Wolfspeed SiC to power Mercedes Benz EVs

News

SiC power devices will be produced in North Carolina and the new 200mm Mohawk Valley Fab in Marcy, New York

Wolfspeed will be supplying SiC devices to power future Mercedes-Benz Electric Vehicle (EV) platforms, to enable greater efficiency in the powertrain.

“Coming from a long-term technical collaboration history between our companies, we have now chosen Wolfspeed as one of our key partners for future SiC devices, thus securing preferred long-term supply, technology and quality of this decisive semiconductor component for our electrification offensive,” said Gunnar Güthenke, head of procurement and supplier quality for Mercedes-Benz.

“We are pleased to be supporting Mercedes-Benz, an organisation with a long, successful history of providing world-class performance and luxury vehicles, as they introduce next-generation EVs to the market with highly efficient power systems,” said Gregg Lowe, CEO of Wolfspeed.

The SiC power devices for Mercedes-Benz will be produced at Wolfspeed’s facilities in Durham, North Carolina and its new 200mm Mohawk Valley Fab in Marcy, New York. This Mohawk Valley Fab is the world’s largest SiC fabrication facility.

Earlier this year Wolfspeed also announced it was beginning construction on a new SiC materials facility in North Carolina, which will expand its SiC capacity by more than ten times.
