SEMI China forms Power and Compound Semiconductor Committee

SEMI China (the China branch of industry association Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International) has announced the establishment of a Power and Compound Semiconductors Committee, which held its kick-off meeting in Shanghai on 28 July.

At the meeting, SEMI China's president Dr Lu Haoan introduced the SEMI China team to concepts around the promotion of industrial cooperation and exchange platform constructed of industrial development. At the meeting, the group adopted the 'SEMI Chinese Power and Compound Semiconductor Committee Charter' and selected Dr Zhang Naiqian of News Energy Ltd Suzhou as co-chair.

The committee is composed of global power and compound semiconductor companies (including Infineon and NXP), three safety optoelectronics firms, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, telecoms energy semiconductor firms (PlayNitride Inc, Cham Crystal Semiconductor, Silicon Cenda, CSR Electric, Silver Mao Microelectronics, Huahong Hong force, Tower Jazz CNR), and electricity companies.

At the meeting, Dr Zhang Naiqian discussed the characteristics and advantages of gallium nitride (GaN) RF devices and power electronic devices, as important core devices as GaN power electronics play an increasingly important role in the potential future development of computers, mobile communications, networking, automotive electronics, power transmission, modern transportation and other industries. Also, Dr Zhuang Weidong, general manager of Nanjing Silver Mau Microelectronics Co Ltd, discussed 'Chinese IGBT technology and market development', and shared the latest advances in the silicon insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) industry and market forecasts for the future.

At the meeting, the members of the Power and Compound Semiconductors Committee worked on SEMI's future direction, and discussed how to work together to build the community. Members concluded that the development of industry standards and a thematic meeting on technology and the market, together with industrial policy advocacy, can help to build a bridge between domestic and foreign enterprises.
