Demand for compound semiconductors is stronger than ever, widely fueled by consumer products for 5G and automotive electrification roadmaps. Gallium Arsenide and Gallium Nitride devices are the new norm for 3D sensing and power management of mobile devices respectively and could also revolution the display industry in the coming years. Silicon Carbide is enabling the rapid transition to high efficacy electric vehicles with design wins or new fabs announced on a near weekly basis. We will discuss the opportunity and challenges these new applications bring and how AIXTRON is continuously developing Product Solutions together with its customers and partners to enable fast adoption and ramp up of these advanced material into new products.
