Analog Devices Expands BMS Portfolio to Enable Continuous Battery Monitoring for Electric Vehicles and Energy Storage Systems
June 01, 2021
Analog Devices announced that its expanded portfolio of battery management system (BMS) products including ASIL-D functional safety and new low-power features to enable continuous battery monitoring.
Per the company, these new devices further differentiate ADI’s BMS platform designed to deliver accuracy, and support all key battery chemistries—including zero-Cobalt LFP (lithium iron phosphate)—for mass market electric vehicles (EVs) and energy storage systems (ESS) used for reuse and recycling of battery packs.
ADI’s newest BMS products support multiple battery cell configurations and deliver low-power features that enable the battery to be monitored continuously even when the vehicle is turned off to ensure safety under all conditions while maximizing vehicle range. Per the company, the expanded portfolio of BMS products have recieved an ASIL-D rating, signifying the new BMS solutions meet the standards for road vehicle functional safety required by regulatory agencies.
ADI’s BMS products are optimized for 6-18 cell modules and offer features including low-power continuous battery monitoring, functional safety, and ideal accuracy and device temperature range.
