Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) are the circuits that we see in any device that has electronic functions. They are made of non-conductive materials with conductive lines printed or etched. Electronic components are mounted on the board, and the traces connect the components together to form a working circuit or assembly. PCB hardware design is the process of choosing the right materials and the layout of the PCB to be used. PCB design finds immense use in the vehicle industry, especially in electric vehicles.

Software or Technology Used

  • Print from File to Film
  • Patterning or Etching
  • Photoengraving
  • Testing – Penetration Testing, Thermal Testing, Non-Destructive Testing.

Battery Systems: The battery pack is a critical component of an electric vehicle. QA involves rigorous testing and validation of battery cells, modules, and packs to ensure their performance, energy efficiency, and durability. This includes tests for temperature management, voltage stability, charging and discharging cycles, and safety features like thermal runaway prevention.

Functional and Performance Testing: QA encompasses extensive testing of the vehicle’s performance characteristics, such as acceleration, braking, range, energy efficiency, and handling. Functional tests are conducted to verify the proper operation of systems like regenerative braking, powertrain control, battery management, and user interfaces.

Reliability and Durability: QA involves subjecting EVs to reliability and durability tests to evaluate their performance under various operating conditions and stress factors. This includes testing for temperature extremes, vibrations, shock resistance, corrosion resistance, and extended life cycle testing. Reliability predictions and failure analysis are also conducted.

Safety Standards and Regulations: QA ensures that EV designs comply with safety standards and regulations specific to electric vehicles. This includes considerations for crash safety, fire safety, electrical safety, and compliance with relevant standards such as ISO 26262 (functional safety for automotive systems) and IEC 61508 (functional safety of electrical/electronic/programmable electronic safety-related systems).
