  • Topic: Silicon Carbide Power Devices Enable Modern Power Applications

Recent advances of silicon carbide (SiC) power MOSFETs enable improved performance of a wide range of modern power applications. These SiC devices provide system advantages over silicon based power devices. These advantages include lower power losses, increased efficiency, and reduced thermal management needs. The timely device offerings of SiC MOSFETs by semiconductor suppliers is synergistic with an increased deployment of advanced power systems in the areas of automotive electric and hybrid electric vehicles, renewable energy, telecommunications and enterprise computing. A SiC ecosystem supports the technical adoption and production supply of these products.

  • Topic: The Power Electronics Market: Main Trends and Dynamics in an Increasingly Electrified World

The global power electronics market accounts for $17.5B, with a 4.3% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) from 2019-2025, mainly pushed by automatization, efficiency regulation and clean energy goals. New applications are also being pushed, like charging DC for EV which is required to support the EV growth. Within the power market, we can differentiate three different major driving components: silicon MOSFETs, IGBT modules and Wide Band Gap (WBG) devices.

Today, the largest share of the power device market is for silicon MOSFET devices. We estimate that the demand for electrified vehicles will surpass 30 million units per year by 2025, also causing a steep increase in demand for IGBT modules. Many players have announced investments in 200 and 300mm fabs to cope with the huge demand on devices for automotive applications, at the same time as industrial applications are also growing. Nevertheless, WBG semiconductors are expected to evolve very rapidly to multi-billion-dollar businesses, driven by the adoption of SiC MOSFET in EV/HEVs, such as Tesla, BYD and many more to come.

This presentation will cover the highlights and dynamics of the power electronics market. We will analyse the main drivers of demand and technology trends for both silicon and WBG.

  • Topic: Advances in Etch Processing for Fabrication of High Voltage Power Devices on 300mm Wafers

To support applications in consumer electronics, automotive, energy generation and data storage, the demand for power discretes and modules was expected to grow from $17.5B in 2019 to $22.5B in 2020 – a CAGR of 4.3%

To meet this demand, the power electronics industry will not only need to continually improve device design and performance, but also deploy new manufacturing processes that will allow these devices to be manufactured cost effectively in increasingly high volume. This will include the transition to fabrication of power electronics on 200mm and increasingly 300mm wafers. The capability to achieve highly uniform plasma and wet chemical etching on 200mm and 300mm wafers will be critical to achieving this.

In this presentation, the highly challenging etch processes that are critical to the fabrication of key power devices will be reviewed. The presentation will also consider the technical challenges and enabling solutions in the fabrication of wide-band gap semiconductor devices based upon GaN technology.

  • Topic: New Wide Bandgap Power Semiconductors Speed Up Car Electrification

The quest for increasingly efficient power conversion products in EVs is accelerating the development and deployment of wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductors, such as silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) technologies.

Offering excellent on-resistance under high voltages, higher switching capabilities, and the ability to operate under harsh conditions, SiC MOSFETs are today used in the EV’s main systems, including inverters, on-board chargers, DC-DC converters, and charging stations.

GaN is complementary to SiC and stretches from 100 to 900V. GaN transistors are already used in power conversion applications, and are considered as a good alternative to mainstream, silicon-based transistors in multiple domains. The power GaN is based on silicon substrates and can therefore be manufactured in existing CMOS fabs, thereby raising its competitiveness.
