Driven by environmental and fuel economy concerns, the transition to electric vehicle power goes beyond passenger cars to utility vehicles, trucks, buses and industrial/material handling vehicles like forklifts. The growth in these heavy-duty electric vehicles brings challenges for many areas, including motor controllers, converters, battery management systems and new power electronics systems. Heavy equipment requires more battery packs, more powerful motors and an array of sophisticated power conversion systems. Whether it be an electric bus, e-truck or semi-truck, or other utility vehicles, all require highly durable power electronics and reliable power semiconductor technology.
Rogers offers power electronics solutions to address the design challenges of heavy-duty electric vehicles. Our curamik® ceramic substrates enable reliable power semiconductor technology. Additionally, our ROLINX® busbars distribute power in tight spaces, aiding in space management for heavy-duty hybrid/EV powertrains.
