Sanan IC Expands Wafer Foundry Portfolio for Power Electronics with 150mm GaN-on-Silicon Process

Share

SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SANAN INTEGRATED CIRCUIT CO., LTD. (Sanan IC), a pure-play wafer foundry with its advanced compound semiconductor technology platform, today announced the commercial release of its 150mm gallium nitride (GaN) on silicon wafer foundry services intended for the latest high voltage AC/DC and DC/AC power electronics applications in the global market. Sanan IC’s new G06P111 is a 650V enhanced-mode high-electron-mobility transistor (E-HEMT) GaN process which adds to the company’s power electronics wafer foundry portfolio of wide bandgap (WBG) compound semiconductors that includes 100mm and 150mm silicon carbide (SiC) for high voltage Schottky Barrier Diodes (SBD). Leveraging years of high volume GaN manufacturing experience by Sanan Optoelectronics Inc., its parent company, for the LED market, Sanan IC is able to complement its foundry services with in-house MOCVD growth capabilities of high voltage, low leakage GaN-on-silicon epitaxial wafers with high uniformity.

“The launch of our 650V GaN E-HEMT process technology exemplifies our commitment to advanced compound semiconductor manufacturing for serving the global market”, said Jasson Chen, Assistant General Manager of Sanan IC. “We view GaN-on-silicon as a complimentary technology to silicon carbide as key wide bandgap semiconductors of choice for today’s high voltage, high power electronics industry. Component suppliers and system designers are migrating to wide bandgap semiconductors over traditional silicon for enhanced performance, efficiency, and reliability in high power analog designs. Sanan IC is well positioned for success in serving this high growth, large-scale power electronics market”.

The company’s G06P11 GaN-on-silicon process, having passed the JEDEC standard for process reliability qualification, offers device structures for 650V E-mode FETs which support a drain-to-source on-state resistance RDS(on) range from 50mΩ to 400mΩ. Engineered for low leakage, low gate charge, high current density, and low dynamic specific on resistance (Rsp), it enables ultra-fast switching compact designs for high temperature operation. Following later this year would be the launch of a 200V GaN E-HEMT process as well as a second generation SiC SBD process with a merged PiN Schottky (MPS) diode structure.

GaN-on-silicon as a process technology is ideal for the latest wave of consumer and server applications such as power adapters, USB-PD (power delivery), portable chargers, and power factor correction (PFC) for AC/DC uninterrupted power supplies (UPS). The technology is also getting traction in other markets such as EV/HEV (hybrid/electric vehicles), LiDAR, and wireless charging. According to Yole Développement (Yole), a leading technology market research firm, part of Yole Group of Companies, the GaN power device market is forecasted to have a value over $423M by 2023 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 93% from 2017 to 2023 1 . Sanan IC is dedicated to serving this emerging technology for these multiple market segments in the power electronics industry.

Arion Bank: Discontinued operations and assets held for sale have negative impact on Q3 2019 financial results14.10.2019 20:29:00 CESTPress release

Discontinued operations and assets held for sale will have a negative impact of approximately ISK 3 billion after tax on Arion Bank’s Q3 2019 financial results, compared with a loss of ISK 715 million in Q2 2019. Discontinued operations held for sale refer to assets or companies which the Bank intends to sell in the next few months and are placed below net earnings from continuing operations in the income statement. Increased losses in the quarter are attributable to three factors: As a result of the challenging markets, including the low global price of silicon, Arion Bank is making an impairment of ISK 1.5 billion in respect of assets owned by Stakksberg. Stakksberg is a holding company for the silicon plant at Helguvík which is in the process of being sold. Preparations to sell the plant have been ongoing and an environmental impact assessment has been commissioned and new agreements with energy companies negotiated. Due to difficult conditions in the travel industry, Arion Bank is
