Navitas and Shinry to work together on NEVs
New joint lab to deliver advanced battery-electric and fuel-cell vehicle power platforms
Navitas Semiconductor and Shinry, maker of on-board power supply and strategic supplier to Honda, Hyundai, BYD, Geely, XPENG, BAIC and other vehicle makers, have opened a joint R&D lab to accelerate the development of New-Energy Vehicle (NEV) power systems enabled by Navitas’ GaNFast technology.
The joint lab brings together engineers from Navitas and Shinry to build R&D platforms. Navitas’ own EV system Design Centrr, located in Shanghai will provide technical support for the joint lab. Navitas will not only supply Shinry with power devices, but will also engage in system-level R&D from the initial stages of product specification and design, through to test platforms and customised packaging solutions.
“As early as 2012, Shinry began applying SiC MOS, and in 2019, Shinry initiated research on the application of GaN and has been actively seeking strategic partners.” said Peter Chen, COO of Shinry.
Gene Sheridan, Navitas’ co-founder & CEO said: “Shinry’s mission to change the way of travel aligns closely with Navitas’ Electrify Our World mission. We believe that through our joint efforts, leading GaN technologies will enter the power systems of NEVs for more end-users, contributing to the vigorous growth of the new energy industry."
