The PowerAmerica institute – a member of Manufacturing USA – has issued its 2018 Call for Projects, which seeks projects spanning 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020.

PowerAmerica aims to save energy and create US manufacturing jobs by accelerating the development and large-scale adoption of wide-bandgap (WBG) semiconductor technology made with silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) in power electronics systems. Located at North Carolina State University (NCSU) in Raleigh, NC, the institute is funded by the Department of Energy, industry partners and the state of North Carolina, and has a member portfolio representing more than 45 leading companies in the wide-bandgap semiconductor field.

The 2018 Call for Projects is focused primarily on the manufacturing of SiC and GaN power semiconductor devices, wide-bandgap power electronics architectures and assemblies, and packaging and manufacturing processes with the potential to improve performance, lower cost, and create US manufacturing jobs. Demonstration of WBG devices in high-volume commercially viable power electronic applications is desired.

Teaming between companies, and between companies/national laboratories/universities is required. All projects require a 1:1 cost share.

The concept paper submission is due on 9 October (at 9pm EDT). The Full Proposal submission deadline is 4 December (at 9pm EST).
