Yole Développement organizes a LED and Power Electronics Seminar in Korea. Dedicated to LED and Power Electronics areas, the seminar is made up of Yole Développement presentations on the related market area, System Plus Consulting tools presentations (Reverse Costing and Cost Simulation).
Discover below the detailed agenda:

January 29, 2013
9.00 AM – Welcome breakfast
9.30 AM - 12.30 AM: LED from substrates to lighting applications
• Overall LED market and industry status (visible and UV light)
LED TV was expected to be the LED industry driver for 2011 but the reality was quite different…. As a consequence, packaged LED volume was about 30% lower than expected and revenue shrank due to strong ASP pressure.  In 2012, most companies have moved to the new “El Dorado” the of LED business: General Lighting, which represents the next killer application for LEDs.  But enabling massive adoption of the technology for such an application still requires a large decrease in the cost of LED-based products... On its side UV LED, despite a smaller market potential, now generates several 10’s of M$ and OLED is positioning as a strong competing technology after 2015…
• Sapphire, SiC, Silicon, AlN: what future LED will be made of?
Significant overcapacity and low LED substrate prices will affect the profitability and viability of many sapphire players in 2013 and beyond, but emerging applications and material could transform the industry. This paper presents an in-depth analysis of the requisite conditions for the success of sapphire vs. LED-on-Si and reveals how bulk-GaN could capture some niche markets thanks to higher performance and competitive system-level cost of ownership
• Front-end and packaging manufacturing technologies and new challenges
LED manufacturing still uses methods that would be considered outdated in most semiconductor industries. Consolidation and emergence of LED “giants” will also facilitate and speed up adoption of manufacturing paradigms coming from the IC industry. This paper presents a detailed analysis of front-end and packaging LED manufacturing process, equipment and LED chip design trends.

Coffee break (30 min)

• Reverse engineering and costing results for some of the most famous packaged LED
A “Reverse Costing” report includes technological data and economical calculations. Usually based on the teardown of a sample, it provides detailed information on the process involved, the materials and dimensions. A process flow is extracted from these observations, completed with publicly available data, and simulated using a cost simulation tool. Multiple results are obtained, from cost per step to yield influence.
Several examples of reverse costing reports of LED will be shown. The objective of this review is to get an overview on the state of the art in the design and manufacturing of various LED devices and to understand which choices are validated by the industry.
• Demonstration of LED CoSim+: reverse costing simulation tool
Due to their non-standard manufacturing process, the cost of LED devices can be difficult to estimate. We have developed a new version of our LED Manufacturing Cost Simulation Tool, more flexible and ready to evaluate the cost of any LED, including front-end and back-end. This new tool, already used by R&D centers as well as end users, offers the possibility to store steps and process flows in libraries thus reducing dramatically the duration of the cost evaluation.
This tool is ideal for strategic marketing executives, process managers and R&D engineers analyzing the economic feasibility of different LED manufacturing approaches. A demonstration of the tool will be performed.

From 12.30 AM to 2.00 PM – Lunch & Networking
2.00 PM - 4.30 PM: Power electronics: Will wide bandgap technologies erode silicon monopoly?

• Overall power electronics market and technologies: How IGBT, SJ MOSFET, SiC and GaN will shape the power industry
With an expected -20% negative growth for overall 2012, power electronics industry is now looking for new applications powered by new technologies. This paper will review what occurred in 2012 and will highlight how innovating semiconductor devices will open the doors to a brighter future, driven by green-tech demand
• Focus on SiC: PV inverters have started massively adopting SiC: why and what next?
Now that SiC MOSFET is available in mass production, integrators have started using it in commercial products. PV inverter is probably the most targeted application, as the added value of SiC vs. Si, despite a higher cost, would allow reaching a payback time in less than 1 year. This paper will highlight the recent moves, the life & death in the SiC industry as well as the expected roadmap to 2020
• Focus on GaN: 200V today, 600V tomorrow? What impact and what technology roadmap?
Will 2013 be the introduction time of GaN 600V devices? This key parameter will help shaping the industry for the next 5 years. More and more traditional power companies are now developing GaN, however market remains desperately low…. Where are we? Where do we go? Will GaN keep all its promises…..

Coffee Break (30 min.)

• Reverse engineering and costing results for some of the most recent WBG devices: EPC GaN HEMT & Cree SiC MOSFET
A “Reverse Costing” report includes technological data and economical calculations. Usually based on the teardown of a sample, it provides detailed information on the process involved, the materials and dimensions. A process flow is extracted from these observations, completed with publicly available data, and simulated using a cost simulation tool. Multiple results are obtained, from cost per step to yield influence.
Several examples of reverse costing reports of WBG devices will be shown. The objective of this review is to get an overview on the state of the art in the design and manufacturing of various power transistors devices like the EPC GaN HEMT and the Cree SiC MOSFET.
• Demonstration of Power CoSim+: reverse costing simulation tool
Due to their non-standard manufacturing process, the cost of power devices can be difficult to estimate. We have developed a new version of our Power Manufacturing Cost Simulation Tool, more flexible and ready to evaluate the cost of any power module, including front-end and back-end, for discrete devices or complete power modules. This new tool, already used by manufacturers as well as end users, offers the possibility to store steps and process flows in libraries thus reducing dramatically the duration of the cost evaluation.
This tool is ideal for strategic marketing executives, process managers and R&D engineers analyzing the economic feasibility of different power device manufacturing approaches. A demonstration of the tool will be performed.

4.30 PM – Networking
5.30 PM – End of the seminar
