X-FAB doubles 6-Inch SiC foundry capacity
Analog/mixed-signal and specialty foundry group X-FAB Silicon Foundries announced its plans to double its 6-inch Silicon Carbide (SiC) process capacity at its fab in Lubbock, Texas in response to increased customer demand for high efficiency power semiconductor devices.

“With the rising popularity of SiC we understood, early on, that increasing our ion implant capability would be critical to our continued manufacturing success in the SiC marketplace. This is just the first step in our overall capital plan for SiC-specific manufacturing process improvements. This step also enables X-FAB to demonstrate our commitment to the SiC industry and maintains our leadership position in the SiC foundry business”, said Lloyd Whetzel, CEO of X-FAB Texas in a company statement.

X-FAB's 6-inch SiC process capabilities are available at its Lubbock, Texas manufacturing site which is certified for automotive manufacturing according to the new IATF-16949:2016 International Automotive Quality Management System (QMS).
