Delphi to Partner with Cree

The adoption of SiC-based power solutions is rapidly growing across the automotive market as the industry seeks to accelerate its move from internal combustion engines to EVs. IHS estimates that, by 2030, 30 million high voltage electrified light vehicles will be sold representing 27 % of all vehicles sold annually. Inverters are one of the highest-value electrification components and their efficiency has an industry-changing impact on many aspects of vehicle performance. Cree’s SiC MOSFET technology coupled with Delphi Technologies’ traction drive inverters, DC/DC converters and chargers will extend driving range and deliver faster charging times of EVs, while also lowering weight, conserving space and reducing cost. The Cree SiC MOSFETs will initially be used in Delphi’s 800 V inverters for a premium global automaker. Production will ramp in 2022.

“Our collaboration with Cree will create a significant benefit to automakers as they work to balance meeting stricter global emissions regulations with consumer appetite for electric vehicles. Overcoming driver anxiety related to electric vehicle range, charging times and cost will be a boon for the industry”, commented Richard F. Dauch, CEO of Delphi Technologies. “Cree’s technology is at the heart of the change underway in EVs, and we are committed to supporting the automotive industry as it transitions from Silicon-based designs to more efficient, higher performing Silicon Carbide solutions,” said Gregg Lowe, CEO of Cree. “This partnership with Delphi Technologies will help drive the adoption of Silicon Carbide in the automotive sector. As the leader in Silicon Carbide, we will continue to expand capacity to meet market demands to help achieve a new, more efficient future.”
