Zug, CH - November 8, 2016. Linear Technology together with design partner LION
Smart, a subsidiary of LION E-Mobility AG, are demonstrating the industry's
first wireless automotive battery management system (BMS) concept car at the
Electronica Show this week in Munich, Germany (Booth 524, Hall A4).
This wireless BMS concept car, developed by LION Smart GmbH, combines Linear's
highly accurate battery stack monitors with its SmartMesh wireless mesh
networking products and LION Smart's state-of-the-art Open Source BMS in a BMW
i3.
This demonstration of a fully wireless BMS car represents a significant
breakthrough that offers the potential for improved reliability, lower cost and
weight, and reduced wiring complexity for large multicell battery stacks in
electric and hybrid/electric vehicles. In addition wireless connectivity enables
more flexible placement of battery modules. Wireless connectivity also enables
more flexible placement of battery modules, and makes possible the installation
of sensors in locations previously unsuitable for a wiring harness. Erik Soule,
Vice President, Signal Conditioning Products for Linear Technology, stated, "New
designs of electric and hybrid/electric vehicles are increasing rapidly and all
of the major automotive manufacturers are searching for ways to improve the
performance and reliability of their battery management systems as they move
into higher volume production. The wireless BMS concept car, realized through
the expertise of LION Smart's BMS design, showcases our product vision." Mr.
Daniel Quinger, CEO of LION E-Mobility, stated, "One of our goals in this
ambitious project is to demonstrate the improvement in range and charging time
that can be achieved by using the latest technologies in partnership with
leading global players. Combining Kreisel Electric's laser welded 18650 modules
with direct liquid cooling and Linear Technology's SmartMesh IP wireless mesh
and the LTC6811 battery monitoring IC, together with LION Smart's Open BMS,
enabled  a unique battery system with record braking charge time of just 15
minutes, an energy capacity of over 55kWh, with a range of over 400km. This
represents a truly remarkable accomplishment."
The wireless BMS concept car, featuring the BMW i3, shows the promise of
wireless technology to significantly improve reliability and simplify the design
of automotive battery management systems. LION Smart is looking forward to a
bright future by continuing its outstanding partnership with Linear Technology.
