It is estimated that by 2025 the market for electrified vehicles will expand to up to 45 million units. This growth expands the need for current sensing for traction and auxiliary motor control as well as DC/DC converters and chargers—and these current sensors must optimize battery consumption and maximize power.
Join this session at Sensors Expo 2019 to learn about the technological innovations in current sensing that are giving leading OEMs a competitive edge.
- Reduce size and cost of motor/generator inverters with new coreless technology
- Improve accuracy in motor/generator inverters with core-based current sensor ICs
- Reduce BOM and PCB area to improve power density in DC/DC and charging applications with fully integrated, high isolation, standard surface mount current sensor ICs.
- Reduce size and improve overall system quality levels with bandwidth options up to 1 MHz, replacing high frequency current transformers.
Georges El Bacha is the Product Line Manager, Current Sensor ICs, Advanced Sensor Technology Business Unit at Allegro Microsystems. Georges leads the strategic vision and defines the roadmap for automotive and industrial current sensor ICs for Allegro. He has also served as a senior systems engineer at Allegro, a role in which he helped to define and develop multiple cutting-edge current sensor ICs, including Allegro’s first GMR based current sensor IC (ACS70331) and first automotive grade 1MHz current sensor IC (ACS733). Before joining Allegro, Georges was a senior mixed-signal IC design engineer at Analog Devices where he contributed to the design of multiple DSP and Audio Codec ICs. Georges holds a B. Eng. in Electrical Engineering from McGill University, Canada, and is the co-inventor on five patents related to semiconductor ICs.
