In this paper, we present results of epitaxial layer deposition for production needs using our hot-wall CVD multi-wafer system VP2000HW from Epigress with a capability of processing 7×3” or 6×100mm wafers per run in a new 100mm setup. Intra-wafer and wafer-to-wafer homogeneities of doping and thickness for full-loaded 6×100mm and 7×3” runs will be shown. Results on Schottky Barrier Diodes (SBD) processed in the multi-wafer system will be given. Furthermore, we show results for n- and p-type SiC homoepitaxial growth on 3”, 4° off-oriented substrates using a single-wafer hot-wall reactor VP508GFR from Epigress for the development of PiN-diodes with blocking voltages above 6.5 kV. Characteristics of n- and p-type epilayers and doping memory effects are discussed. 6.5 kV PiN-diodes were fabricated and electrically characterized. Results on reverse blocking behaviour, forward characteristics and drift stability will be presented.
