Aixtron wins supplier award from Onsemi


Company awarded for fast production ramp-up at Onsemi’s SiC-fab in South Korea

Aixtron has received a supplier award from Onsemi for the rapid production ramp-up achieved using the new G10-SiC at Onsemi’s facility in Bucheon, South Korea, in record time.

The Onsemi facility is one of the words largest SiC fabs with a production capacity of more than one million 200 mm SiC wafers per year.

At the new site, Onsemi operates multiple new G10-SiC systems, and both companies worked closely together to not only install the new tools but also achieve major productivity improvements on-site: Together, the teams have improved tool operations, optimised maintenance procedures, all enabling a major increase in uptime and wafers output. The speed of the on-site support and the good collaboration also on data analysis resulted in further tool performance enhancements.

An Onsemi representative stated: “Thanks to the close cooperation with Aixtron, we were able to improve the already very high level of productivity of the installed base. The Aixtron team offered great on-site support and training and helped to optimise our operating and maintenance processes. With their mindset of only being satisfied if the tool is achieving the highest productivity the service team really made the difference.”

“We have worked hard to build what is likely today the largest SiC expert and service network worldwide to support our customers in their rapid production ramp ups. Therefore, it is a great honour that Onsemi, a leading manufacturer in the semiconductor industry, acknowledges our service excellence and honoured us with this prestigious award”, said Felix Grawert, CEO and president of Aixtron SE.
