E3Car -> Nanoelectronics for an energy efficient electrical car

Objective

The objective of the project is the development of nanoelectronics technologies, devices, circuits architectures and modules for electrical cars/vehicles and demonstration of these modules in a final systems.
Emissions from road vehicles have to be reduced substantially in the future. The ultimate goal of most car manufacturers is to get to a completely electric vehicle, protecting the environment from emissions and noise, with alternative on-board energy sources (solar) and connection to the grid. In this context the project is addressing the development of highly efficient electrical vehicles, the battery control, the high-voltage components (IGBTs, high-voltage FETs) and the architectures and subsystems for the electronics of electrical vehicles.
The project considers both vertical integration with the final user and equipment providers and horizontal cooperation to build a solid nanoelectronic technology base for Europe electrical car industry and establish standard designs and platforms for electrical/hybrid cars.
The project will consider architectures, technologies and modules being applied to electric vehicles on systems and sub-system levels.
New design and concepts are considered for power train, power conversion, power management and battery management. These systems are considered fail safe and fault tolerant and new methods and technologies for improved reliability and increased lifetime will be developed during the validation phase.
In this context the power and high voltage electronics and smart miniaturized systems for power management, engine control and energy recovery systems will be specified and developed, based on the voltage / current range of needed modules. This results in research activities concerning MOS/DMOS or IGBT-Technologies to become highly energy efficient.
The over all target are energy savings of 35%.
