An Electric Vehicle (EV) charging system supplies power for recharging electric vehicles. Typical EV chargers are made up of at least one smart controller board and one power socket board. The smart controller manages security, services and connectivity to a remote server and the power socket board measures energy.
EV charging systems require high levels of efficiency, accuracy, connectivity and security. NXP solutions meet the requirements with accurate power measurement, device management and data security. Our rich enablement supports faster time to market with less complexity and reduced cost, and NXP's product longevity program supports longer product lifecycles.
Smart charging allows for a user-friendly “plug-and-charge” mechanism for authentication, authorization, billing, and flexible load control based on information exchanged between an EV and the charging infrastructure. Smart charging enables a bidirectional charging infrastructure following the ISO 15118 –the standard for communication between EVs and charging stations in which data communications between the interfaces are on a secure channel.
