AUBURN HILLS, Michigan , February 16, 2022 (press release) –

•    Latest business award from a global OEM, marks second silicon carbide-based inverter module win for North America
•    Technology will provide high levels of continuous current and advanced cooling strategies to meet thermal demands 

BorgWarner has secured a contract with a major global OEM to supply high voltage generator inverters to be used in an innovative electrified architecture to charge the main batteries. The silicon carbide (SiC) based inverter is designed to provide high levels of continuous current and advanced cooling strategies to manage the application’s challenging thermal demands.

“BorgWarner is extremely proud to secure this contract and continue building upon our collaborative and long-standing relationship with this customer,” said Dr. Stefan Demmerle, President and General Manager, BorgWarner PowerDrive Systems. “We are eager to continue providing scalable, energy efficient and sustainable mobility solutions to support our customers as they shift toward fully electrified vehicle technology.”

The power-dense inverters use BorgWarner’s Viper family of scalable power modules coupled with enhanced thermal designs to allow continuous operation at 70% of peak current, whereas typical applications provide only 40-50% of peak current continuously. Additionally, the use of SiC power switches helps make these inverters more efficient than traditional silicon-based inverters.
BorgWarner’s inverter performance, robustness, scalable design, overall value, customer relationship and global manufacturing footprint are all factors that led to the business win. The inverter’s production is slated for 2024.
