Accelerating the expansion of the electric vehicle market
KEC, a company specializing in power semiconductors, announced that it has begun to supply a total of five types of products, including new IGBT and small signal discrete, to global electric vehicle manufacturers, and this supply will serve as an important stepping stone for the expansion of the electric vehicle market while the KEC products are consistently selected by it.
Power semiconductors are key components that are widely applied to a variety of uses ranging from home appliances, smartphones, industrial motors, and automobiles, and as the market for eco-friendly products such as electric vehicles and solar power generation has recently grown, the demand for power semiconductors is also increasing explosively. The IGBT, the core of the power semiconductor, is a semiconductor device for power supplies that control current by gate voltage, and plays a role in reducing power loss and improving performance. The IGBT combines the advantages of a MOSFET structure that embodies high switching speed at low power and a bipolar transistor capable of high voltage output, enabling relatively fast switching even in high voltage and high current environments of 600V or higher. Especially, in the case of electric vehicles where energy efficiency is the most important, IGBT plays a crucial role in increasing performance while reducing power loss.
