Growth in silicon carbide power sales is good news for EVs
Manufacturer of silicon carbide (SiC) power semiconductors, UnitedSiC has opened an office in Shenzhen, China, and appointed Henry Jiang as Senior Sales Manager for the South China region. Jiang joins the company from STMicroelectronics, where he was the team leader of the power division.
UnitedSiC has seen sales growth for its high efficiency Silicon Carbide (SiC) power semiconductors in China, particularly in Electric Vehicle (EV) charging systems.
The CEO of UnitedSiC, Chris Dries, commented on the appointment as one that will support UnitedSiC’s rapid growth in the Chinese market, thanks primarily to the strong development of electric vehicle manufacturing sector in the region.
“Today, UnitedSiC’s products are designed into the majority of electric vehicles being manufactured in China,” said Dries.
“In both efficiency and reliability, our SiC transistors outperform both silicon and GaN devices. As a result, they enable smaller, faster EV charging systems to be developed, giving our customers competitive advantage. We are committed to supporting Chinese customers and will continue to grow our business in this region with more experienced and talented people like Henry Jiang.”
UnitedSiC’s devices are also widely used in power supplies, variable speed motor drives and solar photovoltaic inverters.
