PacWest To Bring DayStar's CIGS Modules To Brazil

With the amount of solar potential, combined with its high electricity rates and desire to preserve the environment, Brazil is uniquely positioned for rapid growth in the solar sector

PacWest Equities has secured an invitation from the Brazilian government to install its DayStar's CIGS module production line to Brazil.

The CIGS line of solar manufacturing equipment in Brazil was acquired in a deal some analysts value at over US $55 million.

PacWest Equities is expected to open a multi-product suite of solar products for production and distribution in Brazil and other South American countries.

DayStar Technologies, Inc. holds 51 patents, patents pending, international patents, and Intellectual Property.

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.

The aforementioned are now in possession of PacWest Equities, Inc., and will address the construction market’s need to replace typical tinted window panes in high-rise buildings with Solar Glass Panels that generate electricity at the same time as functioning as a window, a skylight, or any other type of building cover.

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.
