EV Powertrain

Wolfspeed’s Silicon Carbide power components offer the industry’s lowest drain-source on resistance, which increases the distance consumers can drive on a single charge.

Overview

Wolfspeed: Designed to Support High-Voltage EV Powertrain Systems

Electric vehicles (EVs) are full of advanced electrical designs — from the on-board charging system to infotainment and navigation platforms — so providing clean, efficient power is essential. But the biggest and most mission-critical system, responsible for getting the vehicle from Point A to Point B, is the EV powertrain.

Powertrains: The Heart of the Electric Vehicle

An EV’s powertrain is responsible for taking energy stored in the vehicle’s battery system and supplying it to the motors. The amount of power that it takes to move a fully loaded vehicle is enormous, and delivery needs to be instantaneous and predictable. Furthermore, the vehicle's range is most dictated by the ability to provide power with maximum efficiency and minimum resistance. The efficiency of this technology can be the difference between safely making it to your destination and getting stranded roadside.

Wolfspeed Silicon Carbide: Ready for the Future of EV Powertrains

Wolfspeed believes that Silicon Carbide (SiC) is the material best suited for the challenges of EV systems and powertrains, which is why we are committed to increasing our Silicon carbide capacity by thirtyfold by the year 2024. Wolfspeed has more than 30 years in Silicon Carbide design and manufacturing experience and stands alone as the global leader in Silicon Carbide technology.
