Battery management specialist AMP has integrated Wolfspeed’s E-Series silicon carbide MOSFETs into its Energy Management Unit.
AMP’s market-ready energy management solution integrates DC charging, DC-DC conversion and bidirectional onboard AC charging into a single platform.
Wolfspeed’s E-Series MOSFETs are optimized for use in automotive applications such as traction inverters, onboard chargers and high-voltage DC-DC converters. AMP says using Wolfspeed’s silicon carbide technology allows it to optimize battery performance, charging and costs.
“At AMP, we understand the power that silicon carbide brings to vehicle electrification,” said Jiaqi Liang, VP of Hardware Engineering at AMP. “The use of Wolfspeed’s silicon carbide in AMP’s Energy Management Unit (EMU) unlocks higher power density and efficiency, better platform scalability, and precise charging control. All are observed by consumers through improvements in cabin space [and] charging time, and lower cost.”
“AMP’s integration of our technology signals continued growth for silicon carbide in the automotive industry,” said Jay Cameron, SVP and General Manager, Power at Wolfspeed. “The expansion of our automotive-qualified 650 V and 1,200 V E-Series silicon carbide MOSFET portfolio allows AMP to easily deploy their products for either 400 V or 800 V systems.”
