“At ON Semiconductor, our core business is Power Management, and we support virtually every requirement with products that range from low drop-out regulators, to switched mode power supplies to sophisticated power management ICs (PMICs), positioning the company as an unrivaled supplier of power solutions for the rapidly emerging EV and hybrid electric vehicle market,” said Ali Husain, senior manager, power conversion and motor control solutions at ON Semiconductor. “We are seeing a ramp-up of our IGBT modules and FETs for electric vehicle charger designs. We expect next generation semiconductor materials such as silicon carbide and gallium nitride to drive improving power density and efficiency. We look forward to bringing this expertise to the CharIN ecosystem and collaborating with other industry leaders to create a Combined Charging System and supporting the continued evolution of EV charging infrastructure.”

As car makers turn to next generation semiconductor materials to improve power density and efficiency in hybrid and electric vehicles, 200V silicon carbide power devices and 650V gallium nitride power devices provide higher power efficiency and power density while keeping weight to a minimum.

“We are excited to have ON Semiconductor collaboration in our efforts,” said Claas Bracklo, chairman of CharIN e.V., based in Berlin, Germany  “Their broad portfolio of power, analog and communication silicon products, system design expertise, and relationships with leading companies in both the automotive and industrial markets complement and supplement the already-strong CharIN roster of members and partners.” CharIN developed the Combined Charging System (CCS).
