Over the past ten years, Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc., (APEI, Inc.) has been developing advanced next generation power electronics capabilities through the design and implementation of silicon carbide (SiC) based systems and platforms. In this Phase III project, APEI, Inc. proposes to build Class 1000 clean room production and manufacturing facilities to take its SiC power modules to market; APEI, Inc. would qualify and perform highly accelerated life-time testing on production level prototypes; optimize and qualify the manufacturing facility product process lines; develop product data sheets; and commercially release the SiC power module products.
