National Research Council Of Canada Announces GaN Design Kit

Software gives access to NRC's GaN electronics fabrication service

 

The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) is now offering the second version of its gallium nitride GaN500v2 Design Kit software. Combined with Canada's only foundry for GaN electronics, the kit will enable industry and academics to create revolutionary technologies and device designs, according to the NRC.

The NRC provides complete fabrication processing from 3in GaN on SiC wafers through to characterisation and wafer dicing. Devices are fabricated with 0.5 micron gate length. Partners can choose full wafer runs (one customer's designs only) or shared wafer runs, which consolidate demand on three or more fabrication runs per year. The latter service is offered in partnership with CMC Microsystems.

The GaN500v2 Design Kit includes both a design manual and a physical design kit, based on Agilent's ADS CAD  tool. The design manual includes the process description and design rules for all supported devices for the GaN technology and the related foundry services available through the Canadian Photonics Fabrication Centre of the NRC of Canada. The technology is appropriate for, but not limited to, RF and microwave devices.

The minimum ADS CAD bundle required for running the kit includes the ADS core and layout module. The design kit is compatible with ADS 2014 and earlier.




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.
