The Soitec-Leti Substrate Innovation Center will open a SiC (silicon carbide) pilot line in 2020 as part of a joint development program recently announced by Soitec and Applied Materials. The partners will develop solutions for electric vehicles, telecommunications, and other markets. SiC is already a leading material for these applications. However, it is less common for industrial applications due to its high cost and low fabrication yields.

Soitec will leverage its Smart CutTM technology, which the company uses for its SOI products.
Applied Materials will contribute materials engineering know-how. Audi, which has made EVs one of its top priorities, will be just one of the companies keeping a close eye on the new pilot line.
