Global 48V Issues and Prospects Report 2018: Unlocking the Opportunities – ResearchAndMarkets.com

The “48V
Issues and Prospects: Unlocking the Opportunities – 2018 Edition”
report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s

The report offers insight into the opportunities and challenges offered
by the development of 48V Power Supply Systems for automotive OEMs,
established suppliers and potential new entrants.

It looks at new systems and new applications that are enabled by higher
voltage power systems – and the ripple effects on electrical and
electronic architectures and feature configurations that could follow.

48V systems will get better

There is a lot of room for improvement in the technology, according to
two leading engineering consultants familiar with the area:

Jason McConnell, Business Unit Director at IAV Automotive

People are looking to integrate technologies, putting the battery, power
electronics from the inverter and the DC-DC converter in one box so
you’ve got less cabling. 48V technologies can be adopted over a large
number of vehicles; there’s definitely reusability and scalability in
most designs.

Tomasz Salamon, Engineering Operations Manager for Hybrid and
Electric Systems at Ricardo: Eventually we’ll see more
components going to 48V, which gives you smaller and more-efficient
electrical components and more power capability.

And these benefits will be enhanced by scale effects.

Rudolf Stark, head of the Hybrid Electric Vehicle Business Unit at
Continental, has said that his company expects good market penetration
across all vehicle segments, from A to D. That, he says, will bring
large quantities of the technology to market and ensure cost-effective
