The board has been especially developed for validating battery management and charging systems. It simulates the electronic behavior of battery cells with an unprecedented degree of precision and speed. Since the cell simulation board is completely flexibly programmable, sophisticated algorithms – such as those used for electrochemical battery models – can be implemented directly on the board.
Due to its great computing power and the short microsecond-based cycles involved, the cell simulation card is ideally suited for the development of future battery management functions, such as cell balancing mechanisms. Furthermore, the card is already able to simulate starter batteries as well as new lithium-technology-based battery types (e.g. lithium solid-state batteries).
