SEMIKRON, Danfoss tie up to develop power electronics


Danfoss Silicon Power announced a merger to create a joint business specialised
in power electronics focusing on power semiconductor modules.

With an existing
workforce of more than 3,500 dedicated power electronic specialists, the new
SEMIKRON-Danfoss will provide world-class technology expertise as the leading
partner in Power Electronics. The merger comes with a firm commitment to future
investments, paving the way for green growth and a more sustainable, energy
efficient and decarbonized future.

will be a central enabler of this transition. The electrical power will be in
the future the most important energy source. The power semiconductor module is
at the heart of all power electronic solutions. The module is built of power
semiconductors that makes it possible to convert and control the electrical
power. With the rise of e-mobility, the demand for electric vehicles is
expected to increase by 30% each year over the next years.

will leverage its strong core business in industrial- and renewable power
module applications and will utilize the partnership to target a leading
position in Automotive power modules.

Karl-Heinz Gaubatz added that it is an exciting moment for them. By combining
SEMIKRON’s expertise as a pioneer for semiconductor technology with more than
70 years of experience in the development of top-class power modules and
systems and the strength, innovativeness, and fast-paced operations of Danfoss
Silicon Power and the Danfoss Group we are positioned ideally to become one of
the strongest players in power electronics.

is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of power modules and systems
primarily in the medium output range (approx. 2 kW up to 10 MW). Our products
are at the heart of modern energy-efficient motor drives and industrial
automation systems.
