reliability and performance requirements of battery systems in EVs and HEVs. Read this white paper to learn about the decisions a system designer must make when selecting a BMS IC that can provide accurate cell measurement across the entire operating environment and life of the vehicle.
