Ana­log Devices and TWAICE join forces to advance bat­tery life­cy­cle optimization

Bat­tery ana­lyt­ics soft­ware expert TWAICE today announced a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Ana­log Devices, Inc. a glob­al semi­con­duc­tor com­pa­ny and soft­ware solu­tions provider. The aim of the coop­er­a­tion is to mas­ter the chal­lenges of bat­tery life cycle opti­miza­tion. The unique com­bi­na­tion of Ana­log Devices’ advanced sen­sor tech­nol­o­gy and wire­less con­nec­tiv­i­ty with TWAICE’s bat­tery analy­sis soft­ware will ben­e­fit cus­tomers in the mobil­i­ty and ener­gy sec­tors. The alliance will help to sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduce war­ran­ty risks and recalls, opti­mize bat­tery life and increase the val­ue of batteries.

Strong duo for more sustainability 

Ana­log Devices is a glob­al leader in the design, man­u­fac­ture and mar­ket­ing of a broad port­fo­lio of high-per­for­mance ana­log mixed-sig­nal and dig­i­tal sig­nal pro­cess­ing solu­tions used in vir­tu­al­ly all types of elec­tron­ic devices. The com­pa­ny is also the mar­ket leader in bat­tery man­age­ment solu­tions. The col­lab­o­ra­tion with Munich-based soft­ware com­pa­ny TWAICE, whose soft­ware plat­form offers end-to-end bat­tery analy­sis solu­tions, enables the opti­miza­tion of the entire bat­tery life cycle.

Mobil­i­ty is at a turn­ing point: elec­tri­fied dri­ves are replac­ing com­bus­tion engines. From 2035, only zero-emis­sion new cars will be reg­is­tered in Europe, as envis­aged by the new Euro­pean Green Deal. The reli­a­bil­i­ty and cost-effec­tive­ness of bat­ter­ies are crit­i­cal to the wide­spread adop­tion of renew­able ener­gy and elec­tric vehi­cles. The per­for­mance and life­time of bat­ter­ies play a key role in the sus­tain­abil­i­ty of the solu­tions in which they are used, but assess­ing them is often a chal­lenge. “Pre­cise data com­bined with advanced pre­dic­tive bat­tery ana­lyt­ics will shed light on what is crit­i­cal to unlock­ing undis­cov­ered poten­tial across the val­ue chain,” said Dr. Stephan Rohr, co-CEO of TWAICE.

A col­lab­o­ra­tion for the entire life cycle 

“The bat­tery is the pow­er source for any elec­tric vehi­cle, as well as a valu­able asset,” said Patrick Mor­gan, vice pres­i­dent of auto­mo­tive at Ana­log Devices. “Togeth­er with TWAICE, we deliv­er inno­v­a­tive, end-to-end bat­tery life­cy­cle solu­tions that cre­ate sig­nif­i­cant val­ue for our cus­tomers and sup­port a cir­cu­lar economy.”

Exten­sion of the val­ue chain 

The aim of the col­lab­o­ra­tion is to pro­vide a holis­tic life­cy­cle solu­tion for auto­mo­tive man­u­fac­tur­ers with inte­grat­ed hard­ware and soft­ware. A com­plete end-to-end solu­tion is offered with state-of-the-art bat­tery mea­sure­ments via a wire­less bat­tery man­age­ment sys­tem. Ana­log Devices’ sen­sor tech­nol­o­gy deliv­ers data and data qual­i­ty that was pre­vi­ous­ly unavail­able. TWAICE can pro­vide the crit­i­cal insights into bat­tery per­for­mance that auto­mo­tive com­pa­nies around the world want. The inte­gra­tion of sen­sor and com­mu­ni­ca­tion solu­tions from Ana­log Devices cre­ates an ide­al data basis. The result­ing fore­casts enable qual­i­fied state­ments to be made about the val­ue and usabil­i­ty of the bat­tery at any point in its life cycle.

“Work­ing with Ana­log Devices is a crit­i­cal mile­stone for us in expand­ing our cus­tomer out­reach and launch­ing new­ly devel­oped prod­ucts glob­al­ly, as the com­pa­ny has decades of mar­ket exper­tise and a large sales orga­ni­za­tion in the auto­mo­tive and ener­gy indus­tries,” said Dr. Michael Bau­mann, co-CEO of TWAICE.

About TWAICE

TWAICE pro­vides pre­dic­tive ana­lyt­ics soft­ware that opti­mizes both the devel­op­ment and oper­a­tion of lithi­um-ion bat­ter­ies. The core tech­nol­o­gy of TWAICE is the dig­i­tal twin — soft­ware that uses arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence to deter­mine bat­tery con­di­tion and pre­dict aging and per­for­mance. This makes it pos­si­ble to make com­plex bat­tery sys­tems more effi­cient, sus­tain­able and reli­able. As a lead­ing provider of bat­tery ana­lyt­ics soft­ware to glob­al mobil­i­ty and ener­gy com­pa­nies, TWAICE increas­es the dura­bil­i­ty, effi­cien­cy and sus­tain­abil­i­ty of prod­ucts that dri­ve tomor­row’s econ­o­my.
