Sendyne and the University Of Toronto enter research agreement for battery systems technology to accelerate EV and grid storage applications
Sendyne Corp., a New York-based semiconductor developer, and the University of Toronto have entered into a research agreement to develop systems and electronics with the goal of accelerating the adoption of large scale battery storage for Electric Vehicles (EV) and utility-scale battery packs.
This research project will implement silicon designs to significantly improve the cost and performance of such battery storage systems.
Sendyne has been developing semiconductors, systems and technology specifically targeted for battery management systems. Sendyne is providing its patented technology as well as access to intellectual property, development tools and scientific expertise. The University of Toronto has developed significant technology on power supplies and power management systems which will be utilized for this project.
Leading the project team is Professor Aleksandar Prodic, from the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department of the University of Toronto and the founder of the Laboratory for Power Management and Integrated SMPS, where the development will take place. Dr. Prodic, a recipient of several IEEE awards and distinctions, is an expert in power system design.
