    Magnachip Launches 40V MOSFET for Automotive Applications

    Magnachip Semiconductor has released a new 40V Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor (MOSFET) to control Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) motors for automotive applications.

    The new 40V MOSFET is fully AEC-Q101 (Automotive Electronics Council-Q101) certified and is critical to vehicle safety, the company said in a release.

    The first application of this new product is for the Electric Water Pump of a new EV model from a global auto manufacturer, Magnachip added. This MOSFET is also suitable for a variety of BLDC applications, such as electric oil pumps, engine cooling fans, electric power steering, and battery cooling fans.

    Given concerns about global climate change and corresponding efforts to reduce carbon emissions, the Electric Vehicle (EV) market is projected to grow significantly. Omdia, a global market research firm, estimates that the global EV market is expected to grow 27% annually between 2022 and 2025. As such, demand for high-efficiency and durable BLDC motors for EVs will increase and Medium Voltage (MV) MOSFETs are essential for BLDC motors to operate efficiently. Magnachip has developed a new 40V MOSFET featuring low RDS(on) to reduce the conduction loss of automotive BLDC motors and the company began mass production of this new MOSFET in April 2022.

    Magnachip continues to expand its market share in the automotive semiconductor sector with new products and advanced technology. It is becoming a stable supplier of power semiconductor products as an integrated device manufacturer amid global supply chain disruptions affecting the automotive semiconductor industry, which is forecast to last through 2023.

    “The market for both electric and internal combustion engines in the automotive sector is more competitive than ever and the demand for high-performance MV MOSFETs is increasing rapidly,” YJ Kim, CEO of Magnachip, said. “Accordingly, we are strengthening our presence in global markets and believe the release of this new 40V MOSFET will help us to secure greater market share,” he addedMagnachip is a designer and manufacturer of analogue and mixed-signal semiconductor platform solutions for communications, IoT, consumer, computing, industrial and automotive applications. The Company provides a broad range of standard products to customers worldwide. Magnachip, with more than 40 years of operating history, owns a portfolio of approximately 1,150 registered patents and pending applications, and has extensive engineering, design, and manufacturing process expertise, the release said.
