More miles, fewer wires in future electric vehicles
Our new wireless BMS solution eliminates bulky wiring in electric vehicles, creating new opportunities to improve driving range and reliability.
Pushing automotive power tech faster and further
Power electronics and teamwork are two of Pradeep Shenoy’s passions, and he’s at his best when they intersect. His love for technology began with a university project: Building a hybrid formula one race car. Now, he leads our company’s automotive power design team that is finding ways to push power further.
Driving the electric vehicle evolution with GaN
Electric and hybrid-electric vehicles that incorporate our latest gallium nitride (GaN) solution will charge faster and drive farther, removing barriers to their widespread adoption.
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.
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.
The chip that changed the world
TIer Jack Kilby’s invention of the integrated circuit, plus decades of subsequent innovation, demonstrate our passion to create a better world by making electronics more affordable through semiconductors.
Doing more with less power
Our insatiable appetite for electricity – from data servers to vehicle electrification to the Industrial Internet of Things – brings challenges to pack more power in smaller spaces, all while reducing system costs. “Helping the world do more with less power is critical, because our desire for more data and more connected devices is not slowing down,” said Steve Lambouses, vice president and general manager of High Voltage Power.
The new tech frontier in senior care
Advances in technology that improve the quality of life for seniors also help keep them out of the hospital. From mobility to memory loss, there is surging demand for cutting-edge technology to ease the burden on both the aging generation and their caregivers.
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.
