Denso Introduces REVOSIC Concept
Using SiC technologies in electric vehicles can help to realise a decarbonised society
Denso has detailed its contribution to spreading the use of electric vehicles, extending their mileage, and reducing CO2 emissions from vehicles by developing SiC power semiconductors, which incorporate Denso's proprietary structures and processing technologies, and using them in its in-vehicle products.
For example, the company says that a booster power module, which incorporates Denso's SiC power semiconductor, is about 30 percent smaller in volume with 70 percent less power loss than a conventional product with a Si power semiconductor. As a result, products have been made smaller and vehicle fuel efficiency improved.
Denso is calling these SiC technologies REVOSIC conveying the idea of making 'changes' in society through innovative technologies. The company says it has been developing a comprehensive range of technologies from wafers to power modules, and will continue R&D on REVOSIC SiC technologies and spreading their use in electric vehicles to help realise a decarbonised society.
