News
Company to supply 150 mm SiC bare and epitaxial wafers to power device firm

Cree has signed a strategic long-term agreement to produce and supply its Wolfspeed SiC wafers to one of the world's leading power device companies. The agreement, valued at more than $85 million, governs Cree's supply of advanced 150 mm SiC bare and epitaxial wafers during this period of extraordinary growth and demand for SiC power devices.

"Cree is committed to increasing and accelerating the adoption of SiC-based solutions throughout the semiconductor industry. This customer's importance to the power device industry is well known, so partnering with a leading power semiconductor company such as this is another big step in that commitment," said Gregg Lowe, CEO of Cree. "We are extremely pleased to help drive adoption of SiC in even more applications. As the world leader in SiC, Cree is continuing to expand capacity to meet market demands with our industry-leading wafer technology to help achieve a new, more efficient future."

Wolfspeed,aCree Company, is a leading manufacture of SiC wafers and epitaxial wafers. The supply agreement, to be fulfilled through a Cree distributor, enables SiC applications in broad markets such as renewable energy and storage, electric vehicles, charging infrastructure, industrial power supplies, traction and variable speed drives.

Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
