MPA’s D&V Electronics To Collaborate With NI Corp.

This strategic initiative will leverage D&V’s advanced power emulation products with NI’s industry-leading control, automation, and measurement products, says MPA.

Motorcar Parts of America (MPA) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary D&V Electronics, based in Woodbridge, Ontario, has established a collaboration agreement with Austin, Texas-based NI to market Power Hardware-in-the-loop (Power-HIL) emulator-based test solutions, including inverter test applications, to automotive electric vehicle manufacturers for electrified powertrain development.

Power-HIL testing is critical to the design of electric vehicles – enabling developers to achieve highly accurate, repeatable, cost-effective tests that would be impractical to perform with traditional hardware testing. This testing also decreases the design cycle time required of OEMs and Tier1 automotive companies and allows faster market entry.

“This strategic initiative will leverage D&V’s advanced power emulation products with NI’s industry-leading control, automation, and measurement products to provide a differentiated solution within the global electric vehicle market,” said Selwyn Joffe, chairman, president and CEO of Motorcar Parts of America.

NI & D&V Teams will take advantage of the recently opened D&V Electronics Detroit Technical Center to host OEM, Tier1 and other prospective customers on-site or via remote sessions. Additionally, the technical center will be used for joint system development that will include fully functional emulator test systems and NI measurement, automation and control hardware and software.

“We’re thrilled to partner with D&V on this new collaboration. D&V’s leading-edge power emulation technology and integration service expertise are a perfect complement to NI’s model-based validation and control capability within our EV HIL solutions,” said Chad Chesney, vice president and general manager of NI’s Transportation Business. “By connecting our technology platforms, this partnership will help our customers accelerate the path towards Vision Zero.”
