Electrifying (the) future

Fossil fuels and alarming emission levels? We can do better than that!

One out of many essential steps towards an energy-efficient world lies in growing the popularity - and consequently the use - of electrified two-, three- and four-wheel vehicles. New materials and technologies enable nowadays greater power efficiency, smaller size, lighter weight, and lower cost solutions. Consumers look for affordable, clean transportation alternatives to address congestion, poor air quality, and lack of mobility.

Want to play a key role in accelerating the transition to e-mobility with your products? Then turn to a true expert, a leader in power, sensing and security solutions: Infineon.

LEVs: an increasingly important EV sub-category

Three-hurdles slowing mass deployment

When focusing on the mass deployment of all-electric vehicles and gasoline-electric hybrids the challenges currently recognized can be summarized in three main hurdles:

  • The high initial investment,
  • The limited charging infrastructure available,
  • And consumer misperceptions about their operation.

In other words, battery system cost, battery density, range limitations and charging constraints continue to be impediments to the adoption.

The rise of LEVs

The named obstacles have become a trigger for the evolvement of another segment in the EV market: light electric vehicles (LEVs). Compared with other EVs as well as with conventional gasoline-powered vehicles, they are extremely low-priced what makes them affordable even to the financially underprivileged! They can be charged from the grid (e.g. power plugs in private homes) and do not necessarily require installation of a specific charging infrastructure. And due to an extremely simple configuration both - their functioning and handling - are easy to understand. Targets are clearly those driving short distances at lower speed not holding a driving license as for LEVs no certification - neither for the vehicle, nor for the driver - is legally stipulated until today. Depending on the purpose of use there are variants with and without space for carry-on items. And most importantly, they fulfill the zero emissions mandate.

Currently, the LEV market in units is six to ten times larger than the one for plug-in EVs. Already in the near future, LEVs are expected to be highly integrated with automated vehicle technology, i.e. sensors. The industry has seen an incredibly fast rate of conversion from internal combustion engines to full electrical drives (e.g. approximately 62 % of the number of forklift units sold in 2018 have already been electrical).

Low power light electric vehicles

(power level: 1 kW - 10 kW; value drivers: system cost, power density)

Low power LEVs can be separated from the rest of higher power LEVs by the following characteristics:

  • power level: 1 kW - 10 kW
  • voltage range: 24 V - 72 V
  • two- and three-wheelers
  • main purpose: short distance passenger transport
  • value drivers: system cost, power density


Target applications:

  • E-scooters (standing / self-balancing and folding types)
  • E-bikes
  • E-three-wheelers


In contrast to the relatively small volumes of EVs, millions of electrified two-wheelers have already been sold worldwide. The environmentally friendly vehicles offer a very high degree of mobility combined with convenience and other fun factors. All that at much lower initial and operational costs compared to a typical EV. Emission-free driving versus congested city traffic - governments around the globe are alerted that it is time for greener politics in favor of light e-mobility (e.g. supporting innovative concepts such as dockless e-scooter sharing services or downtown traffic area accessible only via e-two-wheelers).

Top performance versus cost optimization

When it comes to high volume production, the range and speed of low power LEV applications are distinguishing factors. No matter if customers work on designs with either top performance targets or rather concentrate on cost optimization, Infineon is prepared to deliver the products they require. With best-in-class solutions for motor control, our customers are maximizing levels of space and/or volume savings (e.g. essential for two-wheelers). StrongIRFET™ MOSFETs, to the contrary, are to be chosen for the development of cost optimized solutions whenever space and weight do not form limiting parameters (e.g. for three-wheelers).

Electrical two-wheelers – skyrocketing sales worldwide

Even industry insight professionals did not anticipate the speed at which the Western European e-bike market has been growing over the past years. The share of e-bikes of the total bicycle market has become substantial - and is expected to rise up to 30-40 % in many countries. Instead of being a specialty recreational device as it was a couple of years ago e-bikes in Europe are evolving to a standard bicycle product, especially for work commuters who do not want to show up to work sweating all over. The popularity of these two-wheelers has grown with the significant reduction of weight and some variants are even foldable. Another influencing factor has been the price drop due to the lower cost of lithium ion batteries which are more and more replacing the former standard being lead acid ones. The switch in battery type does also open up new markets in countries where the saturation level had already been reached. With the lithium technology batteries are getting smaller and higher voltages are possible. Last but not least, people are more prone to replace a car with an e-bike than with a regular bicycle.

