Sales of compound semiconductor chips are soaring. This is being driven by: an uptake in solid-state lighting; rising revenues for smartphones, which are packed with GaAs chips in their front-ends; a build-out of capacity in optical networks; and greater use energy-saving, SiC and GaN devices in power electronics.
These sectors are full of companies making important progress. But which of them has made the biggest breakthrough this year, or the most important contribution?
To showcase the success of companies within the compound semiconductor industry − whether they supply materials, equipment or software, make chips or package devices - we have established the CS Industry Awards. Now in its fifth year, these awards celebrate what is good about our industry - the leaders, the innovative engineers, and those that excel in meeting the needs of their customers.
Nominations are open to all companies, individuals and organisations within the CS industry. Voting will occur through Compound Semiconductor online.
