The portfolio covers a power range of 600V IGBTs for applications up to 150kVA and 1,200V IGBTs for up to 230kVA.

The custom-specific SKAI systems are said to fulfil current requirements and qualification standards as regards EMC, vibration, IP protection class, safety functions and lifetime in the automotive industry.

The verified safety functions enable the use of both asynchronous and synchronous motors and are said to guarantee reliable operation.

SKAI modules are also suitable for multi-electrical drive systems.

The platform solution is described as the most suitable way for test vehicles and a low-volume production.

Hofer also develops and supplies entire electric powertrain systems, including motor, transmission and full electric axle modules for hybrid and electric vehicles.

Semikron's SKAI 2 product platform is bound for use in automotive applications owing to the use of pressure contact technology.

The company's experience in the area of battery-powered vehicles has been integrated in the SKAI product family.
