SFCE Secures Majority Share In Lattice Power

Clean energy company to acquire 51 percent stake in GaN-on-silicon innovator

Shunfeng International Clean Energy Limited (SFCE), formerly Shunfeng Photovoltaic International, has signed a memorandum of understanding to acquire a 51 percent stake in Lattice Power.

Lattice Power, which makes a wide range of general lighting, display screen, LCD backlight and industrial LED chip products, is known for its GaN on silicon substrate and wafer processing technology. In 2014 Lattice Power sold over 100 million units of LED bulbs.

SFCE is committed to becoming the largest low-carbon, integrated, clean energy generation provider globally. Through strategic acquisitions and integrations, SFCE owns a number of well-known product and technology brands in the industry.

"Developing cost-effective lighting solutions is an essential step in solving the world's energy challenges," said Zhang Yi, executive chairman of SFCE. "Lattice Power's breakthrough technology represents the next generation of affordable lighting products.

"These new lighting products will inevitably replace traditional lighting, providing high-quality products at a reasonable cost for the global lighting markets. In addition, the merger creates new opportunities for SFCE in the lighting market, providing a new and substantial profit source for the company."

Sonny Wu, managing director of GSR Ventures and executive chairman of Lattice Power said: "We see tremendous opportunity for the GaN-on-silicon technology, which offers the ideal choice for next generation silicon chips."

He added: "GSR Ventures has been leading investments within new economic fields for many years. In collaboration with SFCE, we are excited to integrate Lattice Power's technology and products into emerging lighting markets, to disrupt the market and yield substantial earnings. We look forward to a long-term partnership."

GSR Ventures is a venture capital fund that invests primarily in early- and growth-stage technology companies with substantial operations in China. 



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.
