Nominations Are Now Open For The Compound Semiconductor Industry Awards 2013

The 2013 CS Industry Awards will recognise success and development along the entire value chain of the Compound Semiconductor industry from research to completed device, focusing on the people, processes and products that drive the industry forward.
The Awards will remind us what is good about the industry - the people who drive it with their technical expertise and customer orientated perspectives.

From backlighting TVs to empowering mobile devices and harnessing the sun's energy, compound semiconductor chips are playing an ever-increasing role in modern life but who had the biggest breakthroughs? Which pioneering companies from around the globe created the best opportunities for the compound semiconductors industry?

The CS Industry Awards feature 6 categories covering the value chain and allows organisations involved in the industry to participate: nominate your process or product if you think that they deserve reward and recognition.

To nominate your favourite simply visit www.csawards.netand enter the details on the form.

Nominations close on 15th November 2012. 

 Categories include:

Substrates & Materials Award

Compound Semiconductor Manufacturing Award

Metrology, Test and Measurement Award

Device Design and Packaging Award

Most Innovative Device Award

R & D Award

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 Track!

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.
