The Rise in Integration of Power Electronics Components in Electric Vehicles

The efficiency of conventional power electronics, based on silicon semiconductor technologies, generally varies between 85% and 95%. This results in the loss of approximately 10% of the electrical energy in the form of heat. The electrical field strength of SiC devices is nearly ten times higher (2.8MV/cm vs. 0.3MV/cm) compared to silicon semiconductors. This higher electric field strength makes it possible to apply a thinner layer structure to the SiC substrate. In addition, thermal design plays a crucial role in the power electronics system to design high-power density and consequently compact systems.

Moreover, high-frequency switching of SiC leads to lesser power dissipation in electric vehicles. SiC offers three times higher thermal conductivity than pure Si-based semiconductor devices, enabling the operation of devices at higher temperatures. Several market vendors have been investing significantly in designing SiC-based solutions, owing to the demand for electric and hybrid vehicles. Therefore, the surge in demand for electric vehicles is anticipated to offer lucrative opportunities for market growth during the forecast period.
