Cree and ABB partner on silicon carbide for automotive and industrial applications

Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA and ABB’s Power Grids business have partnered to jointly expand the rollout of silicon carbide (SiC) in the rapidly growing high-power semiconductor market. The agreement incorporates the use of Cree’s Wolfspeed SiC-based semiconductors into ABB’s product portfolio, enabling Cree to broaden its customer base while accelerating ABB’s entry into the fast-expanding electric vehicle (EV) sector.

Cree’s products will be included as part of ABB’s power semiconductor product portfolio, across power grids, train and traction, industrial and e-mobility sectors. Specifically, Cree’s SiC devices will be assembled into ABB power modules.

“Cree is committed to leading the global semiconductor market’s transition to more energy-efficient, higher-performing silicon carbide-based solutions. ABB has a long-standing heritage as the world market leader in industrial power electrification solutions, so expanding our work with them will help increase the adoption of transformative and eco-friendly alternatives in the power and automotive sectors,” comments Cree’s CEO Gregg Lowe. “Together, this partnership delivers Wolfspeed silicon carbide into new markets, such as power grids and high-speed trains for the continued advancement of the power, traction, industrial and EV markets,” he adds.

“The partnership with Cree supports ABB’s strategy in developing energy-efficient silicon carbide semiconductors in the automotive and industrial sectors,” says Rainer K√§smaier, managing director of semiconductors at ABB’s Power Grids business.
