Key Questions To Be Answered At CS International Conference

Frankfurt, Germany on 18th & 19th March 2014

The compound semiconductor industry continues to evolve, developing and manufacturing new devices that will help to shape the world of tomorrow.

This industry is currently debating answers to a handful of key questions:

Will silicon CMOS overtake GaAs as the primary technology in the front-end handset market?

How long will it take for GaN and SiC make a substantial impact in the RF and power electronics arenas? 

How quickly can LED chipmakers trim the cost-per-lumen and unlock a revolution in solid-state lighting?

Does the future for triple-junction solar cells lie in space or on the ground? What devices can ‘green’ optical networks?

Are III-Vs the logical choice for next-generation microprocessors?

The answer to these questions and many more will be answered by the leading industry insiders who are thinking about these important issues, at the 4th CS International Conference in Germany. 

During the two days, delegates will have the unique opportunity to listen to six key themes and 36 inspiring presentations include leading market analysts in the compound semiconductor sector, plus representatives of many of the biggest III-V foundries in the world. 

CS International conference has secured seven keynote talks which will be  given by representatives from Ford, Samsung, IBM, International Rectifier, Nujira, One Chip Photonics and the European Space Agency.

Delegates will hear about the breakthroughs in device technology; insights into the current status and the evolution of compound semiconductor devices; and details of advances in tools and processes which could help boost fab yields and throughputs.

A Networking Conference Dinner will be held on the evening of the 18th March where the compound semiconductor industry will recognise the 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 through The CS Industry Awards 2014.

Further information on the conference and the awards is available on the CS International website at:

Registration is now open.

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.
