ST looking to dominate SiC market


Company predicts 50 percent of the power semiconductors market will be based on SiC

ST Microelectronics aims to secure a third of the SiC market, which is projected to be a $3.7 billion market by 2025.

As reported by EE Times, Marco Monti, president of ST’s automotive and discrete group, said at the SiC plant in Catania, Italy last week, that he believed 50 percent of the power semiconductors market in 30 years will be based on SiC. While the company currently outsources the supply of ingots and substrates (with the epitaxy and wafer processing carried out in Catania) he said ST wants to have more control of the supply chain and bring it internal.

In January this year, ST announced a multi-year agreement with Cree who would produce and supply its 150mm SiC bare and epitaxial wafers to ST. In February, ST signed an agreement to acquire a majority stake in Swedish SiC wafer manufacturer Norstel.

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.
