Yole to host conference on SiC power market

Yole and the SiC Power Centre and the Enterprise Europe Network are hosting a European event, taking place between June 9th and 11th in Stockholm, Sweden
In its latest technology & market analysis, entitled “SiC Market”, Yole Développement identifies two scenarios for SiC industry evolution.

“The optimistic scenario will see SiC devices used commercially in EV/HEV from 2015 onwards, taking 11 percent of the market from silicon IGBT devices by 2020,” explains Philippe Roussel, Business Unit Manager, Power Electronics & Compound Semi at Yole Développement. “In the pessimistic scenario, EV/HEV implementation won’t start until 2017/2018, making PV inverters the number one SiC application by 2020”.

Today, there is considerable room for increasing SiC device usage in PV inverter applications.

According to Yole, “Each inverter manufacturer’s product line-up includes only one or two SiC models among dozens, but it’s a very positive starting point.” Indeed, SiC power device industry revenue reached $76 million in 2012, including R&D but excluding military use.

PV inverter producers are the second industry to broadly adopt SiC devices - the first being manufacturers using SiC for power factor correction in high-end server power supplies.

Yole will present its latest SiC industry analysis at the 2013 International SiC Power Electronics Applications Workshop (ISiCPEAW). Yole, along with the SiC Power Centre and the Enterprise Europe Network, have combined their industry knowledge to create this unique European event, taking place between June 9th and 11th in Stockholm, Sweden.

During this one-of-a-kind workshop, industrials and R&D institutes will exchange information about SiC technology, establish new contacts and explore business opportunities.

The ISiCPEAW workshop’s key features include:

·         Information exchange regarding the SiC industry, its technology and market trends

·         A clear view of key players and their technologies

·         Identification of the various SiC applications

·         A keen understanding of the SiC value chain and today’s technical challenges

The ISiCPEAW program is now available

Keynote presentations include:

“Parasitic Inductances in Power Electronics,” by Reinhold Bayerer, Infineon Technologies

“MOSFET,” by Jeffrey Casady, Cree

“Power Modules with SiC Devices,” by Goran Majumdar, Mitsubishi

The ISiCPEAW 2013 agenda also includes a session dedicated to the SiC market & roadmap, moderated by Yole Développement and Fairchild Semiconductor.

The detailed agenda is available via the ISiCPEAW website: http://www.b2match.eu/isicpeaw2013.
