In this episode of Inside Electronics, we talk with Greg Green, Director of Automotive Marketing at Vicor, about the importance of sophisticated and efficient power systems in the next generation of electric vehicles (EVs) and the related charging infrastructure.

Today’s EVs are seemingly at the center of every developing technology, from AI to wide-bandgap semiconductors. In turn, the supporting power electronics must be as advanced as the systems they’re driving.

The development of vehicle electrification solutions has accelerated the evolution of automotive systems design. Solutions brought to industry that increase the power required to operate the vehicle will thus influence how designers source power for various in-vehicle systems.
