Wolfspeed Selects AIXTRON Tools to Support 200mm Production

World’s leading silicon carbide manufacturer will implement AIXTRON’s G10-SiC.

Herzogenrath, April 18, 2024 – Today, AIXTRON (FSE: AIXA) announced Wolfspeed, Inc. (NYSE: WOLF), the global leader in silicon carbide technology, has placed multiple-tool orders in Q3 and Q4 2023 to utilize AIXTRON’s G10-SiC to help further ramp production for 200mm (8-inch) silicon carbide (SiC) epitaxial wafers.

“We’re pleased with the AIXTRON team’s efforts to support the expansion of our 200mm silicon carbide epitaxy process. The company’s G10-SiC has proven to be a suitable, reliable tool that will support our high-volume production needs currently on the Durham campus and ultimately at our new 200mm materials factory, The John Palmour Manufacturing Center for Silicon Carbide (The JP),” said Wolfspeed Chief Technology Officer, Elif Balkas. 

First launched in September 2022, AIXTRON’s G10-SiC has quickly become the tool of record for both 150mm and 200mm silicon carbide epitaxy. With the latest innovations made by AIXTRON, the system delivers best-in-class uniformities combined with the highest productivity, stability in manufacturing, and the lowest cost of ownership.

“We are proud Wolfspeed has chosen our G10-SiC as part of their epitaxy solution plan for Durham and The JP, which will be the world’s largest 200mm SiC materials factory. The G10-SiC enables excellent epitaxial performance in terms of quality and uniformity, while providing the lowest cost of ownership in the market,” said Dr. Felix Grawert, CEO and President of AIXTRON SE.

Silicon carbide is rapidly becoming the mainstream technology of choice for electric vehicles, AI data centers, e-mobility solutions and charging infrastructure worldwide. Silicon carbide semiconductors, distinguished by their superior performance, deliver significantly higher energy efficiency compared to traditional silicon-based power electronics, while steering the world towards a more sustainable future.
