Pierre Delatte is CTO and co-founder of CISSOID. He has more than 25 years of experience in the field of Integrated Circuits (IC’s) Design and Power Electronics. He started his carrier at UCL Microelectronics Laboratory where he worked on the design of high-speed analogue and RF IC's based on Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) technology.
At CISSOID, he worked on product definition, design, packaging and manufacturing of high-temperature IC’s for sensor interfaces, power management and power conversion. In 2010, he initiated Company’s R&D activities related to Silicon Carbide (SiC) technology including Gate Driver IC design and high-temperature power module packaging. Today, he is driving the development of SiC Intelligent Power Modules and CISSOID’s SiC Inverter platform for E-Mobility Applications.
Pierre Delatte holds a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering Degree from the Université catholique de Louvain.
Besides the mainstream EV market, E-Mobility encompasses a number of niche and emerging applications led by agile mid-size or start-up companies. This includes fully electric super cars, new autonomous vehicle concepts, E-Trucks or E-buses, specialty and industrial vehicles. Electrification is also entering other transportation markets like electric and hybrid VTOL or electric boats for examples. For these new applications, engineers need to solve e-powertrain hardware and software design challenges quickly and generally with limited engineering resources. Cissoid’s SiC inverter platform alleviates these challenges by bringing together the key elements needed in a drive system: This “grey-box” hardware/software platform comprises a SiC intelligent power module (IPM), a real-time controller board and customisable e-motor control software, a liquid cooler reference design, and a specially designed high-density DC-link capacitor.
