A sustainable and competitive European power semiconductor industry is essential to support the megatrend developments formulated in the Europe 2020 strategy - climate change, energy security, food security, and health & aging population. It is therefore of paramount importance to defend and further extend Europe’s leading position in both power semiconductor manufacturing science(s) and the corresponding application domains. Maintaining these core competencies clearly requires a major, comprehensive and carefully coordinated pan-European innovation effort.

EPPL will combine Research, Development and Innovation (R&D&I) to demonstrate market readiness by industrial implementation at an early stage. Second generation power semiconductor devices fabricated in European leading 300mm pilot lines are at the heart of the project, for which manufacturing excellence, cost competitiveness and challenging applications are critical boundary conditions. With this, to leverage the technical characteristics of power devices and foster the trend towards system-in-package integration, advances in packaging technologies become of utmost importance. These aspects will be fully supported by this projects right from the beginning as well.
