There has been a lot of talk in recent months about the problem of the chip crisis. Now, on the semiconductor manufacturing front comes some interesting news. Indeed, Bosch announced that it has begun mass production of silicon carbide chips which will be supplied to car manufacturers around the world and which will be very important for electric cars .

A bright future is looming for silicon carbide semiconductors. We aim to become world leaders in the production of these essential components for mobility; electric.

Bosch had been working on this project for some time. Two years ago, in fact, the company announced its intention to accelerate the development of these chips and start production. For this, Bosch had developed its own production process with which from the beginning of 2021 it builds these chips but only as models for customer tests. Now, however, & egrave; real large-scale production started. The company & agrave; says it has received many orders for these semiconductors. For this reason, it intends to increase the capacity in the future; of production. To achieve this goal, it is already; preparing the necessary changes to the Reutlingen plant to expand the production area.

At the same time, it is also working on the second generation of these chips which will be; ready in 2022.

LONGER AUTONOMY FOR ELECTRICS

For the development of production processes for these semiconductors, Bosch had the support of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy as part of the program & quot; Important Project of Common European Interest – (IPCEI) Microelectronics & quot ;.


Given the importance of these chips for mobility electricity, their demand is growing rapidly . The company & agrave; market research and consulting Yole estimates that the entire silicon carbide chip market will register. each year an average growth of 30% until 2025, reaching 2.5 billion dollars. At approximately $ 1.5 billion, the auto semiconductor market is expected to make up the largest share. great.
