Silvaco Joins SIP Next Generation Power Electronics Project "Research and Development on Fundamental Technologies of Gallium Oxide Power Devices"

YOKOHAMA, JAPAN -- (Marketwired) -- Nov 18, 2014 -- MM Silvaco Japan Co., Ltd (Silvaco) announced that the company has joined the cross-ministerial Strategic Innovation Promotion (SIP) program next generation power electronics project "Research and Development on Fundamental Technologies of Gallium Oxide Power Devices" promoted by New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO)*. Other participants in this project include: National Institute of Information and Communication Technology, Tamura Corporation, Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology and New Japan Radio Co., Ltd.

The National Institute of Information and Communication Technology, Tamura Corporation and KOHA Co., Ltd., successfully developed the world's first MOSFET using gallium oxide; a new semiconductor material with wide band gap. To promote gallium oxide as the next generation power device material, this project included research and development ranging from the basic physical properties to the technologies for future industrial applications, such as bulk and thin-film crystal growth technology, device process technology and module technology. The target of this project is to establish the fundamental technologies for gallium oxide power devices by fiscal year 2018.

Transistors and diodes with gallium oxide are expected to have the advantage in power device characteristics, such as higher breakdown voltage, higher output and lower dissipation compared to traditional compound semiconductor devices. Moreover, it is theoretically possible with ß-Ga2O3 to create large diameter single crystalline substrates by melt growth method, at low energy and for a low cost, enabling production of bulk single crystal. These characteristics will have significant advantages for industrial applications.

Iliya Pesic, President of Silvaco Japan said, "Silvaco has many years of experience in the development, sales and technical support of semiconductor process and device simulators. Silvaco has key advantages in simulation technology for silicon and compound semiconductor power devices. Silvaco's leading edge technologies with proven performance in wide band gap semiconductors will enable it to make a significant contribution to the project."
