SUNY Poly Spinoff NoMIS Power partnering with Hyundai Motor Company
This past spring NoMIS Power, a high-tech start-up company spun out of SUNY Polytechnic Institute’s Albany campus, working to accelerate the clean tech revolution through the application of novel semiconductor devices and power packaging materials for the global power electronics market, announced a new partnership with Hyundai Group, South Korea. Together, they will evaluate and develop novel power semiconductor device designs and packaging for high voltage power devices.
Working in collaboration with a network of partners across areas related to materials, device design, fabrication, and packaging, the NoMIS team will explore the suitability of different novel device architectures and packaging approaches for high voltage applications.
NoMIS Power CEO Dr. Adam Morgan said, “We’re very pleased to have kicked off this exciting relationship with Hyundai Motor Company, as it brings together the experience and research interests of both groups while fostering a commercialization pathway for the developed technology. The electrification of high-power applications, particularly in the transportation space, motivates us to pursue the next-generation of power semiconductor technology.”
Founded by SUNY Poly postdoc Adam Morgan, SUNY Poly Professors Dr. Woongje Sung and Dr. Shadi Shahedipour-Sandvik, as well as Ohio State University Professor Dr. Anant Agarwal, NoMIS Power Group brings together unique US-based expertise across the power semiconductor, power packaging, and power electronics fields. Notably, NoMIS Power Group’s world-leading expertise in the application of SiC has made the company a go-to resource for R&D and manufacturing leaders seeking to leverage the transformative potential of this novel material.
The project with Hyundai will evaluate Gallium Oxide (Ga2O3) Schottky Diodes, MEtal-Semiconductor Field Effect Transistors (MESFETs), and Metal–Oxide–Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistors (MOSFETs) with different gate structures and field management approaches to identify a path to next-generation performance in wide-bandgap power semiconductor devices. Ultimately, this means the next generation power semiconductor device could lead to potential applications that include improved electric vehicle motor drives and on-board/off-board chargers with enhanced power density and efficiency beyond today’s technological performances.
