SK Siltron CSS to supply silicon carbide wafers to Infineon

Infineon Technologies AG of Munich, Germany has formalized an agreement for compound semiconductor wafer maker SK Siltron CSS of Auburn, MI, USA (a subsidiary of South Korea-based SK Siltron, a part of the SK Group) to provide it with 150mm silicon carbide (SiC) wafers, supporting the production of SiC semiconductors. In a subsequent phase, SK Siltron CSS will assist Infineon’s transition to 200mm-diameter SiC wafers.

“For Infineon, supply chain resiliency is about implementing a multi-supplier strategy and thriving in times of adversity to create new growth opportunities and drive decarbonization,” says Infineon’s chief procurement officer Angelique van der Burg. “We are excited to partner with SK Siltron CSS to serve the growing SiC demand of our broad customer base with new energy-efficient and top-quality products, matching the highest standards in the SiC market,” she adds.

“With decades of experience in silicon carbide materials and manufacturing, we bring unparalleled knowledge to our sustainably manufactured compound semiconductor solutions,” claims SK Siltron CSS’s CEO Jianwei Dong Ph.D. “This long-term supply agreement marks the synergy of our extensive expertise and Infineon's vision to make life easier, safer and greener for generations to come.”
