800V Electric Vehicles Charge into Mainstream with SiC Power Electronics 

The demand for electric vehicle power electronics will increase dramatically in the next ten years, primarily driven by rapid growth in the battery EV car market, where market analyst IDTechEx of Cambridge, UK, predicts a 15% CAGR globally over the next decade. Currently, the weighted-average battery capacity of BEV cars is increasing in all regions, piling pressure on battery supply chains, and creating uncertainty. The result is that drive cycle efficiency must come to the forefront of powertrain design, meaning the time has come for high voltage wide bandgap power electronics. […]
