Electric Vehicles: Silicon Carbide (SiC) era has just begun

 

What will be the SiC device packaging solutions? Who are the first adopters?

Where in EV/HEV systems is the highest market potential for SiC?

According to Yole Développement (Yole) and System Plus Consulting‘s analysts, governmental targets for the reduction of CO2 emissions are the main drivers for the electrification of passenger vehicles. Currently, car makers focus on vehicle electrification as a very effective way to reduce their vehicle fleet CO2 emissions and in such a way to avoid heavy financial penalties. Vehicle models with different electrification levels have been introduced to the market, ranging from mild-hybrid electric vehicles (MHEVs), full hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) to zero-emission Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Fuel-Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEVs).

In the past, it was expected that the transition to full electric vehicles would remain rather slow and incremental. This was mainly due to the high battery cost and short driving range of electric vehicles. Due to the rapidly improving battery technologies, decreasing battery manufacturing cost, supply chain consolidation and many other factors, an accelerated deployment of electric vehicles is being observed.
