Abstract: The price of oil consumption will in future further increase. The emission of exhaust gases like CO2 will be restricted by politic regulations and the desire of customers after green mobility drives OEM's to bring electric or hybrid vehicles on the market. So the automotive industry has to ensure more environmentally friendly mobility in the near future with respect to resources and emissions. The development of electro mobility currently is enforced by the worldwide competition of this emerging market.

Within the engine compartment of modern cars installation space is of major concern. Therefore small size and high integration level of the components are needed for automotive electronic control units. With novel integration of components into PCB technology new specific requirements are arising.

Power electronics have to be placed close to the electric motor or - for hybrid electronic vehicles - close to the combustion engine. Here temperature stability becomes the major requirement. In this work new concepts for control units and power modules with innovative materials, packaging technologies and cooling concepts are presented.
