Advanced Packaging Designs - Reliability and Prognostics

Research output: NRELManagement


This is a section in the Fuel Cell Technologies Office's Annual Progress Report that summarizes the Vehicle Technologies Office and the Electrical and Electronics Technical Team have proposed aggressive research and development targets aimed at improving power electronics technology to enable the mass market penetration of electric-drive vehicles. Achieving these aggressive power electronics targets will require a decrease in cost (year 2025 cost target: $2.70/kW) and an increase in power density (year 2025 power density target: 100 kW/L) as compared with current, on-road technology. Replacing traditional silicon device-based components with more efficient and higher temperature wide-bandgap semiconductor device-based components will enable increasing the power density.
