Strategic Agreement Between onsemi & Kempower on EV Chargers

26 May 2023

onsemi has just entered into a strategic agreement where it will supply electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure equipment manufacturer Kempower with key power semiconductor technology.

Through the agreement, onsemi’s EliteSiC M3S MOSFETs and D3 diodes will be incorporated into the active AC/DC front-ends, as well as the primary and secondary DC/DC converters, of Kempower chargers. Consequently, much lower power losses at high operating frequencies will be witnessed - thereby translating into heightened levels of efficiency and reductions in overall system size. 

“onsemi EliteSiC power devices improve the efficiency and lower the size and weight of our EV charging solutions,” states Petri Korhonen, Chief Engineer at Kempower. “In addition, onsemi’s vertically integrated supply chain and broad portfolio of intelligent power solutions give us the stability needed to continue delivering world-class EV charging solutions to the market.”

“Our strength in manufacturing and resilient SiC supply chain assure Kempower that we will deliver high-quality products in the agreed-upon volumes today and in the future,” adds Asif Jakwani, SVP of the Advanced Power Division at onsemi.
