"EpiGaN has a strong technical foundation and leading-edge products," says Marianne Germain, Co-founder and CEO of EpiGaN. "Mr. Geisler will play a key role in setting the strategic direction of the company. We're very pleased to have an industry executive with his experience lead our board."

"This is a great opportunity to be part of the Board of Directors of EpiGaN, a company focused on winning in the power and RF markets through innovation," Claus Geisler says. "I look forward working with the management team to drive EpiGaN‘s expansion and to grow the business globally. I am convinced that EpiGaN will play an important role in the industrialisation of GaN technology in the near future."

Geisler has more than forty years of experience in the semiconductor industry. After several management positions in the semiconductor industry, he worked the last eighteen years at Siemens/Infineon in Munich. At Siemens/Infineon, most of his time was dedicated to the power semiconductor business.

Geisler retired as a Sr. Vice President at Infineon and as a board member of the automotive division.

He holds a degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Applied Sciences in Bielefeld.

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.
