Jan. 24, 2023 /SemiMedia/ -- According to reports, Wolfspeed plans to cooperate with German auto parts supplier ZF to spend $2 billion to build a silicon carbide (SiC) semiconductor factory in Saarland, Germany.

The report pointed out that the factory is expected to be put into operation within 4 years and is expected to become the world's largest silicon carbide (SiC) semiconductor factory, and ZF will hold a minority stake.

Wolfspeed's newest U.S. factory cost about $2 billion, while the Saarland factory will be much larger and therefore more expensive.
