SEMIKRON and Danfoss Silicon Power have announced a merger to create a joint business specialized 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. SEMIKRON-Danfoss 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 make 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. This speaks to the enormous growth potential of power modules as they are a key component for powering the electric motor and in vehicle chargers.
