KEC Is Designated for National Task for Development of Key Component in Next-Generation Power Semiconductor for Electric Automobile and New Renewable Energy

KEC (President Chang-sup Hwang), a company specializing in non-memory semi-conductors, mentioned that the company has been designated for national task for development of 1200V trench type SiC MOSFET device for electric automobile and new renewable energy device for electric automobile, which is the Key Industrial Technology Development Project conducted by Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy.

The purpose of this national task is to secure Korea’s global competitiveness through localization of future growth dynamics in materials and parts industry and develop and commercialize the next-generation power semiconductor (SiC) essential for eco-friendly automobile and new renewable energy industry which will lead the 4th industrial revolution. Especially, it was told that as the next-generation power semiconductor (SiC) is national key project, institute with the best possibility of commercialization was designated.

Personnel at KEC mentioned that “It is expected that through this national project, both energy consumption reduction and stability essential for electric automobile and eco-friendly renewable energy industry could be achieved, through weight lightening and higher efficiency of components which handle high temperature, velocity, or output secured through SiC, the next-generation semiconductor material with fine material property.” The personnel also mentioned that “It is expected that this could be the chance to secure national competitiveness in the next-generation semiconductor material sector through localization of SiC power semiconductor the entire amount of which is currently imported, and enhance corporate value through preoccupation of electric automobile market and eco-friendly energy market which are expected to grow much further.”

It is expected that KEC would be able to not only expand its ground in electric automobile component market but also secure technical capability equivalent to that of prestigious overseas competitors, through securement of core technologies in electric automobile electronic parts and materials sector and industrial semiconductor sector, triggered by this designation for national task for the next-generation power semiconductor and commercialization of BMS diode module for electric automobiles KEC recently developed in joint development with LG Chem.

KEC (President Chang-sup Hwang), a company specializing in non-memory semi-conductors, is an electric component manufacturer company which has been focusing on semiconductor industry for 49 years since its establishment at 1969, and its technical capability has been recognized by prestigious Korean and overseas electronics companies. To keep up with the waves of the 4th industrial revolution, KECis making changes from consumer market including smart phone and appliances to automotive and industrial semiconductor companyand is consolidating the foundation.
