Skorpios Semiconductor Acquires Texas Fab

News

Silicon photonics company enhances integration and manufacturing capability with Novati Technologies acquisition

Skorpios Technologies, a US System on Chip (SoC) company, has acquired Novati Technologies, a semiconductor integration company and fab located in Austin, Texas.

The Novatis facility is known for its innovative work in 2.5D/3D integration, photonics, MEMS sensors, and micro fluidics for medical applications. Skorpios has a proprietary wafer scale process that allows it to monolithically integrate silicon with III-V gain materials used as the active medium, to create silicon photonic ICs.

Prior to the acquisition, Skorpios had developed its heterogeneous integration process in collaboration with Novati, and was building its ICs in Novati's foundry. After the acquisition, Skorpios will immediately ramp up production, starting with its 100Gb QSFP CWDM4 optical transceiver.

"This transaction marks an exciting time in Skorpios' history," said Stephen Krasulick, chairman, founder and CEO of Skorpios. "The ability to develop and commercialise products based on our proprietary heterogeneous integration process in our own foundry is the next logical step in the evolution of our company. With this acquisition, Skorpios will be well positioned to deliver highly differentiated products with shorter development cycles.

"We believe there are tremendous synergies between Skorpios' heterogeneous integration platform and the technologies currently being developed and offered at Novati."

Skorpios' platform can be used to address a wide range of applications: high speed video, data and voice communications for networking, cloud computing, consumer, medical, and more.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
