Semikron, a manufacturer of power modules and systems has secured a billion Euro contract with a major German car manufacturer for their new power module platform eMPack.
This new platform, which is optimized for silicon carbide technology, will be used in the car manufacturer’s next generation EV inverters. It uses Semikron’s fully sintered “Direct Pressed Die” (DPD) technology, which allows for extremely compact, scalable and reliable inverters. Series production is scheduled to begin in 2025.
Semikron has pursued its plan to become an automotive supplier, building upon decades of experience in the development and production of power modules.
According to business intelligence and strategy research company BIS Research, the number of hybrid and electric vehicles will continue to grow by 23% a year until 2029. Semikron is helping in the market development with its eMPack power module platform for electric drive systems and full inverter solutions for utility vehicles.
