Software from New Eagle and Hardware from UQM
For ‘Higher Ease of Integration to the End Customer’
UQM Technologies and New Eagle are collaborating on electric drivelines, promising “total electric drive solutions for vehicle manufacturers which will be available for automotive, light- and medium-duty vehicles, as well as fleet marine applications.”
UQM develops and manufactures power-dense, high-efficiency electric motors, generators, power electronic controllers and fuel cell compressors.
New Eagle applies model-based design to embedded systems, and has progressed from engineering to the supply of controls for production vehicles.
Their goal is to provide “turn-key solutions for rapid prototype development that will lead to successful production programs” using UQM’s PowerPhase hardware and New Eagle’s supervisory control software.
“Working with UQM brings a higher ease of integration to the end customer,” New Eagle president Rich Swortzel says in the UQM announcement. “UQM has an impressive record of successful performance at a very competitive price point,” he said.
‘A Growing Need in the Marketplace’
“Our electric commercial drivetrain customers will benefit from this combination.”
“UQM has seen a growing need in the marketplace for integrated drivetrain solutions,” said UQM president and CEO Joe Mitchell. “We see this collaboration as a great step towards providing the end customers with a variety of integrated platforms by vehicle class that will lead to more commercial electric vehicles on the road.”
