Technology Scotland's Compound Semiconductor Roadmapping Workshop
Wed 26 April 2017, 09:30 – 16:00 BST
Sign up for this event is done through an expression of interest on Eventbrite, due to a limited number of tickets available. Sign up is intended for industrialists & academics working in Compound Semiconductors.
Delegate list information will be shared with the KTN, our partner organisation.
According to recent market reports, the compound semiconductor market is expected to grow at a CAGR of some 12.6% from 2014 to 2020, and reach some $105 billion by 2020. Their unique properties find wide applications in Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), high speed, high power devices, lasers, sensors, and IR-visible-UVs. Key end markets for compound semiconductors include ICT, space, aerospace and defence; industrial, power, solar and wind; consumer electronics, automotive, and medical.
Scotland has a strong technology capability in compound semiconductor applications. The challenge for the community is to ensure that there is a robust supply chain that can take material, device and component innovations through to full exploitation in integrated systems for end markets.
This workshop aims to create a road-map for the Scottish CSA community, providing a valuable tool for stakeholders to determine where they can best fit into this chain, and identifying opportunities for future research, development and business.
With the UK government announcement of a £50m Compound Semiconductor Applications (CSA) Catapult centre in South Wales, it is more important than ever that the Scottish CSA community comes together to identify future opportunities, assess current competencies and strengths, and establish how best to work with the Catapult in the future.
Attendees will hear from 3-4 industry and academic speakers, followed by a facilitated workshop from Alastair McGibbon, CTO of the National Microelectronics Institute. The ultimate aim of the day will be to create a Scottish Cluster Map & Technology Roadmap, highlighting the Scottish CSA landscape and capabilities.
