Infineon Technologies has completed the first phase of its 200mm Silicon Carbide (SiC) power fab in Kulim, Malaysia.

Infineon plans to officially open the Kulim 3 fab module in August, with SiC production starting by the end of 2024. The fab is at the heart of a $100bn plan by the Malaysian government to boost chip production in the country. 

The production tools for the SiC lines are being installed, and the fab gas been designed adaptable to the needs of newer tool types, volumes and structural requirements.
