New interactive content series focuses on EV electrification

15-05-2024 | Mouser Electronics | Power

Mouser has announced a new interactive content series in collaboration with Littelfuse, a global leader in circuit protection and power management.

'Electrifying the Future of eMobility' features articles and infographics examining the challenges of creating different charging solutions for various use cases. Electrification of small passenger vehicles, scooters, and commercial EVs can differ greatly. Off-road EVs used in agriculture or construction, such as tractors and bulldozers, also need more robust charging and storage capabilities than passenger vehicles. Circuit protection, battery management, and improving efficiency in electrical systems are discussed, as are the rising expectations for the occupant experience, such as advanced infotainment systems, driver assist, and vehicle autonomy.

The content series also showcases many key products from Littelfuse that play vital roles in addressing the design challenges of vehicle electrification. Its SiC-MOSFETs are key in managing power more efficiently within the vehicle's electrical system, providing various advantages over conventional silicon-based components. The higher efficiency of SiC-MOSFETs results in less power lost through heat. This decreases the necessity for extensive cooling systems, making them more suitable for the demanding environments of commercial EVs.

The Littelfuse 437A surface-mount fuses are AEC-Q200 qualified, ensuring they are rugged and reliable enough to operate in the automotive environment. These devices help protect the power distribution unit, BMS, and onboard charger. The 881 SMD fuses deliver overcurrent protection for high-current circuits, such as routers, high-power battery systems, and power distribution. ESD protection devices like the AXGD Xtreme-Guard automotive suppressors supply ultra-low capacitance to protect high-speed lines like automotive Ethernet.
