Semikron builds strength in hybrid and electric vehicle market

09 June 2010

Semikron International has strengthened its position in the hybrid and electric vehicle powertrain market by taking over the majority of Compact Dynamics GmbH, a specialist developer of electrical drives and control systems. The acquisition will enable power electronics specialist, Semikron to offer development competence from power electronics to electric motors.

Semikrons aim is to develop innovative, lightweight and compact systems with high efficiency, in order to meet the demand for highly compact drives combining state-of-the-art power electronics and control systems.

We complement each other perfectly, said Dirk Heidenreich (pictured), CEO of the Semikron Group. Both our companies have long ranging experience in power electronic systems and are very innovative.
Following the joint venture with Magna in June 2009 and the launch of the new Semikron SKAI2 IGBT and MOSFET systems for hybrid and electric vehicles in May 2010, this investment is regarded by both companies as another step towards 'innovative electromobility'.
