Kyma Boosts Capacity For Making AlN Templates

More aggressive pricing and diameters up to 150mm and 200mm 

Kyma Technologies, a US supplier of semiconductor materials technologies, has announced its increased capacity for manufacturing AlN templates including diameters ranging from 2 inches up to 150mm and 200mm.

Tamara Stephenson, Kyma's director of sales, notes: "We have listened to our customers and have responded to their needs. We are excited to be able to offer more aggressive pricing as well as increased volume availability of all of our AlN template products, including larger diameter products including 150 mm and 200 mm."

Kyma's AlN templates are made using its patented plasma vapour deposition of nanocolumns (PVDNC) technology.

Manufacturers of blue, green, and white LEDs choose Kyma's PVDNC AlN templates as a replacement for bare and patterned sapphire substrates. According to the company, the AlN on sapphire templates provide significant improvements in LED brightness, reverse voltage, and electro-static discharge (ESD) yield.

Kyma says its AlN on silicon templates have been demonstrated to support high performance GaN transistor manufacturing for both RF and power switching applications.

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.
