Engineers continually look for feasible ways to improve electric vehicles (EVs) as they become more in-demand. One increasingly frequent approach is to use wide-bandgap semiconductors in their design. Here are some compelling examples of how these components improve EV performance. 1. Enabling Faster Charging Capabilities It takes only a couple of minutes to fill a car’s fuel tank at the gas pump, but recharging EV batteries can take hours. However, ON Semiconductor is banking on semiconductor choices having drastic impacts on charging speed. The company introduced a silicon carbide (SiC) charging module that reportedly brings a 100x reduction in conduction losses compared to silicon counterparts. That advantage, combined with faster switching speeds, could make significantly more efficient charging a reality.
