VisIC And ZF To Work On 400V Electric Drivelines

News

Extended partnership deepens existing joint efforts in the application of GaN semiconductors for electric vehicles

ZF Friedrichshafen AG, an automotive supplier, and VisIC Technologies, a maker of GaN devices for automotive high-voltage applications, has announced they will work together to create the next generation of high-performance and high-efficiency electric drivelines for vehicles.

The partnership will see the two companies deepen their development efforts, based on VisIC D3GaN semiconductors technology. The focus of the joint efforts will be on 400-Volt driveline applications, covering the largest segment of the electric vehicle market.

"Our partnership with ZF for the development of GaN-based power inverters in electric vehicles illustrates the break-through of GaN technology in the automotive industry," said Tamara Baksht, CEO of VisIC.

"VisIC's D3GaN technology was developed for the high reliability standards of the automotive industry and offers the lowest losses per Rdson. It also simplifies the system solution and enables high-efficiency and affordable power train solutions. It is definitely the next step for the automotive electrical driveline."

ZF's fast adoption of wide band gap semiconductor technology, such as SiC and GaN, makes it a leader in the development of the most cost-effective and highly efficient electric drivelines. Through their extended R&D partnership, ZF and VisIC deepens their existing joint efforts in the application of GaN semiconductors for inverters.
