Interview: Full Car Computer Could be a Reality by 2027

Patrick Leteinturier

As electrification progresses, in-vehicle hardware and software architectures will evolve from distributed electronics to a “full car computer and zonal” model. We spoke with Patrick Leteinturier, Fellow Automotive Systems, Infineon Technologies, about these new architectures, new semiconductor materials, and the central role of “motion control”.

Powertrain Systems: Pushing the Boundaries

Gernot Goppelt, CTI Correspondent To better reflect the road to climate-neutral mobility, our CTI Symposia Novi and Berlin are expanding their range of topics for 2023. In addition to electric drives and components, the presentations and discussions will also cover topics such as sustainable mobility, renewable energies and upstream CO2 reduction. One question is becoming…

Ajedium™ PEEK Slot Liner Enables 800V eMotor Downsizing & Weight Reduction

DeeDee Smith, Luigi Marino, Brian Baleno Solvay Materials A significant challenge for eMotor 800 Volt designers is to design smaller and more compact eMotors. Successfully doing so allows for the potential to reduce the mass of both the eMotor and battery pack. A new slot liner material, Ajedium™ PEEK films, gives engineers the design freedom…

E-Motor Efficiency and Lower Costs are Stacked in Your Favor

glulock® - A unique in-tool bonding technology for e-laminations in motor stacks Motor-cores have been build by mechanically interlocking individual motor laminations for decades. With materials in laminations for e-motor cores becoming thinner and thinner and increased efficiencies of electrified propulsion systems this process of mechanically interlocking the „stacks“ has become more and more difficult…

Efficient Turnkey Machining of Complex e-Drive Components

Perfect E-Shaft with Integrated Production Solution For the transmissions of electric vehicles to develop the desired high torque under all driving conditions, a very large gear ratio is needed, which requires high speeds. And to ensure sufficient momentum at all speeds and enable the driver to accelerate without shifting gears, the electric drive has to…

Event Report CTI SYMPOSIUM USA 2023

How far do powertrains extend? As electrification increases, you might say they go from plug to wheel. But as this year‘s discussions at the CTI Symposium in Novi showed, infrastructures and the availability of energy sources also need to be considered. The overarching factor is the need to reduce the CO2 footprint of future vehicles.…
