Recently Huawei released news that it will release HiCharger car intelligent related product, the new product to be released is Huawei’s DC fast charging module, which indicates that Huawei will start to manufacture electric vehicle charging piles. This enterprise started by communication is one step closer to the tier 1 automotive supplier. Previously, Huawei also spotted its Hicar in-car intelligent vehicle system.
As the core component of the charging pile, the DC fast charging module provides the energy conversion function and determines the stability and reliability of the entire charging station. By converting 380V AC power in the power grid into 200-1000V high-voltage DC power to provide charging services for various types of electric vehicles.
Huawei said that its DC fast charging module has the advantages of high power density, high efficiency, and low noise. The average annual failure rate (0.6%) is much lower than the industry average (3% -5%), and the output power of a single module can reach 30kW. HUAWEI HiCharger DC fast charging module will further strengthen Huawei’s influence in the automotive supply field.
Huawei’s smart electric layout has previously laid the foundation, and has maintained long-term and stable cooperative relations with Chinese and foreign professional enterprises. These include cooperating with Deren Electronics to manufacture the world’s leading high-power DC fast-charging vehicle charger, as well as developing a lithium battery pack protection board test system and power battery pack working condition simulation detection system with Nebula. Huawei hopes to build a “smart electric” platform based on the VDC hardware platform and vehicle control OS, open to all automotive development companies to solve the cost and performance issues of charging, electric drive, and battery management.
At the beginning, Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei once said that Huawei does not “make cars”, but “gives life” to the field. Facts have proved that so far, Huawei has focused more on 5G and information and communication technology, and has become an incremental component supplier for intelligent connected vehicles, in multiple fields such as intelligent network connection, intelligent driving, intelligent cockpit, intelligent electric and cloud services Provide products and services to OEMs.
In terms of intelligent driving, Huawei has created an intelligent driving operating system and MDC intelligent driving platform based on Huawei’s Ascend chip, and will be the first to carry out the research and development of lidar and millimeter wave radar required for unmanned vehicles; in terms of intelligent cockpit, Huawei is based on Kirin chip and the Harmony operating system have created an intelligent cockpit platform; in terms of cloud services, Huawei has used 4G, 5G, and V2X technologies to implement vehicle-road collaboration and vehicle-to-vehicle connection management.
