Diamond-based electronics, capable of handling higher power densities and operating at elevated temperatures, enable more compact and efficient power electronics, directly translating to weight savings critical for EV range and efficiency. As the number of hybrid/electric vehicles increases, diamond-based devices can reduce power losses, enhance fuel economy, and offer greater flexibility in vehicle design by allowing for smaller power conversion circuitry.

  • Simplified cooling requirements: The ability to operate efficiently at higher temperatures drastically reduces, or even eliminates, the need for complex cooling systems required by silicon-based electronics. This reduction in cooling requirements decreases the vehicle's weight and complexity, leading to enhanced overall efficiency.
  • Increased range and improved efficiency: The weight reduction from smaller electronics and simplified cooling systems, combined with the superior efficiency of diamond-based components, significantly increases vehicle range. Additionally, diamond semiconductors experience lower electrical losses compared to silicon and silicon carbide, ensuring more of the battery's energy is used for propulsion rather than being lost as heat.
