Silicon carbide (SiC) power semiconductor manufacturer UnitedSiC announced that it has reached a strategic investment and long-term supply agreement with Analog Devices (Analog Devices). The specific terms have not yet been announced.
Chris Dries, President and CEO of UnitedSiC, said: "From the first meeting we had with the ADI power team, they immediately realized the value of our SiC technology and the ease of expansion and use of SiC devices in their power platform. This It ’s a very good time for high-quality leaders like ADI to become shareholders of our company. "
For more than two years, UnitedSiC and ADI have been working together to develop SiC-based products and equipment. As wide bandgap power devices become more mainstream technologies, especially the development of SiC technology, making them more cost-effective, the introduction of these devices will further enhance ADI's analog power product portfolio.
Steve Pietkiewicz, senior vice president of power products at ADI, said: "In the past few years, we have been actively focusing on the development of silicon carbide technology and devices. We found that UnitedSiC's FET technology is very suitable for ADI's high-performance power platform and our Target applications for the voltage market. "
