ZF and Danfoss seal partnership to improve the efficiency of electric drivelines
ZF Friedrichshafen and Danfoss Silicon Power have stepped up their existing cooperation with a new strategic partnership for silicon- and silicon-carbide power modules.
The partners plan to improve the efficiency of electric drivelines by leveraging engineering and cost benefits at the interface between power modules and inverters.
The partnership will see the two companies engage in joint research and development, with Danfoss also supplying power modules for silicon applications.
One of the first major milestones in this new initiative is a supply contract for Danfoss power modules destined for large-scale ZF volume production projects.
Beside 400 Volt standard applications the two companies have also begun co-developing an 800 Volt Silicon Carbide power module for a large volume production project.
