IMEC has demonstrated the growth of low-sheet-resistivity AlGaN/GaN highelectron mobility transistors (HEMTs) on 150mm silicon (Si) wafers. The process paves the way to low-cost GaN power devices for high-efficiency/high-power systems beyond the silicon limits. The high-quality AlGaN and GaN layers were grown in IMEC's new 150mm metal-organic chemical vapor-phase epitaxy (MOVPE) system. This infrastructure extension allows IMEC to offer access to its AlGaN/GaN epiwafers in a service mode to laboratories and partner companies.
