News

Agreement to boost commercial expansion of SiC in automotive and industrial applications

Cree and ON Semiconductor have announced the execution of a multi-year agreement where Cree will produce and supply its Wolfspeed SiC wafers to ON Semiconductor.

The agreement, valued at more than $85 million, provides for the supply of Cree's advanced 150mm SiC (SiC) bare and epitaxial wafers to ON Semiconductor for use in high-growth markets, such as electric vehicle and industrial applications.

“ON Semiconductor continues to be a leader in driving the development of energy efficient innovations and devices,” said ON Semiconductor VP and chief procurement officer Jeffrey Wincel. “Partnering with Cree is essential in maintaining a world-class supply base. This agreement supports our commitment to growing automotive and industrial applications and ensuring the availability of industry-leading SiC that helps engineers solve their unique design challenges.”

“We are committed to leading the global semiconductor market's transition from silicon to SiC solutions and are pleased to support ON Semiconductor as we work to accelerate this market,” said Cree CEO Gregg Lowe. “This is the fourth major long-term agreement for SiC materials that we have announced in the past year and a half. We will continue to drive SiC adoption and availability through ongoing wafer supply agreements, such as this, and our recently announced major capacity expansion.”



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
