In 2020, Bosch in Germany, will produce a new generation of energy-efficient microchips that are specifically designed for use in electric cars.
As stressed by the authorities of the German company, the first instances of enterprise Reutlingen will deliver to potential buyers, and after 3 years they will be able to get to mass electric cars.
The chips will use a different semiconductor material, referred to as CARICOM silicon (SiC), which is designed to withstand higher temperatures and voltages present in the power electronics system, which is responsible for routing electricity between the battery and the transmission.
The Bosch Corporation was not informed about which manufacturers will receive the first microchips. It is worth noting that the German firm is a major supplier to such automotive brands as Volkswagen, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, extending the range of electric vehicles for competition with Tesla. Although the chips are harder to manufacture, they provide superior conductivity, at the same time, spending 50% less thermal energy.
