Open Silicon Carbide wafer foundry capacity is currently very constrained, with long queue times and cycle times reported. This makes it difficult for new entrants to take custom, innovative, new device concepts to market. Clas-SiC have adopted the open, pure-play foundry model, supported by Process Design Kits, which allows custom devices to be designed for new market entrants, fabricated with low risk & cost efficiency, and offering a fast route to market. This is enabling innovation and the opportunity for more advanced concepts supporting advanced customer products.
David has a strong background in process integration and device engineering, with more than 24 years experience on silicon devices and more than 18 years of Silicon Carbide experience across many SiC device technologies including Schottky diodes, PiN diodes, MOSFET’s, JFET’s and MESFET’s. At Clas-SiC, David led the team to successful JEDEC-like qualification of Clas-SiC’s SiC Diode and MOSFET SiC platforms.David has a first class honours BEng in Electrical & Electronic Engineering and a PGCert in Advanced Silicon Processing. He has published more than 10 SiC processing papers, and has four SiC related patents to his name.
