Read MoreHide Full Article

Analog Devices Inc. (ADI - Free Report) recently announced that the company’s precision battery management system (BMS) integrated circuits (ICs) will be used by Rimac Automobili in its electric vehicle systems.

The company’s battery management ICs will enable Rimac’s BMS to extract maximum energy and capacity out of its batteries. This can be done by calculating reliable State of Charge and other battery parameters, thereby increasing efficiency.

The battery management ICs help in organizing battery requirements of a system by managing the power consumption from various power sources. This makes the system working on battery management ICs more reliable and efficient.

Consequently, this move is likely to boost the adoption rate of the company’s BMS integrated circuits, which in turn will drive the top line.
