EpiGaN produces GaN materials for electronic applications: efficient power switching, high-end RF and mmWave amplification and robust sensing. Starting from basic properties of the not-so-wide, wide and ultra-wide bandgap semiconductors, the intrinsic advantages of GaN and its related alloys for different applications will be shown. Besides considerations on the technological challenges and the underlying physics, the talk will further address the manufacturing and commercial aspects. To conclude, there will be a short history of EpiGaN as a company and an overview of its current involvement in various public funded projects.
