This white paper focuses on the three EV charging levels and the Microchip solutions that can support several aspects of residential, commercial and fast charging systems. This includes a highlight of Microchip's low inductance SiC modules and digital programmable gate drivers enabling more efficient, compact and reliable DC fast chargers.

Delivering on the EV Range Extension Promise of SiC in Traction Inverters

2022-04-12T10:38:56-05:00

SiC MOSFETs are widely expected to add between 5% and 10% more range for a standard EV driving cycle as compared to existing silicon based technologies. Because of this, they are an important part of the next generation of traction inverters in the EV drive train. If properly exploited with supporting components, their power efficiency gain could represent a huge step forward in building consumer confidence in EV range and help to accelerate EV adoption…
