Faraday Future awarded patent for FF Echelon Inverter

Faraday Future

EV startup Faraday Future (FF) has applied for more than 100 patents over the last year. This week it announced that its first one has been granted, for a new assembly process called “FF Echelon Inverter.”

The inverter is designed to be small and simple. FF claims it achieves 20-30% greater power density than competitors’ inverters.

“Condensing the number of transistors and other complex components enhances the inverter’s overall stability and dependability allowing us to accomplish far more, with fewer materials,” said Senior Director of Electric Drive Silva Hiti.

Electrek observed that FF’s inverter invites comparison to Tesla’s Model S inverter, which has a peak power capability of 320 kW, and reportedly uses an off-the-shelf insulated-gate bipolar transistor.

“Tesla used 20 years old power module packaging technology to build the fastest electric luxury car on earth,” said power electronics market analyst Alex Avron.
