Today’s advanced vehicles and power solutions are more sophisticated and have highly advanced power requirements. Properly managing this power within the battery pack is critical to the success of the system. Getting it wrong can mean serious safety issues or system failures. Getting it right means seamless, reliable operation for years. At Stafl Systems, we have designed the most advanced battery management systems. We understand battery chemistry and circuitry, and have the experience to make it all flow seamlessly into the powertrain design. Whether we adapt one of our existing products or make a new battery management for your specific application, we will find the solution that provides the best results without compromising safety.
Integrating different systems into a central processing environment that can provide reliable vehicle operation requires years of experience. Understanding how these systems work together to impact vehicle performance is paramount to the central control and systems integration. We bring our experience working on the most extreme vehicles, serving as the electrical systems integration contractor, to develop vehicle control systems that are ruggedized and meet the most important engineering specifications: yours. Stafl Systems is committed to ensuring that each vehicle control system we design and build work reliably and perform consistently to the required specifications. Our engineers can work with vehicle development teams on all aspects of electrical system integration and development to help your team reach your goals.
Integrated Programmable Development Environment
Vehicle control and battery management are both software-intensive applications that provide opportunities for system customization to reach the required performance specifications. Stafl Systems works in both traditional environments including MATLAB/SIMULINK and the faster and more flexible C++ programing languages to customize system performance. We also offer our own Stafl Systems Control Studio that uses C++ and can create more efficient team workflows and has an ever-expanding code.
Electric and Hybrid Powertrain Design
A modern vehicle is more than a computer on wheels. The motor, batteries and electronic components must work together effectively in the final application. We provide comprehensive solutions for electric and hybrid powertrain applications, both with our own components and through our partnerships with industry leading suppliers. We understand how battery chemistry and technology intersects with reliability, performance and price.
The high voltages and currents that are present in electric and hybrid vehicles present unique challenges that must be considered when designing circuits for these applications. This is vastly different from the comparatively quiet environments of other applications, such as consumer electronics. Our team specializes in designing custom PCBs with stringent operational requirements in electrically noisy environments. Our clients push boundaries, and we provide the technology that lets them do it.
Embedded Software Development
Today's vehicles employ many embedded control modules that include battery management systems, vehicle/engine control units and body controllers. These devices require software that operates safely and reliably in real time. Using C/C++ or Matlab/Simulink, we provide embedded software solutions that run on our hardware platforms or other off-the-shelf control modules.
