onsemi Strengthens Strategic Partnership with BorgWarner via Billion Dollar Wide Bandgap Deal

31 July 2023

onsemi has expanded on its collaborative relationship with automotive hardware supplier BorgWarner through a silicon carbide (SiC) agreement that is set to have a total lifetime worth of least $1 billion.

Through this agreement, BorgWarner will fit onsemi’s 1200V and 750V rated EliteSiC high-performance power devices into its VIPER power modules. This will mean that major boosts in operational efficiency and power density will be derived within the traction inverters used by electric vehicle (EV) models. 
“First and foremost, onsemi’s continuous and strategic investment in ramping SiC manufacturing capacity across its end-to-end supply chain gives us confidence in our ability to support the increasing demand for our solutions, now and in the future,” states Stefan Demmerle, who heads up BorgWarner’s PowerDrive Systems division. 
“The integration of EliteSiC technology in the traction inverter enables increased gas-equivalent miles per gallon, which helps alleviate range anxiety - one of the key barriers to EV adoption,” adds Simon Keeton, EVP pf the Power Solutions Group at onsemi. “With onsemi’s chip-to-system level support and a track record of execution, we are able to provide industry-leading SiC-based solutions to BorgWarner at an accelerated pace to support its go-to-market requirements.”
