IntelliEPI Buys GaAs Epitaxy Business From Soitec

Soitec (Euronext), a manufacturer of semiconductor materials for the electronics and energy industries, has today announced the sale of its GaAs epitaxy business (part of the Soitec Specialty Electronics subsidiary based in France) to US-based Intelligent Epitaxy Technology Inc.

"The transaction will enable IntelliEPI to widen its customer base and penetrate to several critical GaAs application markets such as automotive radar technology. It will also enable IntelliEPI to provide best-valued products and services to all its customers with expanded manufacturing capacities from its Texas, USA location" said Yung-Chung Kao, IntelliEPI President and CEO.

"The sale of our GaAs epitaxy business to IntelliEPI reflects our drive to refocus Soitec's electronics division on its key products under its five-year Soitec 2015 program," explained Bernard Aspar, senior vice president and Soitec's Communication & Power business unit general manager.

IntelliEPI was established in 1999 in Richardson, Texas, to supply epitaxy-based compound semiconductor epi wafers to the electronics and optoelectronics industries. Along with IntelliEPI's experience in MBE processing, the company owns three US patents on real-time in situ growth sensor technology

Soitec's products include substrates for microelectronics (most notably SOI: silicon-on-insulator) and concentrator photovoltaic systems. The company's core technologies are Smart Cut, Smart Stacking and Concentrix, as well as expertise in epitaxy. Applications include consumer and mobile electronics, microelectronics-driven IT, telecommunications, automotive



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.
