On-Demand Webinar Series: Avnet-Silica /POWER UP

Join Dr. Zhongda Li in this Avnet-Silica on-demand webinar session “Achieving New Levels of Efficiency in EV Applications with SiC FETs”. You’ll learn the advantages and challenges of using SiC FETs in EV applications, how UnitedSiC (now Qorvo) Gen 4 SiC FETs tackle these challenges and how they compare to Si superjunction or SiC MOSFET counterparts.

Driven by the need for improved vehicle range, charging time, safety, lifetime and sustainable transportation, innovation in electric powertrains is focused around On-Board Chargers (OBC), DC/DC Converters, traction inverters as well as the battery management system (BMS).

400V power supplies will soon to be the new standard, and 800V power supplies are already being offered in series-produced vehicles. The doubled voltage means that considerably more power can be transmitted in the same amount of time at the same current, resulting in significantly shorter charging times. However, traditional semiconductor components are now reaching their physical limits.

Join the experts from Avnet Silica and our leading supplier partners, Microchip, Navitas, onsemi, Qorvo (United SiC) Renesas, and STMicroelectronics to learn about the most appropriate, innovative, and cost-effective technologies that will be driving the design of tomorrow’s electric powertrain.


Title: Achieving new levels of efficiency in EV applications with SiC FETs

Duration: 1 hour


In this webinar, we will review the advantages and challenges of using SiC devices in EV applications, followed by how Qorvo’s SiC FETs tackle these challenges and offer breakthrough performance compared to its Si superjunction or SiC MOS counterparts. We will give a few examples where SiC FETs bring excellent efficiency in EV applications and introduce Qorvo’s FET-Jet Calculator tool for near-instant performance evaluation of many topologies and SiC FET options.
