The rise of 48V technology - OEMs implemeting new technologies & suppliers developing new systems

The rise of 48V technology - OEMs implemeting new technologies & suppliers developing new systems

In recent years, 48 volt technology has been identified as an answer to some of the challenges faced by the automotive industry, and we are beginning to see the fruition of development in this area. Emission targets are a key driver for 48 volt systems, and electric vehicles and full hybrid vehicles have already demonstrated significant improvements in fuel efficiency. Thus the development of mild-hybrid vehicles has gained traction in terms of efficiency and cost. The article by Automotive IQ "The rise of 48V technology" contains information on different OEMs implemeting new technologies as well as suppliers developing new systems.

Article on ISO 21780 set to make life easier for 48V system suppliers

Existing standards don't directly address the 48V powertrain. ISO has tasked the ISO/TC 22/SC 32 Technical Committee with developing such a unique 48V specification: Presently the process rests at 30.60 with the voting/ comment period having closed on 31st May 2018. Although the ISO 21780 standard is only due to be finalized in 2019 it will play a significant role in cutting supplier costs and optimizing efficiencies - find out more and read the exclusive article here for free:
