This article will tell you more information about power battery management integrated system solution, so you just need to read it carefully.

Solution Introduction

BMS (Battery Management System) is a management system for lithium batteries of electric vehicles, which is the key link between the "battery", the core component of electric vehicles, and the vehicle. BMS is an accurate "tuner" for electric vehicle batteries. Generally speaking, BMS can help solve safety issues such as increasing inconsistencies between batteries, battery efficiency, poor life and serious fires. As people's pursuit of new energy vehicles' endurance and battery safety continues to grow, the battery management system BMS is increasingly valued.

Generally speaking, the BMS is composed of a master control unit and multiple slave control units. The slave control unit is directly connected to the battery pack to collect the battery voltage, current, and temperature. (Chrysanthemum chain) Manage multiple slave control units through communication and other methods. The NMS S32K144-based BMS all-in-one solution launched by the General Assembly World Peace Group supports daisy chains and CAN networks. With great flexibility, it can meet the needs of different customers.

Hardware design

Control section

Use NXP S32K144 as the BMS control and processing unit. On the one hand, CAN BUS can be connected to other BMUs and other ECUs to receive signals from many sensors on the body. On the other hand, SPI is used to convert to Transformer Physical directly or through NXP MC33664. Layer (TPL) communicates with NXP MC3371D AFE IC to obtain the data collected by AFE. The features of S32K144 are as follows:

ARM Cortex-M4 up to 112Mhz;

Flash / RAM-512 KB / 64KB;

Rich peripheral resources: 4 × 16bit timer, 1 × 32bit LP timer, RTC, 4 x LPSPI (with 1 emulated SPI by Flex IO), 4 x LPUART, 3 x FlexCAN, 2 x16 (12-bit) ADC

Function Safety ASIL-B

The S32K series has a variety of products for customers to choose from, and has a wealth of supporting tools for customers to develop
