GE partners include industry leading companies that will support GE internal production needs as well as other production needs in the electronics market.

  • POL technology uses a thin dielectric film onto which active and/or passive components are attached. Electrical connections to the components are done using a microvia technology.

  • POL technology is a platform of processes aimed to support applications from high density consumer electronics to high power industrial applications.

  • GE is adopting commercial production of SiC power conversion modules that are based on the POL technology. The POL technology enables significant improvement in device power density and parasitic losses.
