At CES 2023, taking place Jan. 5-8 in Las Vegas, Skyworks Solutions Inc. introduced its isolated analog amplifiers, voltage sensors and delta-sigma modulator (DSM) device designed to accelerate charging times for electric vehicles (EVs).

The Si89xx family consists of three devices to help reduce recharge times for current and future EVs. The devices also offer improvements for solar inverters and wireless charging, Skyworks said.

According to Statista, the market for EVs is growing quickly due to consumer demand, government mandates and automotive OEMs embarking on its largest transition in history to electrification. This will create a market of about $400 billion soon, Statista said.

As a result of this increased EV demand, charging infrastructure is becoming equally important and reducing charging times is important for accelerating mass adoption of the technology.

The Si89xx device:

  • Offers precise measurement readings of current and voltage in power control systems.
  • Minimizes loss of power in systems.
  • Allows for more swift transfer of power.

“Built upon three generations of digital isolation technology, these solutions are engineered to be key enablers in the industry’s shift to vehicle electrification,” said Brian Mirkin, vice president and general manager of power products at Skyworks. “The Si89xx family is designed to provide an accurate, precise measurement of current and voltage, which allows for accelerated electric automotive charging.”
