Electric Vehicle Charging Interface Initiative Welcomes STMicroelectronics

Berlin – January 31, 2017 – The Charging Interface Initiative e. V., CharIN, an open association founded to develop and establish the Combined Charging System (CCS) as the standard for charging all kinds of battery-powered electric vehicles, and STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications and a pioneer in making vehicles safer, greener, and more connected, have announced that ST has become a member of the initiative.

With an unparalleled portfolio of automotive and secure microcontrollers, industry-leading sensing and power technologies—including advanced silicon carbide (SiC), and top-tier secure connectivity expertise, ST brings to CharIN its unique ability to address and industrialize sophisticated, secure, yet easy-to-use interfaces for hybrid and electric-vehicle (HEV/EV) charging.

 

“ST brings valuable automotive, security, sensing, power, and processing expertise to CharIN, along with its strong relationships across the industry that complement and supplement the already-strong CharIN roster of members and partners,” said Claas Bracklo, Chairman of the CharIN e.V.

 

“Standardizing the technical setup and charging of hybrid-electric and electric vehicles globally will reduce range anxiety and be a powerful accelerant for EV adoption,” said Marco Monti, Executive Vice President Automotive and Discrete Group, STMicroelectronics. “ST’s long experience, leadership, and broad portfolio of products in the automotive and power-electronics sectors, together with our recognized strengths in sensors, secure payment and secure communication, mean that we are perfectly placed to contribute strongly to the CharIN initiative and to help meet industry needs by delivering the technology to the market at the appropriate time.”

 

About CharIN

The Charging Interface Initiative e.V. – abbreviated to CharIN e.V. – is a registered association with more than 60 international members from the whole automotive value chain. It is open to all interested parties. Founded in the year 2015 the association has a head office in Berlin, Germany and regional offices in Asia as well as North America. The three primary aims are to roll out and establish the Combined Charging System (CCS) as the global standard for charging battery-powered electric vehicles of all kind, to draw up requirements for the evolution of charging-related standards and set up a conformance verification system for use by manufacturers implementing the CCS in their products as well as to promote the CCS standard worldwide.
