EpiWorks And II-VI Complete Merger
EpiWorks will operate as a business unit within II-VI and expand its US production capacity
Compound semiconductor wafer company EpiWorks has successfully completed its merger agreement with II-VI Incorporated. EpiWorks will operate as a business unit within II-VI and will be expanding its production capacity in Illinois, US. EpiWorks will also continue to operate as an open MOCVD foundry.
"Long-term demand is strong for differentiated semiconductor technology that can be rapidly scaled to high-volume, and EpiWorks now has access to substantial expansion capital, a global footprint and sales support around the world," said David Ahmari, who remains responsible for EpiWorks' sales, marketing and technology.
"Teaming with II-VI allows us to go beyond the typical epiwafer foundry model by offering not just our leading wafer technology and II-VI's substantial scale, but a level of sophistication, flexibility and capability needed in our rapidly evolving industry."
"The combination of II-VI and EpiWorks creates a world class engineered semiconductor materials company that can uniquely innovate and scale next generation technology and production methods. We have an aggressive multi-year plan for additional capacity, new capabilities, and novel products that cover a wide range of industries and markets", said Quesnell Hartmann, who will continue as the general manager of II-VI EpiWorks.

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.
