CVD Equipment receives extra order for ten PVT-150 systems for SiC growth
CVD Equipment Corp of Central Islip, NY, USA (a designer and maker of chemical vapor deposition, gas control and other equipment and process solutions for developing and manufacturing materials and coatings) has received an additional order for ten high-performance PVT-150 systems. For delivery in first-half 2023, the systems will be used to grow 150mm-diameter monocrystalline silicon carbide (SiC) boules, for processing into SiC wafers used in power electronics.
Physical vapor transport (PVT) is the leading manufacturing method used to grow SiC boules for wafer production. As the demand for SiC devices for high-power electronics continues to increase for electric vehicles, energy, and industrial applications, CVD Equipment has engineered PVT systems to support the production of high-quality SiC boules for high-yield SiC wafers. Presently offering 150mm crystal growth systems, the firm says that it is committed to supporting the critical high-volume production needs for the industry and further supporting the evolution to systems of 200mm and above.
“CVD Equipment Corporation is ramping up our commercialization of the PVT systems to meet the growing needs of the high-power electronics industry,” says president & CEO Emmanuel Lakios. “Our 40 year legacy of developing process equipment and our vertical integration has positioned us as a leading manufacturer of high-quality SiC PVT systems. Our sights are set to facilitate the industry’s growth and electrification of the future.”
