Giving Formula E racing cars an edge with SiC
In automotive applications, requirements like space, weight and high efficiency play an increasing role. This leads to more demanding design requirements on the system and component level and ultimately affects the overall consistence of power devices, passive components, cooling technologies and PCBs. In consequence, Silicon Carbide (SiC) has become of higher interest in recent years. This presentation will focus on: SiC Technology and trends; the Benefit of SiC for the power train inverter, with a case study from Formula e racing car; and the benefit of utilizing SiC in personal vehicles (serial cars).
