SEMIKRON and Danfoss Silicon Power announced a merger to create a joint business specialised in power electronics focusing on power semiconductor modules. With an existing workforce of more than 3,500 dedicated power electronic specialists, the new SEMIKRON-Danfoss will provide world-class technology expertise as the leading partner in Power Electronics. The merger comes with a firm commitment to future investments, paving the way for green growth and a more sustainable, energy efficient and decarbonized future. 

SEMIKRON-Danfoss will be a central enabler of this transition. The electrical power will be in the future the most important energy source. The power semiconductor module is at the heart of all power electronic solutions. The module is built of power semiconductors that makes it possible to convert and control the electrical power. With the rise of e-mobility, the demand for electric vehicles is expected to increase by 30% each year over the next years. 

SEMIKRON-Danfoss will leverage its strong core business in industrial- and renewable power module applications and will utilize the partnership to target a leading position in Automotive power modules. 

SEMIKRON CEO Karl-Heinz Gaubatz added that it is an exciting moment for them. By combining SEMIKRON’s expertise as a pioneer for semiconductor technology with more than 70 years of experience in the development of top-class power modules and systems and the strength, innovativeness, and fast-paced operations of Danfoss Silicon Power and the Danfoss Group we are positioned ideally to become one of the strongest players in power electronics.
 
SEMIKRON is one of the world's leading manufacturers of power modules and systems primarily in the medium output range (approx. 2 kW up to 10 MW). Our products are at the heart of modern energy-efficient motor drives and industrial automation systems.
