Clas-SiC combines some of the best and most experienced talent in the industry, state of the art Silicon Carbide facilities, unique design to manufacture processes and technical know-how to drive innovation in the semiconductor power industry.
Clas-SiC Wafer Fab is the world’s first dedicated open foundry to manufacture Silicon Carbide power semi-conductors. We operate from our custom built and fully fitted out Class 100 clean room facility, with state of the art 150mm semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
Silicon Carbide (SiC) wafer and compound semiconductor technology is fast emerging as the key enabler in smaller, lighter and more energy efficient power systems of the future. Growth has historically resulted from adoption of SiC diodes, and more recently MOSFETS in renewable energy applications, and greener more efficient air conditioning systems. Demand is outstripping supply with growth set to increase exponentially as the technology is adopted across global initiatives for more electric transportation to include Automotive, Rail and Commercial Aviation.
Clas-SiC provides accelerated R&D and time to market for new device designs.
We have invested in low to medium scale SiC production capacity to deliver time to market advantage. Customer R&D is supported by over 200 man-years of Silicon Carbide processing expertise. A library of “off the shelf” Process Module IP has been created to minimise technical risk and optimise both R&D cycles and manufacturability.
Based in Lochgelly, Fife Clas-SiC currently has over 40 staff, the majority being amongst the most highly skilled Silicon Carbide processing engineers in the world.
