According to reports, STMicroelectronics recently announced the opening of its new silicon carbide power device packaging production line for electric vehicles. The new production line is located in Bosquekura, Casablanca-Setat, Morocco.

The report pointed out that the expansion cost $244 million and expanded the factory's existing production area by 7,500 square meters, making it ST's second-largest factory.

From powder for making ingots, to SiC wafers and fabs in Catania, to chips packaged in Morocco, the new facility will be a key part of ST's strategy to supply SiC power device to Europe.
