SAT Group is involved in WInSiC4AP project. This project will develop innovative and reliable technology bricks for efficient and cost-effective applications end-user products (application systems and subsystems) based on SiC technology.
Relevance and impact
Reliability, efficiency improvements, cost and size reductions, designed- and manufactured-in-EU are the most relevant challenges addressed to lead to a strong European supply chain for SiC converters. The project will be supported with synergy by ECSEL JU and ESI funding, with relevant economic and social impact envisage in a less development region of Union. The ambition of WInSiC4AP is to play a primary role towards excellence in Europe: primary access to IPs for the relevant essential capabilities, competitiveness of manufacturing in Europe.
Our contribution / where we are involved
The goal of SAT research team is to contribute to the project by developing a complete, modern and technologically innovative pilot line that will improve the performance of some phases of the SiC wafers lavoration. Specifically, the etching, cleaning and drying.
The line includes 2 Chemical Distribution Systems (CDS) and 1 Single Wafer Wet Bench for 6” SiC wafers. Suitable for the attack, etching, and cleaning processes of the SiC wafers.
