Battery Management Systems (BMS) improve the lifecycle, health and safety of power storage systems in electric vehicles

Battery Management Systems (BMS) improve the lifecycle, health and safety of power storage systems in electric vehicles

A BMS measures current, voltage and temperature in critical points of the battery pack and sends that information to an MCU to communicate with other vehicle systems in order to share the state of charge (SoC) and state of health (SoH) estimates for purposes of service.

BMS solution components

With our very flexible kit you can built 3 different BMS topologies (LV single node, centralized access, dual access ring), combining and adding the boards you need to set up your BMS application.

Development platform 

Inside the AutoDevKit ecosystem and our development platform STSW-AUTODEVKIT, you can find demos to evaluate the BMS kit in three different configurations.

Each demo software will determine the State of Charge (SoC) and the State of Health (SoH) of the battery pack, allowing efficient cells balancing and extending the battery’s lifespan to enable better performance.
