SUNY Poly's partnership highlighted in Rome Sentinel: 'MV EDGE receives Project of the Year award for Cree/Wolfspeed chip fab facility'
"The Marcy Nanocenter at SUNY Polytechnic Institute is a 434-acre greenfield campus developed for semiconductor and advanced technology manufacturing facilities. It is now home to Cree/Wolfspeed, which announced in 2019 that it would build a $1 billion, state-of-the-art, automotive-qualified 200mm-capable power wafer fabrication facility at the site.
"The facility will be the largest such silicon carbide facility in the world and will be critical to supplying the next wave of electric vehicles (EV), 4G/5G mobile and industrial markets as Cree/Wolfspeed drives the industry transition from silicon-to-silicon carbide, according to industry experts. Construction is on schedule for production to begin in early 2022."
