Leading technology for SiC high-temperature processing

Wafers up to 200 mm

With our high-temperature furnaces for annealing and oxidation processes for SiC wafers up to 150 mm we are the global technology leader and supplier to renowned manufacturers of power electronics. Our next generation equipment for 200 mm wafers which is bridging-capable for 150 mm wafers enables our customers to reduce their costs by up to 23%.

R&D projects

centrotherm is consortium partner and technology provider of the European research projects TRANSFORM and REACTION, which are funded by the EU as part of the KDT JU (Key Digital Technologies Joint Undertaking) research program and national funding authorities. The projects aim to strengthen European competitiveness in SiC manufacturing and making the new technology industrially mature. The technology enables a significant increase of electrical energy efficiency.

In addition to technological and societal goals, the main goal is paving a way to a green economy, e.g. by a climate neutral mobility.
