Steifpower and SkyWater to Create High-Efficiency Discrete Power Devices for Advanced Automotive Applications

October 14, 2019 Alix Paultre

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.
