Wolfspeed expands SiC wafer supply agreement

News

$225 million dollar supply agreement supports demand for SiC across several key industries

Wolfspeed has announced the expansion of an existing multi-year, long-term SiC wafer supply agreement, now worth approximately $225 million, with a leading power device company.

The expanded agreement calls for Wolfspeed to supply the company with 150 mm SiC bare and epitaxial wafers, reinforcing the company’s vision for an industry-wide transition from silicon to SiC semiconductor power devices.

“Wolfspeed has an unmatched level of experience with SiC and, as a result, is a key player in supplying the rapidly growing demand for SiC,” said Cengiz Balkas, SVP and GM of Materials for Wolfspeed. “This agreement further strengthens our long-time cooperation with a best-in-class power semiconductor manufacturer. This well-established partnership, paired with our most recent announcement of a multi-billion-dollar materials expansion in North Carolina, is a huge step forward in our mission of transitioning the industry from silicon to SiC.”

The supply agreement 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.
