Aixtron Receives Repeat Order From Sumitomo
Japanese group to boost production of GaN-on-SiC devices to meet demand for RF data transfer applications
Deposition equipment company Aixtron has delivered a CRIUS MOCVD system with 4-inch wafer configuration to Japanese group Sumitomo Electric Device Innovations (SEDI).
SEDI wants to boost the production of GaN-on-SiC devices for RF data transfer applications including for the upcoming 5G wireless mobile network. The system has been put into operation in the fourth quarter 2016.
SEDI has longstanding experience with Aixtron's Close Coupled Showerhead technology which enables easy scalability.The new reactor is equipped with optional features such as dynamic gap adjustment, ARGUS in-situ temperature control and the EpiCurve TT metrology system. The ARGUS monitoring device provides full wafer mapping in real time for optimum control of the growth process. Extended flexibility is enabled by allowing the adjustment of the process gap between the showerhead and the substrate.
SEDI already has a range of GaN HEMT devices on offer for radar, mobile phone base-stations, and general applications. These GaN-on-SiC HEMT devices enable high power amplification at operating frequencies of up to 14 GHz RF.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
