Kyma boosts capacity for making AlN templates
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.
