Dana Incorporated today announced that it has signed a long-term agreement with Semikron Danfoss, a manufacturer of power modules, to secure the supply of silicon-carbide semiconductors, which are designed to be scalable in multiple-chip formats.

"As we continue to grow our strong backlog of electrified programs, we will remain at the forefront of inverter technologies that are critical to managing the energy used in the vehicle," said Christophe Dominiak, Dana chief technology officer. "This multi-year supply agreement with Semikron Danfoss gives us a strategic advantage by ensuring we have access to silicon-carbide semiconductors, as we expand the use of this technology to deliver innovative, efficient, and powerful solutions for our customers."

Targeted for multiple customer programs across the light-vehicle, commercial-vehicle and off-highway mobility markets, the semiconductors will be used in Dana's silicon-carbide inverter designs, which enable higher system efficiency and power density in a compact package for medium- and high-voltage inverter applications, resulting in the potential for increased range.
