More miles, fewer wires in future electric vehicles

Electric vehicles (EV) may boast comfortable interiors and elegant tech, but the chassis underneath is packed with as many battery cells as the manufacturer can fit in. Every cell is connected with wires to monitor and regulate performance, and the weight of all that wiring is a drag on range, reliability and price. Our new wireless BMS solution eliminates bulky wiring, creating new opportunities in EV design that can help improve driving range and reliability.

Driving the electric vehicle evolution with GaN

Electric and hybrid-electric vehicles that incorporate our company’s latest automotive-qualified gallium nitride (GaN) power-management technology will be able to charge faster and drive farther than automotive systems based on traditional silicon-based charging technology. Enabling automobile manufacturers to remove these barriers to widespread adoption of HEV/EVs is a major step toward lowering emissions that affect air quality and climate worldwide.

Journey of innovation

A “Just do It” attitude is exactly what was required of the TI mmWave R&D team during their nine-year innovation journey to create a technology that made it possible to integrate affordable mmWave radar systems into mid-to-low-end vehicles to improve safety. This is the inside story.

Vision: Possible

Imagine a low-cost radar sensor that could be affixed to a firefighter's helmet to detect an unconscious or incapacitated person through walls and smoke. Thanks to our company's engineers who created the world's first millimeter-wave radar system on chip, our customers can integrate radar sensing technology into an array of applications that improve safety on the road and in factories, and could even help firefighters save lives.

Perfect timing

When it comes online in 2027, the Square Kilometer Array telescope project will give astronomers access to more deep-space data than ever before. But a quarter billionth of a second threatened to derail the project. The National Research Council of Canada and TI partnered to solve the challenge with our new high-speed data converter.

Cars get a jolt from 48 volt

Many of today’s automobiles, and their internal combustion engines, are in the midst of a transformation as emissions regulations force automakers to find ways to lower cars' carbon output efficiently and effectively. A step-change is needed from traditional 12-volt electrical systems – and that change is a 48-volt electrical system.
