IEE SAS launches cooperation with Taiwanese ITRI
During the visit of the Slovak-Taiwanese Commission for Economic Cooperation, representatives of the Institute of Electrical Engineering Slovak Academy of Sciences (ElÚ SAV) signed a license agreement and a memorandum of understanding with the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), Taiwan.
Under the license agreement, the IEE SAS will build-up a laboratory for reliability analysis of semiconductor power modules, which will be manufactured in the cleanroom of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (FEI STU). The Memorandum of Understanding, in turn, defines joint research between ElÚ SAV and ITRI focused on the development of power electronic devices based on wide-bandgap semiconductors (GaN and Ga2O3). The long-term goal of the joint projects between ElÚ SAV, FEI STU and ITRI is not only in the research itself, but also the education of new experts in the field of wide bandgap semiconductor technology (GaN, Ga2O3, SiC) and the development and assembly of power modules for electromobility.
