Infineon’s CoolSiC-based power modules are said to allow higher operating temperatures, resulting in what are claimed to be best-in-class performance, driving dynamics and lifetime. Traction inverters based on the technology can, for example, further increase EV range. The HybridPACK Drive is Infineon’s market-leading power module family for electric vehicles, with almost 8.5 million units sold since 2017.

Infineon provides two HybridPACK Drive G2 CoolSiC 1200V modules for the Xiaomi SU7 Max. In addition, it supplies Xiaomi EV with a broad range of products per car including, for example, EiceDRIVER gate drivers and more than ten microcontrollers in various applications. The two companies also agreed to further cooperate on SiC automotive applications to fully utilize the benefits of Infineon’s SiC portfolio.

“Infineon is an important partner with leading technologies and resilient manufacturing capabilities in power semiconductors as well as a highly scalable microcontroller product portfolio,” comments Zhenyu Huang, VP of Xiaomi EV & general manager of the Supply Chain Department. “The cooperation between the two companies will not only help stabilize the supply of silicon carbide for Xiaomi EV but also help us build a high-performance, safe and reliable luxury car with leading-edge features for our customers,” he adds.

“We are very pleased to work with dynamic players such as Xiaomi EV and provide them with silicon carbide products designed to enhance the performance of electric cars even further,” says Peter Schiefer, president of Infineon’s Automotive division. “As the leading partner to the automotive industry, we are well positioned with our broad product portfolio, system understanding and multi-site manufacturing base to shape the mobility of the future,” he reckons.
