Compound Semiconductor Market - Type & Technology
The compound semiconductors have a great potential to achieve high power efficiency and superior high frequency handling capacity needed for most of its applications. The various compound semiconductor materials and products manufactured by various manufacturers across the globe offer high revenue to all the stakeholders from the compound semiconductor market in many industrial verticals including consumer electronics, automotive, industrial, and power. Extensive research studies have been carried out in the past decade to utilize the compound semiconductors for semiconductor devices and electronic systems. Many development activities are taking place to gain more benefits from the compound semiconductors. Small companies in the ecosystem are doing a flourishing business to stay in the competition for along-term.
Cree Inc. (U.S.) is one of the leading providers of compound semiconductor devices that are based on the compound semiconductor materials such as Silicon Carbide (SiC), Gallium Nitride (GaN), and the other related wide-band gap materials. The products offered by Cree Inc. find a large scope in applications related to the industrial, power, solar, wind, military, aerospace, and defense sectors. They are widely used in end-user products like solar inverters, solar converters, RF devices, and military communication systems. The company has been constantly developing new products by utilizing the compound semiconductors. It recently introduced the ‘highest power continuous wave GaN high electron mobility transistor-RF transistors’ packaged in a ‘dual-flat no-leads’ format.
International Quantum Epitaxy PLC (U.K.) is the another leading manufacturer that is engaged in the designing, production, and supply of wafers to the manufacturers of wireless products, optoelectronic components, photovoltaic cells, and other power semiconductor products. It specializes in the manufacturing of gallium nitride wafers for various manufacturers and fabricators of semiconductor devices. IQE recently announced 150mm indium antimonide (InSb) substrates suitable for use in the fabrication of MWIR (Medium Wavelength Infrared) focal plane infrared detectors. The company has also signedan agreement with various other companies to develop and provide compound semiconductor based wafers with a very high performance and at a low cost.
