1. Battery Management System Reference Design
A BMS is a critical component in high-value battery powered applications such as electric vehicles or energy storage. A BMS maintains the health of all the cells in the battery pack to deliver the power needed by the application. It also protects the cells from damage and maintains all the cells within the manufacturer-recommended operating conditions to prolong the life of the battery pack.
You can use an FPGA as a flexible and powerful platform for a BMS, using its high I/O count for parallel connections to many battery modules. An FPGA can accelerate processor-intensive calculations such as state-of-charge estimation.
