Wide Bandgap (WBG) semiconductors play a strategic role in driving innovation and creating energy efficient and high-performance electronics. Demand for these semiconductors is fueled by sustainability, industry advancements, and advanced connectivity.
However, meeting this demand requires addressing challenges like cost, technology reliability, and geo-politic chaos among others. While the global WBG semiconductor industry is poised for unprecedented growth in the next 10 years, it would be critical to prioritize the opportunities, and effectively tackle the challenges to meet the short-term and long-term demands.
Join Frost & Sullivan for an engaging and thought-provoking Think Tank on “WBG Semiconductors: Overcoming Challenges, Unlocking Potential” on July 28, at 10:00 AM, EDT. The distinguished panel of semiconductor professionals will share their expertise and experiences and will address pressing questions like:
- How can WBG semiconductors play a central role in driving sustainability goals?
- How can WBG semiconductors contribute to improving efficiency in renewable energy systems and energy infrastructure?
- What role would regulations and standards play in driving the adoption of WBG semiconductors?
- Electric vehicles (EVs) have long been strong advocates for WBG semiconductors – What are the current opportunities beyond EV that demand immediate action?
Mark your calendars to engage in discussion with:
- Prabhu Karunakaran, Industry Principal at Frost & Sullivan
- Jonathan Robinson, VP Research, Power and Energy at Frost & Sullivan
- Stephen Oliver, Marketing & Investor Relations at Navitas Semiconductor
- Alexey Cherkasov, Marketing & Sales Director at Leapers Semiconductor

The European Commission has approved the “Important Project of Common European Interest on Microelectronics and Communication Technologies” (IPCEI-ME/CT) with the aim of initiating complex and investment-intensive projects that could not otherwise be realized. This involves 68 projects from 14 member states – and two of those comes from Semikron Danfoss.
Semikron Danfoss is planning the further development of diodes based on thin-wafer technology and the development of a new edge structure – as well as the establishment of automotive module production based on Direct Press Die technology in Nuremberg, a continuation of the activities from the IPCEI on Microelectronics project. And in Slovakia, development activities and an expansion of production for industrial modules are planned.
Projects funded under the IPCEI -ME/CT will enable the development of new technologies and products that will make a decisive contribution to the further reduction of CO2 emissions and will secure growth and jobs in Europe. The Semikron Danfoss projects address the objectives of the European Union to strengthen competitiveness and security of supply in key technologies for both the digital and the green transformation process.
Power semiconductors are an important multiplier along the value chain of many products. The projects also aim to expand European cooperation with universities and research institutes as well as suppliers. The member states are now starting the implementation process and will determine the requirements of the projects based on the EU decision. Thanks to the prior approval of the early start of the initiatives, the projects have already been launched. The official funding commitment from the federal government and the state of Bavaria is expected shortly for Germany.
