Delphi Technologies has secured its second largest power electronics award.
The supplier has won the business with an unnamed European OEM to supply its 800-volt inverters for the manufacturer's next generation of battery electric vehicles (BEVs).
The announcement follows on the heels of recent business wins in China for power electronics. Combined with its 800-volt win secured in 2019, its largest ever business award, the company maintains it is now positioned to be the major inverter supplier to three of the top four global premium OEMs in the world.
"We take great pride in knowing we have earned the respect of our customers to trust us with major shares of their most important e-drivelines," said Delphi Technologies CEO, Rick Dauch.
"To be an industry leader in the highly competitive electrification market is reflective of the technologies and engineering talent within our organisation. Our recent investments in electrification are starting to pay off."
The latest award is expected to launch in 2024 across the customers' BEVs and will also be the first introduction of Delphi Technologies' sixth generation of its proprietary Viper power switch. This inverter enables electrical systems up to 800 volts, significantly extending electric vehicle range and halving charging times when compared with today's 400-volt systems.
