The rapid rise of oil prices has pushed the growth of electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs)to take center-stage in the automotive industry. The high voltage batteries used in these systems require safe insulation and isolation. Broadcom offers a complete family of products that can be used to simplify designs. These products enable more reliable inverter system design for the HEV and EV markets. Devices range from gate drivers to analog and digital current and voltage sensor ICs. These parts ensure reinforced galvanic insulation between the control circuits from the high voltages and the power semiconductor devices.
