SABIC introduces new dielectric film for high-voltage capacitors in EV inverters

SABIC has introduced its new 5-micron ELCRES HTV150 dielectric film for high-temperature, high-voltage capacitor applications such as EV traction inverters. The company says its new film withstands temperatures up to 150° C. The film is intended to support the transition from conventional silicon-based semiconductors to next-generation, wide-band-gap silicon carbide (SiC) technologies, improving inverter efficiency.  “Multiple… Read more »

Concept EV uses LEXAN windows to boost range

The relentless quest to build lighter vehicles is driven by the need to reduce emissions, but it sometimes produces other benefits as well. A German-based consortium including BMW and Daimler has built a concept EV with all-plastic windows that not only demonstrates gains in energy efficiency and range, but also delivers improved acceleration, vehicle handling… Read more »
