Driving Innovation: How GHSP and Allegro MicroSystems are Shaping the Future of Electric Vehicles

In the rapidly evolving world of electric vehicles (EVs), GHSP, a leading provider of mechanical and electromechanical systems, has been on the forefront of innovation. Their latest project, the eVibe, is a groundbreaking technology that aims to transform the driving experience for EV enthusiasts.

The challenge faced by GHSP was to create a solution that would address a growing market demand. While the quiet and smooth operation of electric motors has been a selling point for many EV owners, there's a segment of the market that craves a more immersive driving experience – one that mimics the familiar feel and vibrations of a traditional internal combustion engine.

To bring this vision to life, GHSP President Dan Dawiedczyk turned to our team at Allegro, knowing our leadership in automotive-grade sensor and power management solutions could enhance their vision for the future.

The key to the eVibe system lies in the precision control of the motors that generate the desired vibrations. Allegro's low latency Switching 100 V Half-Bridge MOSFET Driver (A89500) and High-Temperature Hall-Effect Latch for Low Voltage Applications (APS12215) were critical components in achieving this level of control.

"Allegro's technologies were a perfect fit and elevated our end product," says Brad Sanderson, systems engineer at GHSP. "When we work with Allegro, we know we're going to get exactly what we need at the highest quality."

The A89500 motor driver offers best-in-class performance, with a strong gate drive that allows for high power density and fast switching. Its unmatched transient robustness and wide input voltage range make it a standout solution in the market. The APS12215 Hall-Effect latch, on the other hand, provides unrivaled high-temperature performance and stable switching capabilities, enabling the eVibe system to precisely track and monitor the position of the motors' unbalanced weights, ultimately leading to a more realistic vibration experience.

Our partnership with GHSP has been a driving force behind the eVibe's success. Over the years, we have collaborated on various projects, with GHSP relying on our technologies for many of its flagship products, including oil and coolant pumps. These system-level innovations from our Allegro team have been crucial in helping GHSP bring the eVibe to life.

"Together, Allegro and GHSP equals innovation," Dawiedczyk says. "Combining our expertise, industry experience, and long history of delivering quality products has brought both our companies' success. It's a winning partnership, and we plan to continue working with Allegro for years to come."

The impact of the eVibe system extends beyond just the driving experience. It represents a shift in the way EV owners engage with their vehicles, providing them with a more immersive and connected feel. This innovation has the potential to reshape the EV market, catering to a wider range of customer preferences and further driving the adoption of electric vehicles.

As the world continues to embrace the transition to electric mobility, partnerships like the one between GHSP and Allegro MicroSystems will play a crucial role in shaping the future of the industry. By combining their expertise, technological prowess, and a shared vision for innovation, they are paving the way for a more engaging and fulfilling driving experience for EV enthusiasts everywhere.
