Convergence Components Technology Center
Convergence Components Technology center has been established in 1987 with an aim to serve as a fabrication center that can handle device fabrication and packaging in one facility, making it the only facility at a government-funded research laboratory that capable of achieving this aim. The facility, with over 2000 research equipments distributed over 60 different laboratories, can provide crucial research infrastructure that can be used to facilitate the development of device components that can lead the 4th industrial revolution.
In the past, Convergence Components Technology Center has developed Si-based logic devices such as CMOS and JFET, as well as highly efficient Si-based sensors that detect photons or radiation. In recent years, we also expanded our research area to Si-based power semiconductor devices, fabricating MOSFET, IGBT, rectifier. Our research portfolio has evolved to now include high power devices for military application, SiC power devices and power conversion module research.
Our center aims to use our 30 years of experience in the field of Si semiconductor fabrication and device development to support internal research projects carried out in ETRI, as well as assist small to medium sized companies develop new technologies. We aim to use our expertise in developing Si/SiC semiconductor device, MEMS sensors, and associated physical analysis capability and packaging techniques to support industry, academia and research institutes, and ultimately strengthen the technical prowess of Korea.
