Highlighting the Electronic Components that Electrification Demands Today and Tomorrow

The statistics about the electric vehicle market’s prominence in the coming years are astounding. Taking data and insights into account, experts predict we will soon be living in a largely electrified world for travel, commuting, shipping goods and more:

  1. $425 billion in spending on electric vehicles in 2022.
  2. Aggressive legislative policy and mandates in the U.S. and E.U. for emissions standards.
  3. By 2030, enough batteries will have been manufactured to meet the growing demand for their use in EVs.
  4. The embrace of subsidies for EVs since 2021 suggests a priority shift among manufacturers and a market shift among consumers.
  5. Several emerging technologies, which are driving the adoption of EVs, are on the horizon. These products will change the way drivers interact with their vehicles, conserve energy and communicate with infrastructure.
  6. IBISWorld reports that there are 260 automotive manufacturing companies designing hybrid and electric vehicles as of 2023. That number has increased at an impressive average of 12.5% since 2018.

ECS Inc.’s relationship with the automotive and transportation design community has always thrived. However, as the EV market continues to expand, ECS Inc. recognizes the dynamic need to ensure strong partnerships with designers.

To support all EV designers, ECS Inc. is prepared to deliver components that meet EV project specifications now (e.g., real time clocks, AEC-Q200-qualified quartz tuning forks and others) while also investing in the development of future solutions.

The Direct Relationship Between EV Projects and Timing Solutions from ECS Inc.

ECS Inc. timing solutions are essential to the functionality of electric vehicles. Oscillators, quartz tuning forks, SMD crystals and many more timing options provide the signals that ensure communication between devices both inside and outside the vehicle. Timing components synchronize and orchestrate events, so that they occur at the precise moment they are needed.

However, not all oscillators are made equally. ECS Inc. manufacturers timing components that are specifically suited to the quality designers demand when designing for EV projects:

  • IATF 16949 certification
  • AEC-Q200 qualification
  • Wide temperature range
  • Compact size (small form factor)
  • High reliability
  • Low aging
  • Durability for rugged and harsh environments
  • Superior quality factor (“Q” factor)

ECS Inc. solutions are ready for use in circuit board designs that serve EV projects including:

  • Sensors for Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) and RADAR.
  • Cameras for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
  • Safety systems, such as driver and occupant monitoring systems (DOMS).
  • Battery technology.
  • Telematics (GPS tracking, vehicle monitoring and communication).
  • Computing hardware for autonomous driving features.
  • Infotainment and connectivity (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, navigation systems and more).
  • Microcontrollers and electronic control units (ECUs).
  • Emerging vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications.
  • Charging station connectivity and communications.
