CharIN Demos in Action

 

Thanks to collaboration with Volkswagen, Energica, the Charging Interface Initiative (CharIN e.V.) showcased the CCS – combined charging system for electric vehicle / motorcycle charging.

 

Michael Keller, Managing Director of Volkswagen Group in Germany and Vice Chairman of CharIN, explained the investment strategy of OEMs in the electrification infrastructure and how CharIN is driving the standardization around the globe for electrical vehicle charging. He stressed that the auto industry has decided for CCS, and 15 of 20 OEMs confirmed to use it – a clear market leadership. Furthermore, wireless charging is now also a focus of CharIN. This integrated approach for unified worldwide charging communications (conductive and inductive) will increase in volume for the semiconductor industry.

 

Tim Rose, the CharIN USA managing director explained how CharIN can support the US industry with building fast knowledge and capabilities for charging technologies. NXP, the first semiconductor member of CharIN, supports the worldwide standardization initiative and sees a close collaboration between the OEMs and semiconductor industry as essential to develop the future poof solution, explained Lars Reger, NXP Automotive CTO.

 

Since then, all top semiconductor suppliers joined CharIN, confirming the importance of collaboration.
