By Mike Osenga19 August 2019

Eaton has announced it has chosen KPIT Pune, India to support the development of next-generation electrified mobility technologies for its eMobility business unit.

Eaton said its collaboration with KPIT initially will focus on developing and deploying technologies, software solutions and platforms for several components, including inverters, on-board chargers, DC-DC converters and power distribution modules.

KPIT has expertise in embedded software, accelerators and stacks, such as AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture (AUTOSAR) and V2G, which enable faster implementation of technologies.

“Eaton continues to build competencies to solve complex problems in eMobility, which OEMs consider critical and transformative,” said Jeff Lowinger, president, eMobility, Eaton. “KPIT is our extended team in this approach, with its sharp focus on mobility and years of experience in electric powertrain technologies. Our strategic alliance with KPIT brings valuable capabilities and technologies to enable manufacturers to develop vehicles that are cleaner and safer and deliver value.”

In March 2018, Eaton announced the formation of its eMobility business unit for electrified vehicles. The eMobility business focuses on three primary areas for both automotive and commercial vehicle customers: intelligent power electronics, power systems, and advanced power distribution and circuit protection.
