Tougher emission regulations and expanding in-car electronics are pushing carmakers into increasingly higher-voltage power systems, notes Mary Gustanski, chief technology officer for Delphi Technologies.

In some cases, that can mean adding as much as $1,500 in electronics just to manage the greater power levels involved in plug-in or all-battery powertrains.

Delphi Technologies has seen a huge upswing in business demand for such systems  since the beginning of 2017. Gustanski says the company offers a mix-and-match portfolio of products that can help lower costs and simplify such critical installations.
