DULLES, VA, December 5, 2019 — R&D Magazine has selected GeneSiC Semiconductor Inc. of Dulles, VA as a recipient of the prestigious 2019 R&D 100 Award for development of SiC-Based Monolithic Transistor-Rectifier Switch.
GeneSiC Semiconductor Inc, a key innovator in the Silicon Carbide based power devices was honored with the announcement that it has been awarded the prestigious 2019 R&D 100 Award. This award recognizes GeneSiC for introducing one of the most significant, newly introduced research and development advances among multiple disciplines during 2018. R&D Magazine recognized GeneSiC’s medium voltage SiC power device technology for its ability to monolithically integrate MOSFET and Schottky rectifier on a single chip. These capabilities achieved by GeneSiC’s device critically enable power electronics researchers to develop next-generation power electronic systems like inverters and DC-DC converters. This will allow product developments within electric vehicles, charging infrastructure, renewable energy and energy storage industries. GeneSiC has booked orders from multiple customers towards demonstration of advanced power electronics hardware using these devices and continues to develop its family of Silicon Carbide MOSFET products. The R&D on early version for power conversion applications were developed through US Dept. of Energy and collaboration with Sandia National Laboratories.
The annual technology competition run by R&D Magazine evaluated entries from various companies and industry players, research organizations and universities around the world. The magazine’s editors and a panel of outside experts served as judges, evaluating each entry in terms of its importance to the world of science and research.
According to R&D Magazine, winning an R&D 100 Award provides a mark of excellence known to industry, government, and academia as proof that the product is one of the most innovative ideas of the year. This award recognizes GeneSiC as a global leader in the creation of technology-based products that make a difference in how we work and live.
