February 2013: Raytheon (RAY) has opened a new silicon carbide manufacturing foundry facility in Scotland. The company is investing in silicon carbide as a “next-generation semiconductor technology,” applicable in several industries including aerospace. “What was previously unachievable is now possible with silicon carbide,” Raytheon (RAY) UK, (CEO) Bob Delorge said, “as it allows for smaller and lighter electronics to operate in harsh environments, and addresses a real customer need for significant energy efficiency savings in the manufacture of power switching and rectifying components (AC/DC converters).”
Investment in the foundry has so far exceeded >£3.5 million/$5.5 million. “This places the company at the start of a journey to exploit new global markets for this cost-efficient material,” Delorge said.
Silicon carbide components are able to operate at higher voltages and hotter temperatures than pure silicon. It can achieve these results while being one-third the weight and volume of pure silicon parts, (RAY) said, adding it is the 1st company to have tested silicon carbide circuit devices at temperatures of up to 400 degrees Celsius.
