Delphi Technologies awarded new power electronics business in China
Delphi Technologies secured new power electronics business wins in the second quarter of 2020 with three market-leading Chinese Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). The new business is scheduled to launch in the 2021-23 timeframe.
Two of the wins are for Delphi Technologies’ inverter and converter combination innovation, known as CIDD, for future hybrid vehicle applications. The third win is for a new battery electric vehicle (BEV), a fast-growing market segment in China. Delphi Technologies’ 800-volt silicon carbide inverter is developed in partnership with Cree.
“Our pioneering approach to the development of propulsion systems technology continues to be recognized and rewarded by our customers,” said Richard F. Dauch, CEO, Delphi Technologies. “Investments made in the past two years to expand our global footprint, product development capabilities and manufacturing capacity in electrification and electronic products and systems are paying off with a strong pipeline of new business wins with leading Chinese OEMs.”
Delphi Technologies built and launched a new manufacturing site in Suzhou, China, less than 18 months ago. Suzhou, combined with research and development centers in Shanghai, Seoul and Singapore, which also develops and manufactures the proprietary Viper inverter power switch, gives Delphi Technologies a competitive Asian footprint and leading electric propulsion systems product portfolio.
