Apply for a share of £4m to encourage the commercial use of compound semiconductors.
Programme: Innovate UK
Award: Up to £350k
Opens: 18th Jul 2016
Closes: 26th Oct 2016
Compound semiconductors offer improved performance for applications that currently use silicon-based semiconductors. They open up new application areas that silicon-based semiconductors cannot. But there are technical and business risks across the supply chain. So the development and adoption of new compound semiconductor devices is often held back.
This competition aims to address some of the technical challenges. This is so that businesses can exploit the superior performance of compound semiconductors.
Projects must involve a compound semiconductor material with a scalable market application. Examples of compound semiconductors include: GaAs, GaN, InP, SiC and HgCdTe (gallium arsenide, gallium nitride, indium phosphide, silicon carbide and mercury cadmium telluride).
Innovate UK are interested in projects that address one or more of the following:
thermal management technologies for compound semiconductor packaging, such as multi-phase fluidics
