SiC Materials

Materials Products

Wolfspeed is transitioning to a new wafer scribe format based upon SEMI specification M12-0706. This conversion is projected to be fully integrated across all products by the end of 2023, and brings several improvements. The M12-based scribe will be positioned upright when the major flat or notch is oriented up, making the scribe easier to read when the wafers are loaded into cassettes. The new format includes a wafer supplier identification code, validating the wafer’s authenticity. It also includes a checksum, which is an error-detection method that prevents OCR mis-read errors and reduces the instance of processing errors associated with such event.

Dimensional Properties, Terminology, & Methods

The linear dimension across the surface of the wafer. Measurement is performed using an automated micrometer, traceable to the ANSI standard, providing the average value for each individual wafer.
Thickness, Center Point
Measured with ANSI-certified non-contact tools at the center of each individual wafer.
Surface Orientation
Denotes the orientation of the surface of a wafer with respect to a crystallographic plane within the lattice structure. In wafers cut intentionally “off orientation,” the direction of cut is parallel to the primary flat, away from the secondary flat. Measured with x-ray goniometer on a sample of one wafer per boule in the center of the wafer.
Orthogonal Misorientation
In wafers intentionally cut “off orientation,” the angle between the projection of the surface normal onto a (0001) plane and the nearest [1120] direction.

Silicon Carbide as a Semiconductor

As we continue with the BaSiCs of SiC blog series, we’re going to take a look at SiC as a semiconductor material and what properties make it special.

Silicon Carbide’s Unique Properties and Applications

Although it might seem like a recent innovation, silicon carbide (SiC) has actually been in use since the late 1800s, beginning as an abrasive material and later finding applications in a wide variety of industries (including semiconductors). The wide-ranging use of SiC is a natural consequence of the material’s extraordinary physical traits.
