ALLOS offers AZZURRO patents and technology transfer and licencing

ALLOS Semiconductors GmbH of Dresden, Germany, which was founded in June, says that it has acquired (via auction) the exclusive ownership of all technology, know-how and intellectual property of the former AZZURRO Semiconductors AG, which made gallium nitride (GaN) epitaxial wafers based on large-area silicon substrates.

Specializing in gallium nitride on silicon (GaN-on-Si) technology and markets, ALLOS provides engineering and consulting services worldwide, and offers advice on patent landscape, market and technology strategy as well as customized developments and technology demonstrations. Furthermore, its GaN-on-Si technology is made available to customers through technology transfers and licencing.

ALLOS says that the driving force behind its foundation was the growing demand for technology to grow GaN-on-Si substrates. An increasing number of LED and power semiconductor companies aim to master the technology to grow 150mm and 200mm GaN-on-Si wafers themselves in order to supply cost-effective high-quality GaN devices processed in standard silicon fabs, adds the firm.

There are tremendous technical challenges to making GaN-on-Si happen, comments ALLOS. For customers the opportunity is to reduce not only cost and time-to-market but also the development risk by basing their effort on proven GaN-on-Si platform and know-how, says the firm.

ALLOS says that it acquired exclusive ownership of AZZURRO’s technology, know-how and intellectual property in order to strengthen its service offering with what it describes as pioneering technology that was continuously refined towards production readiness over the last decade.

ALLOS is therefore now also making the proven AZZURRO technology platform available through technology transfer, licencing and customized development work, complementing ALLOS’ existing service offering advice on business and technology strategies and supporting setting up GaN-on-Si operations (all the way from establishing an epitaxial wafer fab to market entry).
