Company looks to meet growing demand for SiC

Showa Denko KK (SDK) has launched mass production of SiC single crystal wafers with a diameter of 6 inches (150 mm), which are used as materials for SiC epitaxial wafers*for power semiconductors.

The demand for SiC power semiconductors is increasing rapidly in various fields, especially those for use in xEVs, railcars, and industrial equipment. In addtion, a number of SDK customers have adopted SDK's SiC epitaxial wafers made from the in-house produced 6-inch SiC wafers.
