Most automotive power delivery architectures are based on a centralized, multi-KW converter that feeds 12V around the vehicle to 12V loads. These converters are bulky and heavy which creates more strain on the engine and more CO2 emissions. By adding a 48V power delivery network (PDN) to hybrid vehicles and deploying a decentralized power architecture, a greater reduction of CO2 emissions can be realized. See how this approach lowers weight and cost, improves efficiency and reduces emissions.
