II-VI Licenses SiC Technology From GE


Company plans to scale capacity of 150 mm SiC materials while also scaling volume production of 200 mm materials technology to meet growing demand

  1. II‐VI has signed an agreement with General Electric to license technology to manufacture SiC devices and modules for power electronics.

The rapid growth in electric vehicles, renewable energy, microgrids, and power supplies for data storage and communications is driving the strong demand for SiC-based power electronics.

“We believe that SiC-based power electronics materials and components will become increasingly deployed in electrification systems including, for example, in electric vehicles, industrial infrastructure, and large data centres, and so we continue to invest to position II-VI in strategic points of the evolving supply chains to enable key customers,” said Vincent D. Mattera, Jr., CEO, II-VI Incorporated. “As such, we intend to remain focused on executing our recently announced plan to scale our capacity of 150 mm SiC materials by 5-10x while scaling volume production of a differentiated 200 mm materials technology to meet the anticipated growing demand over the next five years.”

“We're excited to enter into this agreement with II-VI, which positions II-VI well to capitalise on the growing market demand for SiC-based electronics,” said Joe Krisciunas, president of GE Aviation Electrical Power Systems. “At the same time, it will broaden GE's commercial reach beyond the industry sectors we already serve with SiC technology.”

GE and its industrial businesses, led by Aviation, continue to aggressively develop next-generation SiC for new applications. The business offers electrical power products with power levels from kilowatts to megawatts for harsh environments in aerospace, industrial, and military applications.
