Munro & Associates, TechInsights, and Strategy Analytics Present On Semi-Conductor Industry June 15th and 17th

Munro & Associates is teaming up with TechInsights and Strategy Analytics for a joint webinar on the current state of the semi-conductor industry.  Each team will be presenting on their respective expertise with Strategy Analytics speaking about the forecast for light duty EV vehicles, including infrastructure, legislation, market demand, and incentives, as well as the future of microchips and power electronics including who they think will be winners or losers in this dynamic market.

TechInsights will open up their store of information from their teardowns of the leading silicon carbide MOSFET technologies they have seen and where they think the application of different chip materials (Si, SiC, and GaN) will best fit as well as where major producers stand with respect to quality and reliability.

Finally, Munro will present on several of the Inverters they have studied in their Inverter Benchmarking and Cost Study including including the Tesla Model 3 and Y, the Jaguar I-Pace, and the Nissan Leaf.  Munro will be comparing the different applications of Si and SiC in the I-Pace, Leaf, and Teslas respectively including infrastructure and practical findings.  If you are potentially interested in purchasing our inverter report, this webinar should wet your appetite for more and give an insight into what’s in the inverter reports.

The webinar will be taking place June 15, 2021: 3pm – 4:30pm UTC for our Western audience and June 17, 2021: 6am – 7:30am UTC for our Asian/eastern audience.

Industry Week 7 Developments Shaping Automotive in 2021

Sandy Munro get featured in the Industry Week article “Back to the Future: 7 Developments Shaping Automotive in 2021 and Beyond” by Laura Putre. On page three of this seven slide article entitled, “Battery Battles Heating Up”, we see the familiar picture of Sandy Munro working on and explaining his mock up of the battery bay system using example replica’s of the new Tesla 4680 batteries.

The article goes on to explain why everyone is watching Tesla’s developments with both awe and fear and why Sandy thinks that the legacy automakers are going to have a hard time catching up.  It’s a great article for some sobering statistics on Tesla’s new batteries as well as where the legacy automakers stand.
