PEIC welcomes Quora Technology, Inc. to its growing membership

Posted on PEIC Happenings

May 23, 2016 – Grand Ledge, Michigan. The Power Electronics Industry Collaborative (PEIC) announced that Quora Technology, Inc. has joined its growing list of members working together to accelerate innovation and advocate for investment in new power electronics technologies.

Quora Technology, Inc., located in Silicon Valley, California, is poised to become one of the premier players in rapidly growing wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductor industry. The company delivers unique and validated fab-friendly substrates (6-inch, 8-inch, 12-inch diameter and beyond) and high performance device reference designs enabling cost, performance, and application scale for its customers and partners. Furthermore, Quora Technology and its foundry partner offer WBG device foundry service, as well as access to advanced and novel process technology platforms, to deliver the full promise of WBG semiconductors for power electronics and other volume applications such as LEDs for solid state lighting and RF electronics for wireless communication.

“Quora’s disruptive substrate technology will help drive economies of scale for the production of increasingly higher quality and more robust WBG semiconductor devices, components or systems fueling profitable growth in power, LED, RF, and other emerging applications and markets that demand vastly improved performance and energy efficiency for the end customers.” stated Cem Basceri, President and CEO of Quora Technology. “We are very excited to collaborate with PEIC and its members to advance the development and commercialization of next generation power electronics by strengthening the roadmaps.”

“PEIC welcomes Quora Technology,” said Keith Evans, President of PEIC. “Scalable, low cost, high performance and reliable architectures are key for commercialization and wide spread adoption of WBG power semiconductors which have the capacity to dramatically alter energy use and consumption.  Much like Si substrates enabled conventional semiconductor industry applications (e.g. logic, memory, ASICs) as they exist today, Quora Technology possesses, not only for GaN substrate based devices but also other WBG semiconductors, a key piece to the puzzle that may similarly define the future of power electronics applications.”

PEIC is open to any industry-related organization interested in participating. Power electronics are fundamental, basic building blocks for a myriad of applications including, clean energy such as solar PV, LED lighting, and electric vehicle powertrain inverters. The broader integration of WBG semiconductors into next generation circuit level solutions is strategically important to achieve ambitious goals for reducing global energy consumption, as well as support other critical initiatives such as the development of advanced national defense systems.
