Sterling Semiconductor Inc., a subsidiary of Uniroyal Technology Corp. (Sarasota, FL), announced that it has been awarded a research and development contract from the US Army related to advanced silicon-carbide semiconductor devices. The contract is for approximately $746,000.

The contract is aimed at developing a unique way of applying epitaxial thin films to silicon-carbide substrates produced by Sterling. These films are the building blocks of a wide variety of semiconductor devices, and further development of their specifications is important to applying silicon-carbide semiconductor technology to military and commercial electronic applications.

"The fact that the Army is relying on Sterling to fulfill this contract requirement is another indication of the quality of Sterling's technology and ability to provide results for both military and commercial customers," said Robert L. Soran, president and COO of Uniroyal Technology.
