Global supply of Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) is facing a shortage in 2010 and the year may end with an acute undersupply of the heavily in-demand devices unless production capacity is increased, iSuppli Corp. is warning.
SELEX Galileo, a Finmeccanica Company and a world leading defence electronics manufacturer, and RFMD, Inc. (Nasdaq:RFMD), a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency components and compound semiconductor technologies, today announced the extension of their collaboration to develop high frequency GaAs MMIC solutions focused on SELEX Galileo's next generation of electronically-scanned (E-SCAN) phased array radar systems. SELEX Galileo and RFMD have collaborated in GaAs MMICs since signing a strategic cooperation agreement in May 2008.
Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) announced today it has developed four models of gallium nitride high-electron mobility transistor (GaN HEMT) for 4.0 GHz band satellite applications, with output ranging from 2W to 100W.
International Rectifier, IR® (NYSE: IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today introduced the industry’s first family of commercial integrated power stage products utilizing IR’s revolutionary Gallium Nitride (GaN)-based power device technology platform. The iP2010 and iP2011 family of devices is designed for multiphase and point-of-load (POL) applications including servers, routers, switches and general purpose POL DC-DC converters.
We have investigated an edge-emitting tilted wave laser (TWL) with the active region based on GaInAs/GaAs quantum wells. In the TWL the wavelength stabilization is based on the coupling of the laser active waveguide cavity to a specially introduced thick epitaxial layer and the emission wavelength is defined by the combined cavity mode preferably by a single dominating mode.
