10May 2022 News

World's largest 8-inch GaN-on-Si device maker now represented by world's largest semiconductor distributor

May 10, 2022 – Innoscience Technology, a company founded to create a global energy ecosystem based on high-performance, low-cost gallium-nitride-on-silicon (GaN-on-Si) power solutions, has signed a global distribution agreement with WPG Holdings (WPG), giving customers in all parts of the world access to Innoscience’s leading high and low voltage normally-off (enhancement mode) GaN HEMTs.

Dr Denis Marcon, General Manager, Innoscience Europe comments: “Our aim is to ensure that every power electronics designer – no matter where they are based – can benefit from the efficiency, power and size advantages that GaN technology brings. That is why we have invested in huge capacity – the largest in the world. Distribution is also a big part of our plans, and we are excited and honoured to announce WPG – the world’s largest semiconductor distributor – as our first global supply chain partner.”

Adds Nigel Watts, VP, WPG EMEA: “GaN is set for explosive growth as all markets – consumer, communications, automotive, industrial – experience the leap forward in end-product performance they can achieve by switching from traditional silicon-based power devices to GaN. Innoscience is the world's largest 8-inch GaN-on-Si device manufacturer with a capacity of 10,000 8-inch wafers per month (WPM) – which is set to grow to 70,000 WPM by 2025. Therefore it is fitting that Innoscience have signed a global franchise deal with WPG. Product is available NOW and lead-times are far better than the traditional Silicon alternatives. Design now and manufacture sooner.”
