AZZURRO is granted 2.6 million Euro for 200 mm GaN-on-Si epiwafer development
AZZURRO Semiconductors AG’s development of next generation gallium nitride on 200 mm silicon substrates is supported by the local government of Saxony.
The minister for science and technology, Sabine von Schorlemer handed the official grant note to the company today. The project is financed with 2.6 million Euro from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Free State of Saxony.
"We are very happy to welcome AZZURRO as another partner in Silicon Saxony and to support the 200 mm GaN‐on‐Si‐wafer‐technology development of AZZURRO. The company’s move is another recognition of this great semiconductor location“, said minister Sabine von Schorlemer at the occasion. The company addresses the huge growth markets LED (> 10 billion US Dollar, 2010) and power semiconductors (> 15 billion US Dollar, 2010). For these markets a dynamic technology development is a key factor. With its large GaN‐on‐Si‐wafers AZZURRO enables its worldwide customers the use of low cost standard silicon processing lines to produce energy‐efficient LEDs as well as novel, energy‐efficient power semiconductor devices.
