Disruptive Compound Semiconductor Technologies
Thursday, July 10, 2014
The unique properties of wide bandgap and compound semiconductor materials make them a promising solution for a variety of applications, from power electronics to mobile front ends, RF devices, photonic LED,  and laser components. The road ahead, however, presents plenty of issues for cost effective volume manufacturing of these devices, from lower cost substrates to high temperature packaging.  Will SiC, GaN or GaN on silicon manage the power for the next generation electric grid and hybrid/electric vehicles? Will GaAs or CMOS dominate mobile front ends?  Invited industry thought leaders will discuss the manufacturing technology challenges and opportunities in moving these high performance materials beyond limited niches to real volume markets in a silicon world.
