ON Semiconductor expands SiC plant in Czech Republic

Onsemi recently celebrated the inauguration of its expanded silicon carbide (hereinafter referred to as "SiC") plant in Roznov, Czech Republic.

Starting in 2019, ON Semiconductor has added SiC polished wafers and SiC epitaxy (“EPI”) wafer production to its existing silicon polished and epitaxial wafer and chip production in Roznov. Since the original site could not meet the demand, a new plant was built last year to further expand the production of wafers and SiC EPI.

Over the next two years, this expansion will increase the site's SiC capacity by 16 times and create 200 jobs by the end of 2024. So far, ON Semiconductor has invested more than $150 million in the Roznov site and plans to invest an additional $300 million by 2023.
