Within this presentation I give a short technology overview of state-of-the-art die attach and substrate technologies applicable to different power electronics for hybridization and full electric vehicles. For high power applications and more sophisticated real electric vehicle applications I give examples of more exotic materials both for die attach and substrate technologies. I describe strategies for layout, design and choice of suitable material combinations from automotive series production of real products already existent in the field. Examples for electrified water pumps, three-phase inverters for 48 V and high voltage applications, in-wheel electric driving applications, DC-DC converters with wide-bandgap semiconductors for different power levels between few hundreds of Watt up to 200 kWatts are presented. Last I present latest R&D work both for highly efficient power and lighting electronics for next generation electric vehicles.
