The powertrain systems within the Formula E Silver Arrow 02 possess an increased number of power semiconductors, these semiconductors must meet extremely demanding performance and efficiency requirements, while withstanding the harshest of automotive environments. As a market leader in innovative power management solutions, ON Semiconductor expertise is helping accelerate the development of innovative and energy efficient powertrains for the highly competitive ABB FIA Formula E Championship.
ON Semiconductor technical teams have been collaborating with the Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E Team in developing next-generation electric powertrain innovations for cutting-edge performance and efficiency.
Technologies that will be developed through the sponsorship are all highly relevant and transferable to applications in next generation electric vehicles. And if these solutions can support the massive power transfers that occur around the track, they certainly can drive innovation in the electric vehicle (EV) industry, providing the longer driving range between charges, faster battery charging times and better thermal management needed for everyday use.
