Infineon buys Siltectra to boost silicon carbide production
Infineon Technologies has bought Dresden startup Siltectra for €124m to double its yield of silicon carbide (SiC) wafers.

future, SiC will play a more and more important role in electro-mobility. The Cold Split technology will be industrialized at the existing Siltectra site in Dresden and at the Infineon site in Villach, Austria. The transfer to volume production is expected to be completed within the next five years.

Infineon is the only company worldwide with volume production of power devices on 300 mm silicon thin wafers which makes the company well placed for thin wafer producton of SiC devices. The Cold Split technology will help to secure the supply of SiC products, especially in the long run. Over time, further applications for the Cold Split technology might emerge, such as boule splitting or the use for materials other than silicon carbide.

MIG Verwaltungs  is one of the leading German Venture Capital investors and manages a portfolio of 24 companies.
