WeEn Semiconductors CEO Markus Mosen Attends ISES CHINA 2023,
Silicon Carbide Drives New Energy Vehicles into the “Acceleration Era”
[Shanghai October 18, 2023]
Recently, Mr. Markus Mosen, CEO of WeEn Semiconductors, was invited to attend the 2023 International Semiconductor Executive Summit (ISES, formerly CISES) in Shanghai.
As a platform where semiconductor original manufacturers and equipment manufacturers gather, ISES focuses on senior management. Executives and leaders from the semiconductor industry around the world were invited to gather here, aiming to explore the future industry trends and challenges, and share how they drive technological advancement in a rapidly innovating and changing industry. ISES empowers the semiconductor manufacturing industry by promoting innovation, business and investment opportunities across the entire microelectronics supply chain, and facilitating the development of China's semiconductor industry.
At the summit, in the session with the theme of "Opportunities for Wide Band Gap Power Semiconductors in Automotive Applications", Mr. Markus Mosen gave a speech titled "How Does Silicon Carbide Accelerates New Energy Vehicles", sharing with industry audiences the development prospects of power semiconductor technology represented by silicon carbide, as well as how to use WBG devices to improve energy efficiency, and leverage energy and power systems to empower new energy vehicles.
An undeniable fact is that in recent years, the global market for new energy vehicles has been heating up. Considerations based on environmental protection and reducing carbon emissions have stimulated consumer demand for new energy vehicles. China has also been continuously making efforts in the field of new energy vehicles.
In his speech, Mr. Markus Mosen primarily shared the current status and development trends of the new energy vehicle market. He also explained the development history of WeEn Semiconductors and updates for product technology. Mr. Markus Mosen, leveraging the industry-leading silicon carbide technology of WeEn Semiconductors, highlighted its robust capabilities in meeting the high-temperature and high-voltage requirements of new energy vehicles, particularly in inverters and on-board chargers.
Silicon carbide's band gap width, breakdown field strength, electron mobility, and thermal conductivity all surpass traditional silicon materials, leading to higher system energy efficiency, faster switching speeds, lower power loss, and stronger thermal management efficiency. Silicon carbide power devices can be used in the power systems of electric vehicles, covering electric drive inverters, on-board chargers, and DC-DC conversion systems. Mr. Markus Mosen emphasized that compared to traditional technologies, silicon carbide performs better in power handling. It can be used to design power supplies that are lighter and smaller in size, with higher power density, making it a perfect fit for the automotive and industrial sectors. Especially in the next few years, as market demands become more diverse and differentiated, the acceleration of new technologies and products will better support market needs.
