How to boost Level-3 EV charging with the right connectivity

Fast charging entails the transferring a large amount of energy into the battery at a high rate. The method used to charge the battery, as well as the battery chemistry, determines the power level at which a cell can accept a charge. Several approaches have been developed to prevent or decrease harm caused by significant energy flow at high power. Constant-current/constant-voltage (CC/CV) and pulse current charging are the most common charging methodologies.

How to improve analog to digital converter accuracy

The accuracy of an ADC (Analog to Digital Converter) exhibits how close you are to represent the true signal in your measurement. It is determined by the DC specifications for gain, offset, and linearity and is affected by parameters associated with voltage source, I/O switching, PCB layout and analog source impedance.

How to isolate between high & low voltage using optocoupler

Devices used in the control of high voltage / high power equipment must have good electrical isolation between the high voltage output and low voltage input. Relying on a layer of silicon oxide a few atoms thick to provide the necessary insulation in such conditions is not a real option.
