World is going green driving the industries to follow up and adjust their manufacturing processes to the developing regulatory standards.
For the Automotive Industry this trend is becoming the most influential one. European regulations are targeted for significant CO2 emissions restriction in the nearest decade and meeting these targets becomes obligatory for the OEMs. Customers’ expectations are also turning towards greener solutions following growing social responsibility.
48V power and electrification systems implementation is a big step towards further digitization and automation of the vehicles. Higher voltage – higher efficiency: transition from the 12V systems doesn’t promise to be easy but will be beneficial for sure.
Fuel economy with the 48V implementation increases by almost 10%, wider connectivity and digitization perspectives are being provided as a bonus. But electrical architecture is not only about powertrains or fuel-economy improvement – it’s also about the growing amount of data being processed which is going to dramatically increase ensuring connectivity concepts development.
