Power Electronics Value Chain (Automotive)

With the UK government’s targets for net zero and decarbonising road transport, the UK’s well-established automotive industry is transitioning rapidly to new electrified powertrain technologies.

This value chain map provides a framework for growing the UK’s semiconductor manufacturing industry, whilst highlighting dependencies of contribution through the supply chain.

Developed by the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC), with experts from industry and academia, the updated power electronics value chain shows an end-to-end view of materials and components required for volume manufacturing of automotive inverters, DC-DC converters and onboard chargers (OBC).
