Engineering Samples Device Bank

Advanced engineering devices and modules are hard to come by and tend to require long lead times. In response to this, the PowerAmerica Institute has developed a device bank to accelerate the research, development, and commercial adoption of wide bandgap technology.

Who can access the device sample bank?

The four-tier list below defines how the Institute determines an organization’s or individual’s access to the inventory:

  • Institute members currently receiving Institute funding for technical or educational projects.
  • Institute members currently receiving other federal funding for technical or educational projects.
  • Institute members
  • Non-member organizations or individuals.

How may I use my devices?

PowerAmerica devices will be distributed under a material transfer agreement (MTA). In order for a purchase to be fulfilled, PowerAmerica will need to have a completed MTA and End Use agreement for each device a customer plans to purchase. You’ll find the MTA and End Use Agreement here.

How do I purchase devices?

If you are interested in purchasing devices from the device bank, contact Jon Zhang at qzhang9@ncsu.edu with your request.

I’ve got questions.
