The long-term potential for this thing is being able to bring the computing power of silicon and the communications capability of gallium arsenide
TriQuint Semiconductor designs and manufactures a wide range of high- and low-frequency products across all common high- and low-power ratings using gallium arsenide
, surface acoustic wave (SAW) and bulk acoustic wave (BAW) processes for many different communications applications including military, commercial network infrastructure, sat-com, wireless (cellular) base stations and fiber optic networks.
In the 2 years since, the roughly 100 researchers assigned to the project have surmounted many hurdles, including getting gallium arsenide
to bond to the entire surface of an underlying layer of STO.
This gallium arsenide
switch is built for 4-18 GHz operation using TriQuint's proven VPIN production process.
Although silicon is by far the most widely used semiconductor today, gallium arsenide
has advantages in certain applications.
an ISO 9001-registered company, designs, develops and supplies high performance gallium arsenide
(GaAs) semiconductors for microwave and millimeter-wave wireless communications applications.
Products are based on advanced process technologies including gallium arsenide
, indium phosphide, silicon germanium, and surface acoustic wave (SAW).
Silver atoms tend to form islands when deposited onto gallium arsenide
at room temperature.
TriQuint, a recognized world leader in gallium arsenide
(GaAs) monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) technology, offers an unparalleled selection of radio-frequency (RF), microwave and millimeter-wave integrated circuits (ICs) and modules used in mobile phones and base station infrastructure, and GaAs IC foundry services covering frequencies through 80 GHz.
Eaves and his colleagues obtained their results using a tunnel diode, in which electrons leak into a so-called quantum well consisting of a thin layer of gallium arsenide
sandwiched between walls of aluminum gallium arsenide
Strategy Analytics, the global research and consulting company, has released, "GaAs Industry Forecast: 2003-2008," its five-year outlook for the Gallium Arsenide
microelectronics industry, forecasting a compound average growth rate of 7 percent for the 2003-2008 timeframe.
Devices made from gallium arsenide
and related semiconductors emit light and operate significantly faster than their silicon counterparts.
