Yole Développement invites you to join us at the Infusing Cars with Sparks and Senses.
The Roadmap to Next-Gen EV & AV virtual conference and exhibition will offer vehicle designers building blocks to help successfully develop power efficient, advanced EVs with automated features. Keynotes, panels and technical presentations will shed light on the pitfalls and challenges facing new vehicle designs
and suggest strategies and solutions for car designers.
This virtual event works the same way as a live exhibition and conference: it has a fairground, exhibition hall and conference area. During the technical conference, we will have several topic-specific sessions consisting of Keynotes about major technical trends, market requirements, new applications areas, etc., Panel Discussions with industry experts and Technical Presentations about products and solutions. Parallel to the Conference there will be an Exhibition, featuring virtual booths from leading automotive companies. A Live Chat tool enables visitors to directly contact the booth personnel.
Yole Développement will participate to the following:
Wide Bandgap Semiconductors Race in Electric Vehicle Systems

Abstract: Electric and hybrid electric vehicles (xEVs) represent a healthy and growing market, driven by sustainable trends. We estimate that the demand for electrified vehicles will surpass 40 million units per year by 2026, boosted by many regulations and subventions from different countries. Major OEMs are, therefore, actively working on many PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) and BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle) models to be launched in the coming 5 years. BEV is an ideal segment for SiC adoption as the power levels for the main inverter are relatively high, meaning more power device content is required in the system. Therefore, the gain in efficiency from SiC in these systems can be relevant to increase driving ranges. As will be shown during the presentation, the adoption of 800V batteries for fast charging is another entry point for SiC in the xEV main inverter, and its adoption will rapidly increase in the next few years. In this presentation, we will give an overview of the xEV market and illustrate the potential for increasing use of WBG in different xEV systems, showing how these new semiconductors are expected to penetrate very rapidly creating a huge business in only a few years.
