Silicon Genesis Corp. (SiGen) has signed a collaboration and equipment supply agreement with Renewable Energy Corp. (REC), whereby REC will evaluate thin-PV substrate samples made using SiGen's PolyMax kerf-free wafering process.

REC will also collaborate with SiGen to develop and optimize high-volume manufacturing equipment and develop silicon ingot shaping requirements. The agreement also includes commercial terms under which SiGen will supply an allocation of its production equipment to REC.

SiGen has successfully completed an initial phase under the agreement by delivering to REC 125 mm wafer samples of 50-micrometer thickness with excellent yield, mechanical and electrical characteristics, the company says.
