Recently, Yangjie Technology announced that the company has signed a “Framework Contract for the Entry of 6-inch Silicon Carbide Wafer Project” with the Hanjiang District Government of Yangzhou City. The company plans to invest in the construction of a new 6-inch silicon carbide wafer production line project under the jurisdiction of the Hanjiang District Government, with a total investment of about 1 billion yuan. The construction will be carried out in two phases. After all projects are completed and put into operation, the production capacity of 6-inch silicon carbide wafers will be 5000 pieces per month.
As the core of the third generation semiconductor materials, compared with traditional silicon semiconductors, silicon carbide has outstanding advantages such as wide band gap, high saturation drift velocity, high critical breakdown electric field, etc. It can work at higher temperature, higher voltage, higher frequency and higher radiation environment, and has higher durability and reliability. It has the potential to replace silicon based devices in many applications such as automobile, industry, IT and consumer electronics, The future prospects are broad. In recent years, in the global context of “carbon peak, carbon neutrality”, new energy vehicles, photovoltaic and other cities have a high atmosphere, and the market demand for silicon carbide products has become increasingly strong, driving the accelerated introduction and development of silicon carbide devices, further opening the market space for silicon carbide.
It is reported that Yangjie Technology has laid out the third-generation semiconductor industry earlier, and has been involved in the research and development and design of silicon carbide products for many years. It has formed multiple patents and other intellectual property rights, and has successfully developed and launched SiC modules and a full series of 650V SiC SBD and 1200V series SiC SBD products to the market. SiC Mosfet has made critical progress, and plans to further lay out the construction of 6-8-inch silicon carbide chip production lines in the future. If this cooperation framework contract can be implemented and implemented, it will be conducive to fully leveraging the company’s core advantages such as technological research and development, operational management, and customer resources, as well as the advantages of Yangzhou’s industrial support policies and location conditions. It will help the company seize good opportunities for the development of the silicon carbide market, accelerate the improvement of the company’s silicon carbide product technology level and achieve product upgrading, and help to build the company into a listed company with industry influence in the silicon carbide field, Promote the company’s active transformation and upgrading towards high-end manufacturing, and contribute to the localization of power devices.
Yangjie Technology also stated that the signing of this framework contract is not expected to have a significant impact on the company’s operating performance in 2023, and the impact on the company’s future annual operating performance will depend on the specific progress and implementation of cooperation between the two parties.
