Power Electronics / Semiconductor / Cleantech
Ascatron is a Swedish based scale-up company that produces advanced Silicon Carbide (SiC) epitaxy material for global customers since 2011. It provides next generation SiC power semiconductors radically reducing losses in power converters.
The high voltage power devices are based on Ascatron’s proprietary 3DSiC® material technology with buried doping structures to reduce the surface electric field. This gives very robust devices with lower losses and reliable operation at full power. Target applications are high voltage power electronics used in industry, automotive and renewable energy.
In August 2020, Ascatron was acquired by II-VI Incorporated, a leading manufacturer of high-power semiconductor laser components.
