ST to produce Silicon Carbide (SiC) energy MOSFETs for BorgWarner’s Viper energy module to help Volvo Automobiles’ journey in the direction of being absolutely electrical by 2030
BorgWarner will use the SiC cube of their traction inverter platforms for a number of present and future Volvo Automobile BEVs
STMicroelectronics will provide BorgWarner Inc. with the newest third era 750V silicon carbide (SiC) energy MOSFETs cube for his or her proprietary Viper-based energy module. This energy module is utilized in BorgWarner’s traction inverter platforms for a number of present and future Volvo Automobiles electrical autos.
“This collaboration will give Volvo Automobiles the chance to additional improve the attractiveness of our electrical autos with longer vary and sooner charging. It’s going to additionally help us on our journey in the direction of being absolutely electrical by 2030 and strengthen our elevated vertical integration and our management of important parts,” says Javier Varela, Chief Working Officer & Deputy CEO, Volvo Automobiles.
“BorgWarner is happy to accomplice with ST to produce our longstanding buyer Volvo Automobiles with inverters for his or her subsequent era of BEV platforms,” says Stefan Demmerle, Vice President of BorgWarner Inc. and President and Basic Supervisor, PowerDrive Methods.
To completely leverage the efficiency of ST’s SiC MOSFET cube, BorgWarner collaborated carefully with ST’s technical workforce to match their die with BorgWarner’s Viper energy change, thereby maximizing inverter efficiency and delivering a compact and cost-effective structure. The collaboration between the businesses gives the high-volume functionality that’s required by the rapidly rising EV market.
“Our collaboration with BorgWarner, a number one world automotive provider in electrification, will allow Volvo Automobiles to supply their prospects superior automobile efficiency and vary,” says Marco Monti, President, Automotive and Discrete Group, STMicroelectronics. “We’re dedicated to increasing SiC capability and to reinforcing our SiC provide, together with via vertical integration, as we ramp up volumes to help our world automotive and industrial prospects of their shift to electrification and better effectivity.”
ST’s high-volume STPOWER SiC merchandise are manufactured in its fabs in Italy, and Singapore, with superior packaging and testing at its back-end amenities in Morocco and China. In October 2022, ST introduced it might broaden its broad bandgap manufacturing capability with a brand new built-in SiC substrate manufacturing facility in Catania, house to the corporate’s energy semiconductor experience and the positioning of built-in analysis, growth, and manufacturing of SiC.
