2020 ON Semiconductor



Silicon Carbide (SiC) Solutions for Electrical Vehicles

The widespread popularity of electric (BEV) and plug-in electric (PHEV) vehicles continues to grow at a rapid pace – an estimated 300k BEV sold in the U.S. in 2019, capturing roughly 2% of the total new car sales. On each one of these vehicles is an On-Board Charging (OBC) system that converts AC voltage from the grid to DC voltage to charge your battery. Additionally you need a traction inverter to drive the electric vehicles.
