In the quest for autonomous driving in electric vehicles, system availability will be a crucial constraint, especially for systems involved in power distribution, such as low voltage (12V) generation.
Today, fault-tolerant systems, like HV/LV DC/DC converters, are based on full redundancy, but redundant topologies are expensive, oversized and heavy.
In this free webinar, NXP’s Erik Santiago and Angela Bernal Pinzon propose a safety concept for HV-LV power converters that increases availability without full redundancy.
Key topics and takeaways:
- Discover NXP’s approach to functional safety
- Learn how NXP is developing safety systems using MBD
- Find out how to make a power converter safe
