ON Semiconductor to Provide Danfoss with High Power Devices for Inverter Traction Modules

12” Fab enables scale and a secure supply for automotive applications

FRANKFURT, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#CES_2018--PCIM Digital Days - ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ON), driving energy efficient innovations, and Danfoss A/S today announced that ON Semiconductor will supply Danfoss Silicon Power with high power IGBTs and diodes for inverter traction modules in the fast growing electric vehicle market.


As a leading supplier of power semiconductors for more than 50 years, ON Semiconductor has developed a wide range of automotive components, by applying advanced technology and extensive R&D expertise, in the fields of high-voltage interfacing, smart power management, in-vehicle networking, system level integration, and sensor interfaces. The company also provides a robust set of modeling tools that enable the designer to realize application performance in simulation rather than costly measurement cycles. In addition, utilizing the 12 inch Fab in East Fishkill, ON Semiconductor is perfectly positioned to supply competitive devices at a scale necessary to serve the vehicle electrification market for years to come.

Danfoss Silicon Power is a subsidiary of the Danfoss Group, the largest industrial company in Denmark. For decades, Danfoss Silicon Power has been helping top tier manufacturers and system suppliers meet stringent reliability, design and cost targets by designing, developing and manufacturing customized power modules for automotive, industrial and renewable applications.

“Chip independency is an important and fundamental element of the Danfoss go-to market strategy. By selecting IGBT chips from ON Semiconductor we are accommodating the high growth expectations from our automotive customers,” said Claus A. Petersen, senior vice president and general manager, Danfoss Silicon Power. “Our main objective is to develop world-class power modules, fitted exactly for the application in question. We are happy to have a long-term and robust relationship with ON Semiconductor.”

“With investment in power technologies and manufacturing capacity globally, ON Semiconductor reiterates our firm commitment to be the top supplier of automotive high power devices,” said Asif Jakwani, senior vice president of the Advance Power Division at ON Semiconductor. “Utilizing our semiconductor portfolio with Danfoss’ extensive experience in power module design and manufacturing, we expect our penetration in the vehicle electrification market to accelerate, benefitting both companies.”

ON Semiconductor will fabricate the high power components in manufacturing locations in East Fishkill, New York, and Bucheon, South Korea. Danfoss will fabricate their power modules in Flensburg, Germany, and Utica, New York.
