Soitec And IntelliEPI To Improve GaAs Services
The two companies have signed an agreement which includes a technology license granted by Soitec to IntelliEPI. The agreement may be extended to address future business opportunities in the GaAs market, including equipment transfer
Soitec, and Intelligent Epitaxy Technology, a provider of InP, GaAs, and GaSb epitaxial wafers to the electronics and optoelectronics industries, have signed a collaborative agreement to better serve the GaAs market.
This partnership aims at addressing the market requirements for a reliable second source, while also extending the leadership position of both companies in the GaAs market as well as delivering the best product at the lowest cost for the customers.
"We are delighted to announce the license of our technology leading to a second source for our products for our key GaAs customers ," says Bernard Aspar, Senior Vice President and Soitec's Communication & Power Business Unit General Manager.
"This collaborative agreement will reinforce our GaAs technology and product know-how while, at the same time, offering Soitec's customers supply-chain security," adds Yung-Chung Kao, IntelliEPI President and CEO.
GaAs is a compound of the elements gallium and arsenic. It is a III-V semiconductor, and is used in the manufacture of devices such as microwave frequency integrated circuits, monolithic microwave integrated circuits, infrared LEDs, laser diodes, solar cells and optical windows.
GaAs is often used as a substrate material for the epitaxial growth of other III-V semiconductors including InGaAs and GaInNAs.
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
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.
