Novasic (France)

Novasic (Framce)
Company Name NovaSiC
Founded 1995
Head Office Grenoble, France
Company Profile

Europe’s number one service provider for polishing advanced materials such as SiC, GaN etc.
After its establishment in 1995, NovaSiC has been consistently taking the lead in polishing development for European advanced materials research projects.
NovaSiC also does polishing services for wafer manufacturers, and is one of the world’s leading polishing and processing manufacturers in terms of processing results and total polishing amount.

Also, through joint epi technology research with French research institution CREHEA-CNRS, they are one of the few manufacturers that can offer not only 4H but also 3C epi.
As CMP evaluation is often difficult unless an epi layer has been deposited, one strength of NovaSiC is that they can evaluate their CMP results internally directly after the polishing process.
