The commercial battle for next-generation power semiconductors is evolving. IGBTs, SiC and other technologies are geared for the niche-oriented markets at 1,700 volts and higher. But what is the best technology for the larger 600- and 1,200-volt markets? both super-junction MOSFETs and IGBTs are ramping up on 300mm wafers, making them less expensive than GaN and SiC. In comparison, SiC MOSFETs are ramping up on 100mm wafers, while GaN-on-silicon is running on 150mm substrates. This report analyzes and forecasts the traditional power semiconductor market as well as next generation devices. Market shares of vendors by type are presented.
Mainland China represents a huge opportunity for semiconductor manufacturers and equipment and materials suppliers. Massive investments in China’s semiconductor industry is paying off as internal production is making inroads on demand. The emerging semiconductor market will exhibit growth far in excess of any other country. This report analyzes Mainland China’s semiconductor and equipment industries, examining the technical, economic, and political issues that are shaping this nascent industry.
