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:

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

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

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. 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. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove 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.
