Shinry And Cree Raise The Bar For Electric Vehicle Power Converters

Cree SiC MOSFETs set to revolutionize hybrid electric and electric vehicle power converters
Cree, Inc has announced that Shenzhen based Shinry Technologies, a high-tech enterprise focused on energy efficient applications in transportation and lighting, employed Cree’s 1200V C2M family of SiC MOSFETs in its new, high-efficiency, hybrid electric and electric vehicle (HEV/EV) power converters to achieve industry-leading 96 percent efficiency.

According to Shinry Technologies, Cree’s C2M SiC MOSFETS enabled a 25 percent reduction in product size and reduced peak power losses by over 60 percent compared to the traditional silicon versions.

“Our customers care a great deal about efficiency, compact size and system weight and cost," said Dr. Wu Ren Hua, CEO of Shinry Technologies. “The new C2M family of SiC MOSFETs from Cree allows our new HEV/EV power converters for passenger cars and busses to deliver industry-leading efficiency of 96 percent in a compact size that is 25 percent smaller than current platforms not using Cree C2M SiC MOSFETs."

Based in Shenzhen, China, Shinry Technologies Co., Ltd. specializes in creating HEV/EV DC-DC converter, on-board charger and rapid charger solutions for a market that demands high reliability, efficiency and compact size.  By implementing Cree’s advanced second-generation SiC MOSFETs in its latest 3-10 kW DC-DC converters designed for use in electric busses, Shinry achieved considerable efficiency improvement and significant size and weight reduction.

“Cree is focused on delivering best-in-class energy efficiency through SiC innovation, so it’s very exciting to see our new C2M SiC MOSFET family being used to break barriers in HEV/EV power conversion," said Cengiz Balkas, vice president and general manager, Cree Power and RF. “Shinry’s rapid adoption of Cree’s C2M MOSFETs provides state-of-the-art efficiency, power density and cost to their customers.  We are very pleased to have Shinry using our products."

Cree MOSFETs have been actively employed in solar inverters, industrial power supplies, battery chargers, uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems and several other applications. These new 1200V and 1700V MOSFETs allow manufacturers to differentiate their products in the market through significant improvements in efficiency, reliability and/or power density, the latter of which can also lead to reductions in the size, weight, volume and, in some cases, even the total cost of power systems.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
