Syntiant Corp., a leader in delivering end-to-end edge AI solutions for always-on applications, and Eatron Technologies, a leading provider of intelligent battery management software platforms, today announced a collaboration agreement to deliver AI-ready, automotive-grade battery management systems designed to reduce costs, eliminate risk and shorten time to market.
"Battery-as-a-service is providing many new opportunities to bring deep learning to battery management systems," said Mallik Moturi, chief business officer at Syntiant. "Our collaboration with Eatron will enable faster, more reliable, real-time condition-based monitoring using our neural network processors that will vastly improve automobile performance and battery life."
Targeted to electric vehicle OEMs and battery pack suppliers, the joint solution will combine Eatron's software platform (BMSTAR®) with Syntiant's ultra-low-power NDP120 Neural Decision Processor™ to enable highly accurate edge AI processing for low- and high-voltage battery management systems.
"As electrification of mobility is accelerating at a faster pace than ever before, it is becoming even more important to deploy intelligent software on batteries to enable sustainable battery economics," said Umut Genc, Ph.D., CEO at Eatron Technologies. "We demonstrated strong leadership in battery management technologies including the most accurate SoC/SoH/RUL prediction algorithms for serial applications. We are working with Syntiant to develop a production ready, cost-effective edge solution that will achieve even superior performance, predictability and reliability over the lifetime of vehicles."
Both companies will be demonstrating the combined battery management system at CES 2023.
