The Virtues of GaN on Silicon
Presented by: Michael Ziehl - VP & GM, Multi-Market Business Unit

With the technology advantages of GaN on Silicon now becoming available at a competitive price level, it is undoubtedly a disruptive technology for RF power applications, particularly in communication and industrial applications where higher reliability and performance justifies a greater initial investment. GaN-on-silicon performance is ideally suited for challenging environments with unpredictable load impedances, exhibiting no performance degradation over time. Furthermore, the GaN-on-silicon process is also scalable, due to its silicon-based cost structure, and provides the capacity and reliability needed to trigger the explosive growth that is anticipated in these burgeoning markets.
