Solutions

Main traction inverters are the heart of electric vehicles and provide incredible amounts of torque and acceleration. The responsiveness of the inverter and the electric motor it controls correlate directly to the “feel” of the vehicle and consumer satisfaction. Power levels from 40 kW to 150+ kW are common, and these systems require extremely robust IGBT and silicon carbide (SiC) components. Scalability, enhanced thermal performance, and the industry’s lowest packaging inductance allow traction inverter designers to achieve peak efficiencies, state-of-art power density, and swift response times. 400-volt to 800-volt batteries supply power to traction inverters, requiring inverter components to be rated from 600 volts to 1200 volts while operating at current levels up to 1000 A per phase. SiC, IGBT, and VE-Trac module solutions from onsemi provide the foundation for traction inverter design, making your automotive products powerful and reliable.

VE-Trac Family

The VE−Trac™ (Vehicle Electrification for Traction) Family is an automotive qualified line of power modules specifically designed for EV traction inverters. The VE-Trac power modules, available with IGBT silicon and Silicon Carbide, are the components that convert direct current (DC) battery power in electric vehicles (EVs) or hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). EVs and HEVs have a lithium-ion battery which is now the leading e-battery technology that stores the energy in DC cells, our product then extracts that energy and converts it into alternating current to drive the electric motor. This power source is what creates propulsion for the car. The technology encompasses everything from range and performance, battery life and how the car feels when you are behind the wheel. It is an essential piece in all EVs.
