Dana Secures Capacity for Silicon Carbide Semiconductors through Long-term Supply Agreement with Semikron Danfoss


MAUMEE, Ohio, Dec. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Dana Incorporated (NYSE: DAN) today announced that it has signed a long-term agreement with Semikron Danfoss, one of the world's leading manufacturers of power modules, to secure the supply of silicon-carbide semiconductors, which are designed to be scalable in multiple-chip formats.

"As we continue to grow our strong backlog of electrified programs, we will remain at the forefront of inverter technologies that are critical to managing the energy used in the vehicle," said Christophe Dominiak, Dana chief technology officer. "This multi-year supply agreement with Semikron Danfoss gives us a strategic advantage by ensuring we have access to silicon-carbide semiconductors, as we expand the use of this technology to deliver innovative, efficient, and powerful solutions for our customers."

Targeted for multiple customer programs across the light-vehicle, commercial-vehicle, and off-highway mobility markets, the semiconductors will be used in Dana's silicon-carbide inverter designs, which enable higher system efficiency and power density in a compact package for medium- and high-voltage inverter applications, resulting in the potential for increased range.

"We continue to focus on building a robust supply chain for our electrodynamic products, and we are pleased to be able to source semiconductors from a strong and experienced manufacturer like Semikron Danfoss," said Craig Price, Dana senior vice president of purchasing and supplier development. "The agreement secures Dana's ability to meet the growing demand from our customers across a broad range of vehicle applications."

The eMPack® platform from Semikron Danfoss is optimized for silicon-carbide technology and uses fully sintered direct pressed die technology, which allows for extremely compact, scalable, and reliable inverters.

"Semikron Danfoss is proud to be selected by Dana to deliver high-performance silicon-based eMPack® traction modules for their future inverter platforms. Our modular design, capable of utilizing silicon-carbide devices from multiple chip sources, is the ideal module platform for Dana's broad inverter portfolio," said Siegbert Haumann, senior vice president, Semikron Danfoss Automotive Division.
