U.S. Department of Energy Announces $2.25 Million American-Made Silicon Carbide (SiC) Packaging Prize

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Electricity (OE) today launched the American-Made Silicon Carbide (SiC)  Packaging Prize. This $2.25 million contest invites competitors to propose, design, build, and test state-of-the-art SiC semiconductor packaging prototypes to enable these devices to work more effectively in high-voltage environments such as energy storage. The prize is part of the American-Made Challenges program, which fosters collaboration between our nation’s entrepreneurs and innovators, DOE’s National Labs, and the private sector.
