The Fraunhofer-Publica has been successfully documenting the research results of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft for over 30 years. The platform enables the collaborative linking of research-relevant objects and disseminates within the international scientific community.
The Fraunhofer-Publica thus fulfils its responsibility to promote the transfer of knowledge and know-how to industry and society.
As an application-oriented research organisation, Fraunhofer aims to conduct highly innovative and solution-oriented research - for the benefit of society and to strengthen the German and European economy.
Fraunhofer is tackling the current challenges facing industry head on. By pooling their expertise and involving industrial partners at an early stage, the Fraunhofer Institutes involved in the projects aim to turn original scientific ideas into marketable products as quickly as possible.
Scientific achievement and practical relevance are not opposites - at Fraunhofer they are mutually dependent. Thanks to the close organisational links between Fraunhofer Institutes and universities, science at Fraunhofer is conducted at an internationally first-class level.
The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is the leading organisation for applied research in Europe. Institutes and research facilities work under its umbrella at various locations throughout Germany.
PublicationProven Power Cycling Reliability of SmartSiC™ Substrate for Power Devices( 2022)The Smart Cut™ technology enables the integration of a high-quality SiC layer transfer for device yield optimization, combined with a low-resistivity handle wafer (below 5mOhm.cm) to lower device conduction and switching losses. More than 550000 cycles without any failure have been demonstrated during Power Cycling Tests, with a temperature swing of 120K. Evolution of thermal resistance is within the specification of AQG324 standards (2021 revision). This test is a validation of the reliability of our SmartSiC™ engineered substrate.
