TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity, announced today that its high-performance connectivity solutions will power the EVo 4.0 electric car, recently unveiled by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay Racing team. The car will compete with more than 100 colleges and universities from around the world at Formula Student 2015 in Silverstone Circuit, United Kingdom, July 9 -12.

The EVo 4.0 can accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 3.5 seconds, and reach a top speed of 111 kmph. The electric car will include a number of TE products and technologies to improve safety, efficiency and performance, including:

  • AMP+ HVP 800 headers – touch-proof, two-position high-current headers designed to safely transport high currents and voltages through hybrid and electric vehicles
  • AMP+ manual service disconnect – a tool-free solution for disconnecting the internal high-voltage (HV) battery pack and protecting battery pack HV cables from short circuiting. The product protects service technicians and emergency response teams when working with or near the HV battery and components
  • High-current relays – safely deliver electricity to the vehicle to charge the battery
  • High-voltage contactors – provide safe disconnection and connection of the traction battery in hybrid, electric and fuel cell vehicles, as well as charging systems

“We believe in championing the next generation of engineers and have partnered with several institutions globally to encourage and excite students about science and innovation,” said Vishwanath S, director, Transportation, TE in India. “We are confident that the IIT Bombay racing team will make India proud, and we wish the team the best of luck for the race.”
“We are thankful for TE’s support with high-performance technologies including connectors and cable assemblies to help us make the EVo 4.0 an extremely reliable and smart machine ready for Formula Student 2015,” said Dharmendra Maurya, chief electrical head, IIT Bombay Racing.
TE delivers electric mobility solutions that can be counted on through temperature fluctuations, constant vibration and years of wear and tear. From battery technology that reduces size and costs to safe, high-quality components for charging stations, TE helps make electric mobility a reality.

TE Connectivity (NYSE: TEL) is a $14 billion global technology leader. Our connectivity and sensor solutions are essential in today’s increasingly connected world. We collaborate with engineers to transform their concepts into creations – redefining what’s possible using intelligent, efficient and high-performing TE products and solutions proven in harsh environments.

Assetz Property Group Chooses Imergy as Energy Storage Partner for its Off-Grid Warehouse Renewable Energy System Initiative

Bengaluru, Karnataka, India – Business Wire India

Assetz Property Group (APG), a Singapore headquartered property development company, announced today that it has selected Imergy Power Systems, a leader in advanced energy storage solutions, as its partner for its off-grid warehouse renewable energy system initiative.

The goal of APG’s initiative is to develop off-grid, renewable energy-powered systems at its new and existing Indian industrial warehouses. The initiative will help APG minimize energy outages at its warehouses, lower its energy procurement costs and reduce its carbon footprint.

APG currently plans to install its first off-grid renewable energy system at a new warehouse located in the Indian state of Karnataka.

APG selected Imergy as its energy storage partner because Imergy’s low-cost, high-performance vanadium flow-battery technology:

  • Provides reliable and consistent power with fast charge and discharge times.
  • Features unlimited cycle life.
  • Can operate in temperatures ranging from -20 degrees to 55 degrees Celsius (-4 degrees to 131 degrees Fahrenheit) with no degradation in performance.

India’s rapidly growing e-commerce market is leading APG to expand its logistics warehousing business in the country. Over the next five years APG intends to invest and acquire industrial land across Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and parts of Maharashtra for their logistics warehousing business. “APG’s off-grid warehouse energy system initiative will demonstrate that the real estate industry can take a leadership position in India’s shift towards a cleaner, more reliable energy infrastructure,” said Ben Salmon, CEO Assetz Property Group. “The need of the hour in India and around the world is clean energy solutions, and as a responsible corporate citizen, APG will continue to adopt cost-effective solutions that reduce our carbon footprint.”

“APG’s use of off-grid, renewable energy for its industrial warehouses will help it significantly reduce its environmental impact,” said Bill Watkins, CEO of Imergy. “By providing APG with a way to store the energy generated by their renewable energy systems, Imergy’s vanadium flow batteries will help APG maximize the value of their investments in off-grid renewable energy.”

OptiMOS™ 300 V Offers High Efficiency and New Design Possibilities in Hard Switching Applications

Munich, Germany – Business Wire India

Infineon Technologies (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY) extends its medium voltage MOSFET portfolio with OptiMOSTM 300 V, setting a new standard in the Power MOSFET market. In doing so, the company confirms its position as market leader enabling energy efficient solutions in applications such as telecom systems, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), motor control, industrial power supplies and DC/AC inverters.
The new OptiMOS 300 V helps system designers to increase power density and reduce cost with the highest level of reliability. Ultimately, for the end user, this translates into energy cost savings. For example, in hard switching applications such as AC/DC converters OptiMOS 300 V cuts energy losses by 50 percent. This allows for higher switching frequencies and, consequently, passive component and solution size reduction. Furthermore, OptiMOS 300 V can provide voltage spike headroom for better reliability, safety and ease of design in a 60 V telecom rectifier. The number of stages required in cascaded high voltage switch mode power supplies can also be reduced. Additionally, 110 V AC UPS can now be realized with OptiMOS 300 V.

 “With 300 V blocking capability, Infineon extends the benchmark OptiMOS technology into a so far non-mainstream voltage class to support evolving applications such as multilevel converters,” says Richard Kuncic, Vice President & General Manager Business Line DC/DC at Infineon Technologies AG. “Due to superior performance of OptiMOS technology and the wide application spectrum, we expect this voltage class to become a new standard in the power MOSFET market.”
Incorporating fast diode technology, OptiMOS 300 V offers 70 percent lower reverse recovery charge Qrr compared to the next best alternative device. This characteristic leads to smooth body diode behavior and minimizes voltage overshoot. OptiMOS 300 V in the TO-220 package provides the industry’s best RDS(on) with more than 58 percent lower Figure of Merit (FOM: RDS(on) x Qg) when compared to other available products. This translates directly into lower conduction losses and improved overall efficiency in high current applications such as motor control.


OptiMOS 300 V is available in two packages: D2PAK with RDS(on) of 40.7 m? and TO-220 with RDS(on) of 41 m?. Both packages are in production. Further information about the OptiMOS 300 V is available at
