onsemi mangedobler produktionskapacitet på SiC fab i Tjekkiet
Over de næste to år vil onsemi investere i en udvidelse af firmaets SiC waferfab i Tjekkiet, så produktionskapaciteten kan udvides med en faktor 16 i forhold til nu (in english).
onsemi, a leader in intelligent power and sensing technologies, has just celebrated the inauguration of its expanded silicon carbide (SiC) fab in Roznov, Czech Republic. Starting in 2019, onsemi added SiC polished wafer and SiC epitaxy (EPI) wafer production to its existing silicon polished and epitaxy wafer and die manufacturing in Roznov.
Having outgrown the original site, reconstruction of a new building began last year to further expand wafer and SiC EPI manufacturing.
Over the next two years, this expansion will increase the site’s SiC production capabilities by 16 times and create 200 jobs by the end of 2024. So far onsemi has invested more than $150 million in the Roznov site and plans to spend an additional $300 million through 2023.
- Together with our SiC Boule production in Hudson, NH, these increased SiC manufacturing capabilities enable onsemi to provide customers the critical supplyassurance to meet the rapidly growing demand for SiC-based solutions, says Simon Keeton, executive vice president and general manager Power Solutions Group at onsemi.
- Full control over ourSiC manufacturing supply chain and the market-leading efficiency of our products underscore onsemi’s progress toward SiC leadership. SiC is critical for enabling efficiency in electric vehicles (EVs), EV charging, and energy infrastructure and is an important contributor on the path to decarbonization.
