Energy Management System for EV
ampEMU - The 'AMP Energy Management Unit'
Combined energy management solution with charging and battery management, connected with cloud for electric vehicle applications.
THE AMP Energy management unit
AMP’s Energy Management Unit, ampEMU, is a combination
of a DC-DC, On-Board Charger (OBC), and Power
Distribution Unit (PDU), with fast charge capabilities (500A), all-in-one.
This energy management system for EVs complies with the North American Charging Standard (NACS) by Tesla, Combined Charging System (CCS), and CHAdeMO. It is a combined energy management solution having the entire AMP EMS, the Energy Management System developed by AMP, embedded in it.
ampEMU utilizes the latest SiC technology from Wolfspeed to drastically reduce the power electronics packaging volume. This extremely compact unit will save space and reduce the vehicle’s overall weight, improving range.
Experience performance and efficiency like never before with ampEMU, the complete energy management system for electric vehicle applications.
1/3 Size of M3/MY Equivalent
The small size of ampEMU makes it convenient to install, which decreases the overall size of the vehicle's sub-system. As a result, the weight of the vehicle is reduced, which in turn increases its range.
Connected Cloud Analytics
When combined with our cloud-based ampLOGIC system, this unit offers data analysis capabilities that can be used to prevent vehicle degradation and optimize performance..
ASIL C Safety Rated
ampEMU is rated ASIL C for safety, and is highly resilient with exceptional fault tolerance and redundancy.
The high voltage interlock loop protection feature safeguards against the risks of electric shock and fire, while also ensuring compliance with safety standards and protecting the EV battery.
By allowing for a standardized software architecture, it becomes possible to achieve scalability, flexibility, improved quality, and reduced complexity.
The customization capabilities of ampEMU are highly advanced, with the ability to tailor the system to specific needs and integrate seamlessly with existing vehicle infrastructure.
The Gen 1 AMP Energy Management Unit
ampEMU 400, the first generation of the Energy Management System for EVs, integrates an on-board charger (OBC), DC fast charge, DC-DC, and power distribution features into a consolidated unit.
Offering model options that simplify the EV charging interface and HV system integration for your electric vehicle applications, ampEMU 400 is a perfect blend of software and hardware for all electric vehicle applications.
The Gen 2 AMP Energy Management Unit
ampEMU 800, the second generation of the Energy Management System for EVs, combines the Gen 1 energy management unit, ampEMU 400, with BMS and cloud connectivity through ampLOGIC.
This makes it the world’s first-ever Cloud Connected Energy Management System, called the AMP EMS.
“Our team was astonished seeing the capabilities of AMP’s Energy Management System. Within such low density, the unit is capable of taking care of all the energy requirements of the vehicle not only without hampering the performance but by taking it to the next level of efficiency. ampEMU has made our vehicles the best version of themselves.”

Generation 1 of ampEMU, called ampEMU 400, can be deployed in all passenger and commercial vehicles using a 400 V battery architecture.
AMP will be enabling 800 V battery architecture vehicles as well with Generation 2 of ampEMU, ready to be deployed by Q2 2024. It will be compatible with various types of e-mobility applications like marine, and heavy-duty commercial, construction, and agricultural vehicles like trucks, buses, excavators, tractors, and more.
Generation 1 of ampEMU is completely off the shelf and is ready to be deployed for all electric vehicle applications. Generation 2 is currently under development that will be available by Q2 2024.
ampEMU 400 – Generation 1 of AMP Energy Management Unit combines DC DC, OBC, PDU (optional and customizable), and EVCC, with DC fast charging capabilities for a 400 V battery architecture.
ampEMU 800 – Generation 2 of AMP Energy Management Unit combines the generation 1 ampEMU capabilities with a BMS, powering 800 V battery architecture and enabling bi-directional charging (V2G).
The default PDU has 6 high voltage ports – 3 for low current and 3 for high current. However, the PDU can be customized and tailor-made as per project requirements.
ampEMU supports CCS1, CCS2, NACS, CHAdeMO, and ChaoJi charging standards. Furthermore, it supports all charging types – Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3, single phase and 3 Phase AC and DC fast charging.
No. The unit is developed to provide maximum power density in a smaller unit ensuring maximum efficiency and performance.
