Nissan Pathfinder chooses Li-Ion battery monitor
03 June 2014
The Pathfinder Hybrid sports utility vehicle reduces the size and weight of its Li-Ion battery system.
Maxim Integrated supplies the Li+ battery system monitor to Hitachi Vehicle Energy, used in the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid, destined for the North America market.
The battery monitor provides self-diagnostics and robust daisy-chained data communications to handle the high-voltage requirements of the automotive industry. “Maxim’s battery cell-monitoring IC was integral to achieving the highly reliable, smaller, lighter, and high-power Li+ battery system required for the newest hybrid car,” said Mr. Koji Masui, Department Manager, Lithium Ion Battery Development Dept., Hitachi Automotive Systems, Ltd.
The IC company is also developing a next-generation EV/HEV powertrain system.
