SGL Carbon to supply Wolfspeed SiC fab
SGL Carbon expands capacities to support Wolfspeed’s growth in SiC high-performance applications
SGL Carbon and Wolfspeed have entered into a supply agreement, based on their established business relationship.
SGL Carbon will supply graphite components to Wolfspeed for its US production, as the company ramps its capacity to meet steepening demand for SiC technology and devices.
SGL Carbon will provide materials for Wolfspeed’s recently opened Mohawk Valley Fab, the world’s first and currently largest 200mm SiC wafer fab, as well the company’s John Palmour Manufacturing Center for SiC, a materials manufacturing facility currently under construction in Siler City, NorthCarolina.
“We see SGL Carbon as a strong partner in graphite solutions that are needed for the expanding SiC semiconductor demand. SGL Carbon’s position in the market, their deep technical understanding, and comprehensive product portfolio are invaluable for the commercial ramp of the industry,” said Jeff Ferraro, SVP of Global Procurement and Planning at Wolfspeed.
In the SiC semiconductor production process, graphite components are essential ingredients. From the synthesis of the SiC powder to the finished wafer, SGL Carbon offers customised solutions made of isostatic graphite and carbon composites, as well as insulation materials.