Fluctuating fuel prices have led to a decrease in the sales of fuel-powered vehicles and continue spurring sales of e-scooters (two- and three-wheeled). The latter are also supported by government subsidies in European and Asian regions. Moreover, OEMs enhancing their product portfolios are fostering global market growth. Same as for e-bikes, declining battery costs will have a positive effect on opportunities for market players. And not to forget about increasing product demand as consequence of introducing more and more e-scooter sharing services - one of many aspects of the sustainable urban mobility trend.

At this moment in time there are only two dissuasive concerns users have: slow charging time and limited range. Manufacturers are intensively working on solutions to overcome any existing barriers of adoption of e-scooters. Different battery technologies, solar power, battery swapping stations plus the development of a supercharger network are only few examples - anything that provides more convenience to the consumer.

iMOTION™ - Digital motor control for e-bikes and e-scooters (see also recommended products)

One particular set of products suitable for low power two-wheelers such as e-bikes and folding e-scooters are Infineon's iMOTION™ motor control ICs. Integrated into these ICs are all the control and analog interface functions required for sensor-less, field-oriented control (FOC) of PM motors using DC link or leg shunt current measurements. In addition, they feature Infineon's patented and field-proven motor control engine (MCE) that eliminates software coding from the motor control algorithm development process. Implementing a variable speed drive is reduced to configuring the MCE for the respective motor. Assisted by powerful tools like MCEWizard and MCEDesigner it is possible to have the motor up and running in less than an hour. By comprising both, the required hardware and software to perform sensor-less control of a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM), iMOTION™ ICs provide the highest energy efficient motor system with the lowest system cost for the named applications.

Off-board versus on-board battery chargers

Depending on their power requirements, LEV batteries can be charged either directly from the grid (i.e. any standard wall outlet) through a dedicated on-board charger or through the use of a low cost off-board charger.

Off-board chargers are more suitable if:

  • The LEV can be easily located / moved close to the charger (even with an empty battery!) (i.e. e-bikes, folding e-scooters)
  • The LEV battery does not require a complex battery management system, e.g. low cost sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries (i.e. low cost scooters, electrical wheelchairs
  • Whenever charging requires very high power, because of limitations of weight/volume on the vehicle itself - as is the case for electrical forklifts

AC on-board chargers are more suitable if:

  • More flexibility in charging is needed (no special infrastructure has to be installed, no need to carry additional charging equipment) (i.e. low speed EVs (quadricycles), golf carts, small electric lift trucks)
  • More complex battery management systems are used, e.g. for Lithium ion batteries (i.e. high power e-scooters)

The on-board charger's performance is evaluated by its power-conversion efficiency and power quality (i.e. total harmonic distortion and power factor). As for all items installed in the vehicle, size (the smaller, the better), weight (the lighter, the better), and lifetime (the longer, the better) are critical parameters. Conventional on-board chargers usually have a two-stage structure consisting of a power factor correction (PFC) stage and a DC-DC power-conversion stage. This specific structure brings along major drawbacks such as low efficiency and circuit complexity, and a bulky intermediate DC link capacitor. Due to high current flowing through the intermediate DC link capacitor significant power loss is caused, what considerably reduces the capacitor lifetime, eventually leading to capacitor failure. As an alternative to the two-stage structure single-stage approaches are being investigated with the aim to eliminate the PFC stage and reduce the DC link capacitance.

Energy efficiency – critical factor with further pick-up in sales

At this moment, the battery charger market for LEVs is mostly cost driven, as the majority of LEVs sold today are low cost two- and three-wheelers. However, considering that the number of LEVs is expected to grow further, the efficiency becomes particularly important. Especially in countries with weaker power grids every percentage point of efficiency increase translates into significant energy savings. A noteworthy relief of the national power networks!

Infineon’s LEV battery charger solutions

Infineon's LEV on-board and off-board battery charger solutions comprised of power MOSFETs, gate driver ICs, PWM/flyback controllers, integrated power stage ICs and microcontrollers are optimized to fit any system.

Customers benefit from small form factors, best-in-class performance ratio (attractive pricing with competitive long term price down roadmap), easy-to-use technologies, powerful and reliable components.

OPTIGA™ Trust – Authentication at its best (see also recommended products)

Another particular aspect of interest for chargers is their close connection with the type of battery stacks that they are supposed to charge. Practically, any LEV manufacturer selects different variants of batteries that best fit its own, very specific applications. The battery chargers must hence be designed with the proper charging algorithms for the corresponding battery stacks chosen by the LEV manufacturer. It is not advisable to connect any charger type to any battery! Otherwise there can be a significant risk of damaging the batteries, and void the manufacturer's warranty. Infineon's OPTIGA™ Trust security solution is easy to use and implement, and will ensure that only the right type of charger is used in connection with a certain type of battery, reducing the risk of hazardous damage/fires.
