centrotherm as project partner for TRANSFORM

Together with 33 European project partners, Robert Bosch GmbH is coordinating the European funding project TRANSFORM - Trusted European SiC Value Chain for a greener Economy. centrotherm is involved in this project as a project partner and leading supplier of high-temperature furnaces for post-implantation annealing of silicon carbide wafers.

The common project goal is to establish and strengthen the complete value chain from the substrate to the silicon carbide-based energy converter in Europe. Due to the rapidly growing energy demand and the goal of climate neutrality of the European Union by 2050, energy efficiency plays a central role. The use of silicon carbide as a semiconductor in power electronics is an important building block for achieving these goals, not only in e-mobility. Depending on the application, efficiency gains of between 6 % and 30 % are expected. In addition, TRANSFORM is expected to help significantly strengthen the competitive position of European technology on the global market.

With its high-temperature furnaces for post-implantation annealing of 150 mm silicon carbide (SiC) wafers, centrotherm already ranks among the leading suppliers. centrotherm systems are in production at renowned manufacturers worldwide.

centrotherm has already contributed as a project partner to the European REACTION funding project for the development of the first factory for silicon carbide applications on 200 mm wafers with the development of a new generation of the c.ACTIVATOR and c.OXIDATOR.

The official project website was launched yesterday at www.sic-transform.eu.

This project has received funding from the ECSEL Joint Undertaking (JU) under grant agreement No 101007237. The JU receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, Austria, Czech Republic, Spain.
