SkyWater Technology selected Steifpower Technology as its manufacturing partner for discrete power devices. Specifically, the companies will collaborate to design and manufacture power MOSFETs (metal oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors), IGBTs (insulated-gate bipolar transistors), and related power discrete devices, targeting Tier 1 automotive customers.
Steifpower is using SkyWater’s Integrated process Flow Transfer (SWIFT) services, and the initial engagement is focused on transferring a high performance power MOSFET with excellent low Ciss (input capacitance) characteristics for better switching frequency as well as a low RDS(on) (device operating resistance) in applications up to 200V. SkyWater will process Steifpower’s advanced IGBTs for applications up to 1700V.
