  • They opted to use a wafer that is also made of gallium nitride—an approach called GaN on GaN, based on the abbreviation for the material.

    The Quest for Cheaper, Better Lights

  • Crystals of GaN must be grown at 1000°C, so by the time a new LED made on silicon has cooled, it has already cracked, rendering the devices unusable.

  • One solution is to grow the LEDs on sapphire, which shrinks and cools at much the same rate as GaN.

  • But with GaN HEMT, the size can be easily contracted by 90 percent, which is small enough to be a built-in part, according to Fujitsu.

    Fujitsu to develop built-in AC adapter

  • The Tokyo-based Fujitsu Laboratories, a subsidiary of technology solution provider Fujitsu Corp, said it's developing the world's first gallium-nitride high electron mobility transistor (GaN HEMT), which aims to reduce the power consumption, as well as the size of power supplies.

  • With the industry's broadest technology portfolio, recognized R&D leadership, and expertise in high-volume manufacturing, TriQuint creates standard and custom products using gallium arsenide (GaAs), gallium nitride (GaN), surface acoustic wave (SAW) and bulk acoustic wave (BAW) technologies.

  • RFMD's Compound Semiconductor Group will create innovative new high-power and high-performance products utilizing the Company's industry-leading gallium nitride (GaN) and gallium arsenide (GaAs) process technologies.

  • Raytheon is also a leading provider of high-performance GaN technology.

  • "We are seeing our Gallium Nitride GaN modules exceed the program's performance requirements, which ensures that the Navy will get the capability and reliability they need for this sophisticated radar system at an affordable cost."
