NI completes acquisition of Heinzinger EV power business
NI has acquired the Electric Vehicle (EV) Systems business Heinzinger Automotive in Rosenheim, Germany.
The deal allows automotive engineers to quickly integrate Heinzinger’s power electronics equipment into their battery cells and labs. As car makers ramp up new electric powertrain technologies and faster product development cycles, the power electronics can be coupled with NI’s software-connected approach to rapidly scale production.
The deal follows the recent announcement of NI’s acquisition of NH Research, a leader in high-power test and measurement applications. The acquisitions further expand NI’s portfolio of electrification, battery test and sustainable energy capabilities. By providing critical power level test systems, NI will enable automotive engineers to test for safety, performance, and durability requirements and emulate real-world in-use scenarios in various environmental conditions, even when a physical battery prototype is not available.
“The EV revolution has provided significant opportunities for the automotive industry to address global climate issues, but enabling this all-electric future also requires a new engineering infrastructure for the market,” said Drita Roggenbuck, senior vice president and general manager of the Transportation business at NI. “The expansion of NI’s electrification capabilities through the investment in Heinzinger furthers the transformation of test from a bottleneck in the production process to a key enabler in accelerating innovation and deployment of this critical technology.”
“As we look to help our global customers solve some of the most challenging problems in the EV industry, NI welcomes the addition of the talented Heinzinger EV team,” said Noah Reding, vice president and general manager of NI’s Transportation Validation business. “Heinzinger’s deep domain expertise, strong industry reputation, and well-established European presence will play a critical role in expanding NI’s offerings to our customers.”
