GaAs Foundry Win Semiconductors Posts Highest Revenues
Revenue up 23.45 percent from a year earlier
Win Semiconductors Corp, the world's largest pure-play GaAs foundry, has reported the highest revenue in the past 12 months for last month. This was due to high demand from handset vendors ahead of new product launches this quarter and next quarter, according a news report in the Taipei Times.
Revenue for the Taiwanese company was $34.5 million last month on a consolidated basis, up 7.41 percent from the previous month, and also up 23.45 percent from a year earlier.
Last month, PA chips accounted for more than 50 percent of Win Semiconductors' total sales, with others including Wi-Fi-linked components and infrastructure-related applications, such as those for base stations, optical fibre networks, satellite communications and national defense businesses.
Win Semiconductors provides foundry services for GaAs components used in mobile handsets, including smartphones. Its major clients - Singapore's Avago Technologies Ltd, Japan's Murata Manufacturing Co, China's RDA Microelectronics Inc and US-based Skyworks Solutions Inc - produce GaAs-based electronic devices used by Apple Inc, Samsung Electronics Co and Nokia Oyj in their products.
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.
