Cree and Delphi Technology Collaborate on Automotive SiC Devices

CREE and Delphi Technologies PLC announced a partnership in automotive silicon carbide (SiC) devices. Cree is a global leader in silicon carbide (SiC) semiconductors, and Delphi Technologies is a global supplier of automotive power propulsion technology. The partnership will provide more opportunities for future electric vehicles (EVs) through the use of silicon carbide (SiC) semiconductor device technology. Fast, smaller, lighter, and more powerful electronic systems.


Delphi Technology CEO Richard F. (Rick) Dauch said: "Delphi Technology is committed to providing pioneering solutions for automakers. Automakers are striving to meet increasingly stringent global emissions regulations and consumers for electric vehicles. (EV) expectation. Our cooperation with Career will create significant benefits for automakers. Eliminate drivers' worries about electric vehicle (EV) mileage, charging time and cost, bringing the entire industry benefit."

As the automotive industry is looking to accelerate the transition from internal combustion engines to electric vehicles (EVs), the adoption of silicon carbide (SiC) based power solutions is growing rapidly across the automotive market. IHS expects sales of high-voltage electric light vehicles to reach 30 million units by 2030 (27% of all global car sales). The electronically controlled inverter is one of the most valuable electrified components, and the efficiency of the electronically controlled inverter can have an industrial transformational impact on many aspects of automotive performance.

Cree CEO Gregg Lowe said: "Creek technology is at the heart of this major shift to electric vehicles (EV). We are committed to supporting the automotive industry from silicon (Si) based design to higher efficiency, higher The transformation of performance silicon carbide (SiC)-based solutions. This collaboration with Delphi Technology will help advance the adoption of silicon carbide (SiC) in the automotive sector. As a global leader in silicon carbide (SiC), Cree continues to expand its production capacity. To meet market demands, we are helping to achieve a new, more efficient future with our industry-leading power metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistors (MOSFETs)."

Cree is committed to leading the global transformation from silicon (Si) to silicon carbide (SiC) and recently announced the expansion of silicon carbide (SiC) capacity to achieve 30 times capacity increase. Cree offers a full range of silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) power and radio frequency (RF) solutions through its Wolfspeed business unit.

Delphi's new silicon carbide (SiC) inverters operate at 800V, giving automotive engineers more flexibility to optimize their powertrain systems. Options include more mileage or a smaller battery; ultra-fast charging or smaller, lighter, more affordable cables; more car energy recovery while braking, further increasing mileage.
