Extract more usable energy per pack

With the Dukosi Cell Monitor providing highly accurate, detailed granular information of each cell’s behavior and lifetime status, it offers better insight into a battery pack’s long-term use. This allows the battery management system to extract more usable energy from each cell, while ensuring longevity. Weight reduction and better data quality combined lead can improve the range of an electric vehicle, while still achieving the same reliability and warranty standards.

Reduce weight, improve reliability

Weight reductions and reliability improvements are also achieved beyond the cell by eliminating the complex wiring harness, supplementary PCBs, connectors, module assemblies, and other associated components, creating a simpler, streamlined battery design.

Flexible and scalable architecture

The Dukosi chip-on-cell technology with C-SynQ allows electric vehicle OEMs to scale easily to address different markets with varying battery capacities and chemistries, without making major battery pack changes. Simply add as many cells as needed to the pack and connect using the C-SynQ communication from the Dukosi System Hub residing on the central BMS.

Enhance battery safety

The Dukosi chip-on-cell technology with C-SynQ allows every cell in the battery pack to be monitored 24/7, even when the main BMS controller is in a low-power state. This provides immediate detection of cell-level problems, and earlier fault diagnosis, creating a safer, more reliable electric vehicle. If necessary, the Dukosi solution can wake the host controller at any time, even if the vehicle is unattended during shipping or when parked in a garage, for example.

Accelerate time-to-market

As a scalable solution, Dukosi chip-on-cell enables advanced architectures like cell-to-pack, and provides essential flexibility to accommodate market changes, allowing it to easily adapt to changes in vehicle configurations, thus accelerating time to market.

Promoting a circular economy and sustainable battery chain

By capturing and storing lifetime data on each cell, the Dukosi chip-on-cell technology with C-SynQ promotes a circular economy (reduce, reuse, recycle) throughout the battery value chain. When the Dukosi Cell Monitor is implemented at an early stage in cell manufacturing, the solution offers lifetime traceability and helps OEMs to show compliance with the latest regulations. In addition, the lifetime usage data, including any extreme excursion events are stored, yielding further advantages such as better cell grading, residual value assessment, and safer and more cost-effective second life usage or recycling.

Reduce costs, optimize and automate manufacturing

The Dukosi chip-on-cell technology with C-SynQ requires fewer components per battery pack, which in turn simplifies the manufacturing process and supply chain, reducing materials costs. It can potentially enable a fully automated assembly line by eliminating time-consuming manual assembly line steps such as wires, connectors, and pins.

Electric Aircraft

The Dukosi solution is not just for the road, but also has the potential in the sky, too. Electric aircraft manufacturers can benefit from the reliability and safety gains to fast-track getting their designs off the ground.
