Electric vehicles are powered by electric motors supplied by rechargeable electric energy storage systems. Several schemes to implement the propulsion system are already available, as well as several solutions to recharge the power accumulators. A good solution for light-weight, small-size vehicles is a low-voltage electric traction system. The embedded electronics must have high reliability standards to ensure the best power usage under all conditions.
With its broad product portfolio of power switches (MOSFETs), coupled with its ICs and microcontrollers, ST ensures the best solutions for your electric traction application.
