Vitesco Technologies To Use ROHM's SiC Power Electronics

Vitesco Technologies join forces with ROHM Semiconductor for silicon carbide (SiC) inverters.

Vitesco Technologies, the powertrain business area of Continental, selected the Japanese electronics company ROHM Semiconductor as the preferred supplier of silicon carbide (SiC) power devices.

Using ROHM’s SiC power modules, Vitesco intends to produce EV power electronics for both 400 V and 800 V battery systems. Series production of SiC inverters will start in 2025.

“Vitesco Technologies is already developing and testing SiC technology in an 800-volt inverter concept to confirm the efficiency potential of the technology. The approach of this program is to look at the complete system of inverter and motor to identify the best combination of device technology and switching strategy.”

The next step towards efficient electromobility: Vitesco Technologies cooperates with ROHM in the field of SiC technology.
