Developing Energy Efficient Electronics with Wide Bandgap Semiconductors
PowerAmerica and Lockheed Martin are partnering to develop a new generation of power-efficient microelectronic devices that will reduce energy loss across the power grid. The partners are turning their attention to wide bandgap semiconductors for their research.
Led by NC State University, PowerAmerica is one of five institutes established to date under the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI) aimed at revolutionizing American manufacturing. As one of the institute’s sustaining members, Lockheed Martin will partner on projects to accelerate the commercialization of wide bandgap power electronics technologies, which allow for electronic components to be smaller, faster and more efficient than their current silicon-based counterparts.
