CSC participates in £9.8m APC-funded UK project ESCAPE

The Compound Semiconductor Centre Ltd (CSC) – a joint venture founded in 2015 between Cardiff University and epiwafer foundry and substrate maker IQE plc of Cardiff, Wales, UK – is a partner in a project that has been awarded £9.8m in funding through the Advanced Propulsion Centre UK Ltd (APC) at the University of Warwick.

The project ESCAPE (End-to-end Supply Chain development for Automotive Power Electronics) aims to create a complete end-to-end supply chain for next-generation silicon carbide (SiC) power electronics, which is a key component to be used in all electric vehicles (EVs), whether automotive, railway, marine or aviation.

The funding is part of the UK government’s £33m investment through APC to advance the UK’s low-carbon automotive capability and to develop the next generation of low-carbon vehicles, helping the automotive sector to build a prosperous low-carbon future. Led by McLaren Applied Technologies, ESCAPE is one of five projects awarded funding, ranging from the development of high-performance battery packs and electrified construction equipment to hydrogen-powered engines.

Twelve other partners will support the creation of the integrated supply chain, including other industry leaders such as AESIN, Clas-Sic Wafer Fab, the Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult, Exawatt, Lyra Electronics, MaxPower Semiconductor, Tribus-D, Turbo Power Systems and The University of Warwick.

“The demand for silicon carbide power components is growing rapidly, and we welcome the opportunity to work with our partners to ensure the UK has a world-class future supply chain in this critical technology,” says CSC director Wyn Meredith.
