Cree Licenses GaN Device Patents To Transphorm

Cree, today announced that it signed a non-exclusive worldwide patent license agreement with Transphorm, that provides access to Cree's extensive family of patents related to GaN high electron mobility transistor and GaN Schottky diode devices for use in the field of power conversion devices. The licensed family of patents addresses various aspects of making GaN power devices, including nitride materials, HEMT and Schottky diode designs and processing technology. While GaN HEMTs are already used extensively in RF markets by Cree and others, their use in power conversion markets has been targeted by Transphorm and a number of other companies.
"Over the last 17 years, Cree has invented technology that enabled the successful introduction of reliable GaN HEMT devices in the RF market," stated John Palmour, Cree CTO, Power & RF and one of Cree's co-founders. "Many of these inventions can and are expected to be used by others to manufacture devices in the burgeoning area of GaN power-management systems."

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.
