Anvil Semiconductors has developed a unique technology to enable the production of silicon carbide (SiC) power switches at a similar cost to conventional silicon by growing thin layers of SiC by heteroepitaxy on silicon wafers rather than using expensive bulk SiC substrates. This innovation enables wafer costs to be reduced by a factor of 20 and opens up the possibility of fabricating SiC devices at similar costs to those of silicon.
