New manufacturing process for SiC power devices opens market to more competition
Raleigh NC (SPX) Oct 10, 2017
Researchers from North Carolina State University are rolling out a new manufacturing process and chip design for silicon carbide (SiC) power devices, which can be used to more efficiently regulate power in technologies that use electronics. The process - called PRESiCE - was developed with support from the PowerAmerica Institute funded by the Department of Energy to make it easier for companies to enter the SiC marketplace and develop new products. "PRESiCE will allow more companies to get into th ... read more
