Mouser Electronics is exploring the latest developments, advancements and challenges in electric and hybrid vehicle technology through its extensive EV/HEV resource hub.

Staying ahead in this rapidly evolving industry is crucial for engineers and innovators as advancing technologies like bi-directional charging and vehicle autonomy enteri the market.

Mouser's EV/HEV resource hub offers a range of content including eBooks, blogs, articles, products, and more, all designed to keep engineers at the forefront of these technological advancements.

Across the globe, electric vehicles (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) are changing not just the way people drive but also the way people live.

Electric infrastructure is advancing with the use of emerging technologies, such as liquid-cooled HPC connectors, while still maintaining the latest industry standards and lowering maintenance costs.

This development empowers the future of eMobility, as discussed in Mouser's interactive content series Electrifying the Future of eMobility, exploring how current renewable energy sources and evolving technologies like hydrogen electrolysis are driving toward a net-zero future.

The EV/HEV technology content hub offers engineers easy access to resources from Mouser's technical team and leading manufacturers.

In a recent eBook with TE Connectivity, EV and Connected Transportation, industry experts explain the tandem movement of e-mobility and connected travel via new standards and the use of the V2X ecosystem to make more efficient, accurate, and safer roads for vehicles. The benefits and challenges of designing solutions for the future of transportation are discussed in depth, including the differences in wireless charging and battery swapping in green freight technology.

Mouser stocks a wide selection of semiconductors and electronic components, including the following solutions from top manufacturers for EV/ HEV applications:

  • KM3x 32-bit microcontrollers from NXP Semiconductors are precision metrology MCUs with segment LCDs and are based on an Arm® Cortex®-M0+ core. They provide a low-cost and highly integrated solution for electricity meters that require powerful 32-bit processing capability, precision-analog, security, and HMI functionality. The KM3x MCUs provide security through tamper detection with time stamping for various EV applications.
  • The MX150 mid-voltage connectors from Molex are designed to meet the growing demand in the automotive industry for 48V electrical systems. The connectors offer a pre-assembled terminal position assurance housing and one-piece, 3.50mm-pitch housing for applications in automotive, commercial vehicles, power, and more.
  • The AEKD-STEREOAVAS integrated stereo AVAS kit by STMicroelectronics provides a demonstration and prototyping platform for an acoustic vehicle alerting system (AVAS). An AVAS is designed to emit vehicle warning sounds and alert pedestrians to the presence of electric drive vehicles.
  • The BQ79718-Q1 automotive 18S battery monitor by Texas Instruments provides high-accuracy cell-voltage measurements for up to 18 battery modules in high-voltage battery management systems (BMS) for HEVs and EVs.
  • The 1200V CoolSiC M1H modules from Infineon Technologies deliver superior gate-oxide reliability, which is allowed by its state-of-the-art trench design. With the ability to tailor the modules for different application needs, they provide various benefits of higher frequency operation to reduce system and operational costs for fast EV charging or solar energy systems.
