White Paper Overview

While consumers are keen to reduce their carbon footprint, the move to E-Mobility, especially private electric vehicles (EV), is hindered by the limited charging infrastructure, most notably in fast charging. This white paper reviews the charging landscape and examines implementation approaches for fast DC chargers. Specific focus is placed on chargers delivering 350 kW and more for fast electrical “refueling”. It also examines the role SiC power semiconductor devices and other supporting technologies in the Infineon portfolio offer in such applications.
