Delphi Technologies launches Generation 7 electronics controllers for medium & heavy-duty commercial vehicles

  • European, US and Asian truck manufacturers specify Delphi Technologies Generation 7 electronic controllers for engine, transmission, and after treatment.
  • Five CV OEMs have already selected the controller for its flexibility, security and reliability.
  • Delphi Technologies is shipping 10 billion lines of powertrain software code per day.

London, United Kingdom - Wednesday, 19 September 2018 - Delphi Technologies, one of the world's leading suppliers of advanced fuel injection and control systems, is launching the latest version of its electronic controllers as a key pillar of its powertrain strategy for commercial vehicles. The Generation 7 electronic controllers enable maximum flexibility since they can be used in any number of applications depending on the customers' requirements. Delphi Technologies can either provide the electronics hardware for a customer to use with their own software, include off-the-shelf powertrain algorithms, or develop a fully bespoke software package for an OEM to operate their specific powertrain system. 

The company's Generation 7 powertrain controllers are optimised for the demanding requirements of Heavy and Medium Duty applications, including trucks, busses and off-highway. The Generation 7 controller is a highly flexible control platform that uses Delphi-designed ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) to reduce size and cost while providing class-leading features and flexibility. Delphi's DIFlex ASIC offers state of the art fuel injection waveform control and diagnostics to ensure that the needs of future demanding combustion systems can be met. 

"Flexibility is particularly important in the CV market where there are many types of applications, each requiring different features," notes Delphi Technologies commercial vehicle sales director Richard Green. "The Delphi Technologies Gen 7 architecture is designed to provide very high levels of software control, allowing our in-house software engineers to develop greater synergies between hardware systems, to make optimisation faster and more affordable, and even to accommodate short-notice changes."

The Generation 7 controller also includes the latest state of the art cybersecurity protection necessary for vehicle manufacturers to offer over-the-air software updates allowing system upgrades to be downloaded quickly overnight, without interrupting the vehicle's service schedule. The Generation 7 controller is expected to be in production for the 2020 model year.
