Description

KnowMade III Patent Watch

Take advantage of monthly updates on new patent applications, new granted patents, patents newly expired or abandoned, the latest patent transfers and patent litigation

THE III-N PATENT LANDSCAPE IS THE MOST DYNAMIC IN COMPOUND SEMICONDUCTORS

The III-V nitride semiconductor family has attracted significant research attention over the last 25 years, resulting in intensive patenting activity, with a substantial increase during the past decade. More than 80,000 patents and patent applications related to III-N technology have been published worldwide since the early 1990s. According to Yole Développement, the global GaN market was estimated to be worth US$16 Billion in 2016 and should reach US$20 Billion by 2020 at a 5% compound annual growth rate between 2016 and 2020, mainly boosted by newly emerging markets such as radio-frequency and power GaN. Today, ever more players are entering this market. GaN technology is spreading across the value chain, but the consolidation of the market should accelerate in the coming years.

In such a fast-growing and dynamic III-N market, it is essential to track patents in order to anticipate changes, quickly detect business opportunities, mitigate risks, and make strategic decisions.

Patent Watch Service image 1

Keep a watch on your competitors’ IP activities and their future intentions.
With the help of the patent watch service, you will be aware of your competitors‘ current patenting activities, their IP dynamics, patent transfers including acquisitions and licenses, patent litigation, technology development and R&D strategies. You will also be able to rapidly detect new entrants in your business area .

Keep track of the latest technology developments and follow technology trends.
By keeping note of any recent patent filings, you can track the newest innovations in the III-N field. You will get details on claimed inventions and you can follow technology developments. New technical solutions could inspire and improve your R&D activity.

Prevent registration of IP rights that may be harmful to your business.
You will obtain information on patent applications filed even before exclusive rights have been granted and you can react in time to prevent registration of IP rights that may be harmful to your business.

React in time to infringements and mitigate legal risks.
Monitoring both newly-issued patents and patent litigation allows you to regularly assess your freedom-to-operate, ensuring your products or processes are not covered by granted patents and thus they can be manufactured, sold or used safely without infringing valid IP rights owned by others.

Take advantage of free technologies and decrease R&D project risks.
By tracking both expired patents and abandoned patents, you will be able to identify inventions entering the public domain that you can use safely for your development.

 

USEFUL MONTHLY PATENT DATABASE

The III-N patent watch service updates you every month with a useful Excel database including the latest patent applications, newly granted patents, expiring and abandoned patents, patent transfers including acquisitions and licenses, and noteworthy news on patent litigation related to III-N technologies such as GaN, AlN, InN and AlGaN, InGaN, AlInN alloys.
The patents are categorized by application covering LEDs, Lasers, Power Electronics, Radio-Frequency Devices, MEMS and Sensors, and Photovoltaics, structure type, covering bulk GaN substrates, freestanding, templates, epiwafers and nanowires, host substrates including GaN-on-Sapphire, GaN-on-Silicon and GaN-on-SiC, growth technique, covering MOCVD, MBE, HVPE, Ammonothermal, LPE, and material properties such as polar, non-polar, and semi-polar. This useful patent database allows for multi-criteria searches and includes patent numbers, hyperlinks to the original document, priority dates, patent assignees, titles, abstracts, claims, technological segments, and current legal status, noting whether they’re pending, granted, expired or abandoned. The Excel file also includes graphs in order to highlight the main patent applicants and assignees, countries of patent filings and IP dynamics of each segment.
