DescriptionPhysical Analysis of the Device Step by Step Reconstruction of the Process Flow Cost of Manufacturing & Estimation of Selling Price
Yole Développement is pleased to publish a reverse engineering & costing report on the CMF20120 silicon carbide (SiC) power transistor from CREE. This 1200V MOSFET offers a very low on-resistance (80mΩ).
Based on a complete teardown process, the report provides an estimation of the production cost as well as the selling price of the CMF20120.
This reverse costing report of the first SiC MOSFET transistor contains:
• Detailed photos
• Material analysis
• SIMS analysis
• Manufacturing process flow
• In-depth economical analysis
• Manufacturing cost breakdown
• Selling price estimation
