Analog Devices' and Volvo Cars unveiled first pure electric SUV-the Volvo XC40 Recharge
Analog Devices, Inc. alongwith Volvo Cars announced the Volvo XC40 Recharge which will feature ADI’s integrated circuits (ICs) that support the battery management system (BMS) and Automotive Audio Bus (A2B). By saving vehicle weight and maximizing range, these advanced technologies deliver an attractive total cost of ownership for electric vehicles while also supporting a sustainable future.
The Volvo XC40 P8 Recharge was named a 2021 semi-finalist in the North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year Awards (NACTOY) utility vehicle category. The NACTOY Awards honour excellence in innovation, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value. The awards are intended to recognize the most outstanding new vehicles of the year.
“The BMS performance is critical to the electric XC40 Recharge delivering on its promise of a silent-but-powerful, carbon emission-free, safe driving experience,” said Lutz Stiegler, Solution Manager Electric Propulsion at Volvo Car Corporation. “An extraordinarily high level of thought and research went into every single aspect and component in our first pure electric SUV to ensure more miles per charge, longer vehicle life and peace of mind, while lowering the cost of ownership.”
ADI's ICs provide industry leading accuracy over the life of the vehicle that significantly increases miles per charge and are scalable across the vehicle fleet from hybrid vehicles to full electric vehicles. The ICs meet the highest global security standards, and scale across multiple battery chemistries, including the zero-cobalt chemistries such as lithium iron phosphate (LFP) that support social and environmental sustainability.
Furthermore, audio solutions built upon Analog Devices’ A2B and SHARC audio processor deliver an immersive cabin experience, and also support the sustainability trend. New audio features such as immersive sound, noise cancellation, and voice are becoming standard in the vehicle, and pose a serious wiring challenge. ADI’s solutions enable the audio system to be connected into a low-latency bus architecture that guarantees high audio fidelity and saves up to 50 kg of wire and insulation in the vehicle.
“Electric vehicles are the future of Automotive, and the market is growing significantly with up to 10 million full electric vehicles per year expected by 2025,” said Patrick Morgan, Vice President, Automotive at Analog Devices. “We are committed to continue delivering innovative technologies with all of our collaborators that lead the automotive industry to a sustainable future.”
