The compound semiconductor industry continues to strengthen its output and diversify offering.
They include: the LED, which backlights countless screens and has driven the revolution in solid-state lighting; the GaAs power amplifier, which enables high-speed connectivity while maximising the battery life of portable devices; and the InP laser, lying at the heart of fibre-based optical communication networks.
In the years that come, similar revenues will be recorded by many other compound semiconductor devices.
SiC and GaN transistors and diodes are transforming the power electronics industry, by setting a new benchmark for efficiency. III-Vs, via heterogeneous integration, could usher in a new class of microprocessor; and miniaturised LEDs will simplify displays by delivering direct illumination.Supporting high-volume manufacture of today’s compound semiconductor chips – and the development of these devices within multi-nationals, start-ups and universities – are suppliers of the gases, materials, tools and design software needed to make and characterise these chips.
Within the compound semiconductor community, a global, trusted platform is essential to support and foster communication between the producers of these chips and those that make the materials and tools to support them.
Fulfilling this role is Compound Semiconductor. Within its print and digital versions of the magazine, its website, and at its conference, CS International, there tailored, targeted advertising options for every firm that supports the development and production of compound semiconductor chips.
