The Nuvation Battery Management System (BMS) team will be appearing at Design West next week to showcase its next-generation battery management system design. The team will be charging, monitoring and balancing multiple battery packs in real-time using the BMS platform. The demonstration features a Microchip dsPIC33 processor and will be in booth 1116 alongside design partners, Microchip.
The BMS is currently in use in eRex, a street-legal electric racecar designed by the Nuvation team. eRex has a top speed of 160mph, can go from 0-60mph in 5 seconds, and has more torque per pound than a Porsche 911 Turbo. Says CEO Michael Worry “We have leveraged the experience gained in developing the one-of-a-kind all-electric E.Rex vehicle to enhance our BMS for next-generation power systems that are anticipated to be adopted across many EV platforms.”
