Wolfspeed to show GaN Foundry Services at CSICS 2017


RF foundry and components business continues to innovate to meet demands of upcoming 5G systems

Wolfspeed will be highlighting its GaN-on-SiC commercial foundry services at the 2017 IEEE Compound Semiconductor IC Symposium (CSICS) later this month.

This international forum for advancing the technologies involved in compound semiconductor integrated circuits (encompassing GaAs, InP, GaN, SiGe, and nanoscale CMOS technology) is in October 22 "“ 25, 2017 in Miami, Florida.

Wolfspeed engineers will be showcasing the company's commercial open GaN-on-SiC foundry services, as well as demonstrating best-in-class GaN-on-SiC power devices for a range of RF power amplifier applications for military communications systems, radar equipment, electronic warfare and electronic counter-measure systems, as well as commercial RF applications in the industrial, medical, and scientific (ISM) band.

Wolfspeed's GaN RF technology has a FIT rate of <10 after billions of device hours of field operation.

"As GaN-on-SiC RF technology has entered the mainstream in commercial wireless infrastructure, our industry-leading open RF foundry and components business continues to innovate to meet the changing cost, efficiency, and performance demands needed for upcoming 5G systems," said Jim Milligan, VP, RF and Microwave Products.

Wolfspeed's RF business development manager Simon Wood is the exhibition chair of the CSICS conference, and Wolfspeed personnel will present one of the CSICS 2017 conference technical sessions:

On Wednesday, October 25, Wolfspeed RF applications engineer Kasyap Patel will deliver a presentation entitled 'Current Contours-Based Input Matching Network (IMN) Design Methodology for Broadband GaN Doherty Power Amplifiers'. Co-presenters for this session are H. Golestaneh, RF/mmWave Design Engineer of Peraso Technologies and S. Boumaiza, professor, ECE at University of Waterloo, Canada.
