We're Building the World's Largest Silicon Carbide Device Manufacturing Facility

At Cree | Wolfspeed, we are driving the industry transition from silicon to silicon carbide. To meet the increasing demand for our groundbreaking Wolfspeed technology that supports the growing electric vehicle (EV), 4G/5G mobile and industrial markets, we announced last fall that the company is establishing a silicon carbide corridor on the East Coast of the United States.

We are currently constructing the world’s largest silicon carbide fabrication in Marcy, New York. This brand new, state-of-the-art power and RF wafer fabrication facility will be automotive-qualified and 200mm-capable. It is complemented by our mega materials factory expansion currently underway at our Durham, North Carolina headquarters. The new fabrication facility will dramatically increase capacity for our Wolfspeed silicon carbide and GaN business and will be a bigger, highly-automated factory with greater output capability.
