Wolfspeed is a leading innovator and manufacturer of wide bandgap semiconductors that is helping to make electric vehicles a reality with our SiC bare die, discretes and power modules. Our SiC devices increase system efficiency, provide higher switching frequencies, and contribute to reduced system size in automotive systems, making it possible for electric vehicles to charge faster and go farther.

Wolfspeed manufactures SiC devices that are automotive AEC-Q101 certified

Wolfspeed has more than 50 SiC bare die, MOSFETs and Schottky diodes that are AEC-Q101 qualified. According to the Automotive Electronics Council, the purpose of the AEC-Q101 certification is “to determine that a device is capable of passing the specified stress tests and thus can be expected to give a certain level of quality and reliability in the application.” Wolfspeed’s SiC discretes deliver the highest-available power density and excellent durability for on-board automotive power conversion systems, off-board charging and solar inverters.

Wolfspeed manufactures PPAP capable SiC devices

The launch of Wolfspeed’s E-Series devices introduces SiC MOSFETs and diodes that are also PAPP capable in addition to AEC-Q101 certified. The Production Part Approval Process (PAPP) is a streamlined method used in the automotive supply chain to ensure that a developer has refined the design and production processes to meet the client’s expectations. This advancement leads to some of the most reliable automotive power devices available on the market.

Wolfspeed manufactures SiC devices that support high-performing EVs

Wolfspeed’s SiC technology and E-Series devices create high-performing products and automotive systems that can withstand severe environments and extremely harsh conditions. For instance, Wolfspeed’s new third-generation 1200V SiC MOSFET family has lead to significant breakthroughs within the drivetrain technology of EVs that increase efficiency with lower-system costs while providing better overall EV performance.

Wolfspeed is the only manufacturer who offers a family of SiC MOSFETS and diodes to meet meet both high-humidity and automotive qualifications

Wolfspeed’s E-Series SiC devices are the first family of MOSFETs and diodes that are automotive qualified and PPAP capable, delivering high-performance results and system-level value even in the most extreme conditions. These advancements establish Wolfspeed as the first manufacturer in the industry to release a full-suite of commercially available SiC automotive-qualified devices.

Wolfspeed, A Cree Company, manufactures high quality and reliable wide bandgap semiconductor devices. With more than 25 years of experience with SiC devices, Wolfspeed’s EV power converter technology is now more advanced than ever. Wolfspeed is committed to delivering some of the most reliable, low-cost, and efficient system of components commercially available in the power market today.
