The focus of concern in the expansion and adoption of electric vehicles into society has recently shifted from range anxiety to concern over charging speed and accessibility, which is driving the development and expansion of the EVs as well as their fast-charging station infrastructure. 
 
What are some of the considerations that the designer should think about when creating the next generation of advanced electric vehicles? In this podcast, sixth in a six-part series, we talk with Miro Adzan, General Manager of Industrial Systems, Factory Automation, & Control at Texas Instruments.

Not too long ago, electric vehicles were still a rare sight in the streets, seen as a luxury. Since then, electric cars have made significant steps toward mainstream acceptance as drivers are looking for lower energy cost per mile, a fun driving experience and reducing the carbon footprint. At the heart of every EV are power electronics systems.
The performance of these systems will help define the acceleration and success of EV’s adoption in the coming years, as they directly impact cost, driving range, and charge time. The demand for more performance from these systems directly translates to demand for more microcontroller performance, in terms of both real-time control and advanced computing.
Today we’re talking with Mike Pienovi, GM and Product Line Manager for Sitara Processors at Texas Instruments, about those challenges, and some of the latest microcontroller solutions from TI that address them.

The automobile is at a convergence of all the latest technologies, as vehicles continue to evolve into a smarter, connected system. To do this, they must integrate the latest in embedded electronic systems, especially when it comes to power. Developing and creating these advanced automotive systems is a challenging one, driven by both technology and societal expectations.
 
In this, the fourth episode of this podcast series, Alix sits down with Kannan Soundarapandian, Vice President and Business Unit Manager for Texas Instruments’ High Voltage Power Group, to talk about those challenges, and some of the latest solutions from TI that address them.

Modern vehicles have evolved far beyond simply being a means of transportation. Cars are becoming even more a part of our extended identity. Every recent technological advancement, from wide band gap semiconductors to machine learning and artificial intelligence, is being harnessed in the service of creating the next generation of vehicles.
What makes the car? What is it today? And what does the future hold?
This is the third episode of a six-episode podcast series titled, ‘Paving the Way to the Road of the Future.’ The podcast is produced by Electronic Design in collaboration with Texas Instruments, a leader in the design and manufacturing of semiconductors.
In this episode, host Alix Paultre, editor at large for Electronic Design, sits down with Henrik Mannesson, General Manager for Grid Infrastructure for Texas Instruments, to discuss the migration of vehicles toward more and more intelligent and connected vehicle systems. They also explore issues in EV charging and the role of high-voltage power technologies.
