September 22, 2011 -- All-electric vehicles that function without an internal combustion engine need safe, cost-effective, and high-capacity energy-storage systems. Efficient software algorithms, powerful microcontrollers and highly efficient electric motors make possible maximum use of available energy, and a high level of integration enables leaner and cheaper motor control systems. New generations of highly integrated MCUs developed specifically for the hybrid and electric vehicles include timer structures, which generate motor control signals, along with various I/O ports and interfaces.
