Cree And ABB Announce SiC Partnership


Cree devices will be assembled into modules for ABB’s power semiconductor portfolio across power grids, train and traction, industrial and e-mobility sectors

Cree has announced a partnership to jointly expand the rollout of SiC in the rapidly-growing high-power semiconductor market. The agreement incorporates the use of Cree's Wolfspeed silicon carbide-based semiconductors into ABB's product portfolio, enabling Cree to broaden its customer base while accelerating ABB's entry into the fast-expanding EV sector.

Cree's products will be included as part of ABB's power semiconductor product portfolio, across power grids, train and traction, industrial and e-mobility sectors. Specifically, Cree's SiC devices will be assembled into ABB power modules.

“Cree is committed to leading the global semiconductor market's transition to more energy efficient, higher performing SiC-based solutions. ABB has a longstanding heritage as the world market leader in industrial power electrification solutions, so expanding our work with them will help increase the adoption of transformative and eco-friendly alternatives in the power and automotive sectors,” said Cree CEO Gregg Lowe.

“Together, this partnership delivers Wolfspeed SiC into new markets, such as power grids and high-speed trains for the continued advancement of the power, traction, industrial and EV markets.”

“The partnership with Cree supports ABB's strategy in developing energy-efficient SiC semiconductors in the automotive and industrial sectors,” said Rainer Käsmaier, managing director of semiconductors at ABB's Power Grids business. “It emphasises ABB's commitment to continuous technological innovation to shape the future of a smarter and greener society.”
