European consortium unites innovative companies in the project Hiperform, where Elaphe joins efforts with 30 partners in 8 European countries with a goal to massively improve power electronics based on Wide Gap Band (WBG) semiconductors. Project aims for a resource-efficient and decarbonised transportation system, supported by the use of advanced and highly integrated wide-bandgap (WBG) technologies in electronic power circuits of EVs and charging infrastructures, to deliver the most advanced components to the automotive industry for affordable next generation green vehicles.
Elaphe studies and investigates the industrial applicability of high-performance Infineon semiconductors. High performance spectrum of wide-band gap semiconductors represents potential for improvement and savings within the concrete applications of the electrified power train and contribute to substantial saving of CO2 in transport and thus support the achievement of the set climate targets in Europe.
Among Elaphe partners in Hiperform are AVL, Infineon, Fraunhofer, Siemens, and others.
