PacWest Acquires DayStar's CIGS Technology

Analysts say the deal to buy the copper indium gallium diselenide technology was valued at more than $55 million
PacWest Equities has acquired DayStar Technologies' line of CIGS Solar Technology.

The deal includes the ownership of DayStar's 15 Chamber CIGS production line. It produces solar covered glass panels at the rate of one 2 x 4 sheet per minute, which is of significant importance to PacWest Equities' wholly owned subsidiary, World EcoSource's MobileFood and MobileFeed Organic Food and Feed production lines.

This technology purchase also includes the DayStar library of 51 patents, patents pending, and international patents.

The technology cost over $100 million to develop, with $67 million going to Research and Development, $12 million to build the prototype line, and $27 million going to the actual production line now in physical possession of PacWest Equities, Inc.

This technology is designed to integrate with other technologies in the building market, but at the same time opening up huge surface areas for Solar Generation that previously were tinted, coated, and usually curtained to attempt to stop the transfer of heat and energy drain.

PacWest Equities, Inc. specialises in working with under performing companies and bringing together the resources needed for them to attain financial stability and growth. The firm's focus is on recession proof industries such as food and energy production showing a positive upside while struggling to bring new bio-technologies and unique products to market.



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.
