BorgWarner has secured a contract with a “major OEM” to source significant voltage inverters for battery electrical vehicle (BEV) platforms, which includes passenger vehicles and vans.
The contract is the supplier’s biggest for silicon carbide dependent (SiC) inverters and the initial for these parts in North The us.
“This is a important small business earn, furthering our lengthy-standing relationship with our customer,” claimed Stefan Demmerle, head of the supplier’s PowerDrive Programs.
The inverters use the Viper loved ones of scalable electrical power modules, manufactured with SiC elements for claimed superior performance. These make it possible for for a increased voltage procedure and increased current density in contrast with traditional inverter technology.
BorgWarner’s inverter efficiency and scalability, expense, sizing optimization and world-wide production footprint contributed to securing the small business earn. The start of the inverter is slated for 2024.
