Wolfspeed trở thành Đối tác bán dẫn điện chính thức của đội Jaguar TCS Racing Formula E

23 December 2022

Jaguar TCS Racing has revealed the Jaguar I-TYPE 6, designed and engineered to compete for the 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, as the all-electric motorsport category moves into a new Gen3 era on 14 January in Mexico City for the first of Season 9’s 17 races in 12 cities.

It is the first FIA Formula E race car to feature both front and rear powertrains, as 250kW regen is added to the front and 350kW regen added at the rear, doubling the regenerative capability over the Gen2 model and removing the need for conventional rear brakes. The third generation of Jaguar’s Formula E race car is 74kg lighter and 100kW more powerful than the prior generations, and can now reach a maximum speed of 200mph.

The next generation of Formula E will continue to be a real-world test bed for Jaguar TCS Racing and car-maker Jaguar Land Rover (which aims to be an all-electric brand by 2025, and to achieve carbon net zero across its supply chain, products and operations by 2039). As the team develops new technology, it will power race-to-road learning for electric powertrain, sustainability and software technologies.

Ahead of the 2023 championship, Wolfspeed Inc of Durham, NC, USA – which makes silicon carbide materials as well as silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) power-switching & RF semiconductor devices – has been confirmed as Official Power Semiconductor Partner. The partnership builds on Wolfspeed’s existing relationship with the team since 2017, where its SiC technology has been used to accelerate on-track efficiency and performance.

“Their expertise in silicon carbide technology will play a pivotal role in our powertrain performance,” comments Jaguar TCS Racing’s team principal James Barclay.

Jaguar Land Rover also recently announced a strategic partnership with Wolfspeed, securing supply of SiC devices for the next generation of electric vehicle inverters. Both partnerships will support the technology and knowledge transfer from race-to-road, with a particular focus on efficiency.

“Our silicon carbide semiconductor technology in the Jaguar I-TYPE 6 creates an ‘Innovation Lab on Wheels’ to engineer improved powertrain efficiency in a high-performance electric vehicle,” says Jay Cameron, Wolfspeed senior VP & general manager, Power business. “Our collaboration with Jaguar TCS Racing in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship will support our shared goal of translating innovation from the race to the road.”
