According to reports, Hua Hong Semiconductor and Star Semiconductor have been cooperating for many years. The two parties have devoted themselves to the development and production of IGBTs in various fields such as automotive electronics, inverters, Inverter welding machines, UPS, photovoltaic/wind power generation, and white goods. At present, series products of 650V, 750V, 950V, 1200V, 1700V and other voltages have achieved mass production, and the cumulative shipment of IGBTs between the two parties has exceeded 250,000 equivalent 8-inch wafers.

In 2020, Hua Hong Semiconductor introduced the 8-inch IGBT technology into the 12-inch production line, and successfully established the IGBT wafer production process on the 12-inch production line after less than one year of research and development. A pure-play foundry that mass-produces advanced trench gate field stop (FS, Field Stop) IGBTs with 12-inch production lines.

It is reported that Hua Hong Semiconductor’s four “8-inch + 12-inch” factories have passed the IATF 16949 automotive quality management system certification. At present, Hua Hong Semiconductor has produced more than 10,000 wafers of 12-inch IGBTs, and all electrical parameters have maintained excellent levels.

Star Semiconductor has been committed to IGBT chip design and IGBT module design, manufacturing and testing. Hua Hong Semiconductor pointed out that Star Semiconductor is the only IGBT module supplier in China that has entered the top 10 in the world. In 2020, the automotive-grade IGBT modules produced using its own chips will be used in more than 200,000 vehicles in the global market.

According to Dr. Shen Hua, Chairman and General Manager of Star Semiconductor, the automotive-grade IGBT chips designed by Star Semiconductor and manufactured by Hua Hong Semiconductor have been widely used in the field of automotive electronics, providing a strong support for the rapid development of the domestic automotive market.
