Boosting Europe’s power semiconductor industry
The EPPL project strengthens Europe’s leading position in power semiconductors by
providing a new generation of power semiconductors based on 300mm technology
setting up a 300mm power pilot line, and
demonstrating highly energy efficient solutions for applications like automotive, renewable energy, automotive LED and healthcare
Power semiconductors based on 300mm wafers open a new dimension in cost-competitive and energy efficient solutions. Manufacturing power semiconductors industrially requires capabilities that pose yet unresolved challenges. EPPL enhances technology research and semiconductor manufacturing and researches chip/package interconnect technologies aiming at practical use in modern, energy efficient applications. The results are targeting a multitude of product innovations of direct impact onto our everyday life.
The EPPL project is aiming for energy efficient innovations.
