onsemi and Magna sign strategic agreements

2 August 2023, 06:56:21

onsemi and Magna sign strategic agreementsonsemi announced a long-term supply agreement (LTSA) for Magna to integrate onsemi's EliteSiC intelligent power solutions into its eDrive systems.

By integrating onsemi's industry-leading EliteSiC MOSFET technology, Magna eDrive systems can offer better cooling performance and faster acceleration and charging rates, improving efficiency and increasing the range of electric vehicles (EVs). Additionally, onsemi's end-to-end silicon carbide (SiC) manufacturing capability, combined with its ability to ramp production quickly, improves Magna’s vertical integration and simplifies its supply chain to meet the growing demand for its SiC-based products for EVs.

Simultaneous with the signing of the LTSA, the companies entered a separate agreement through which Magna will also invest approximately $40 million for the procurement of new SiC equipment at onsemi's New Hampshire and Czech Republic facilities to ensure access to future supply.

Silicon carbide is a wide bandgap semiconductor substrate that is ideal for high-temperature, high-power applications such as electric vehicles, but it is incredibly difficult to produce. With a limited number of manufacturers and significant demand for SiC-based designs, OEMs and automotive suppliers are increasingly looking to secure long-term, reliable supply.
