Unit Process Development – Create new processes and lead them to maturity
The production of a microelectronic device is separated into many thousands of processes, which need to be set up, modified and tested. The first webinar of the webinar series will outline Infineon’s metrology setup and gives insights into the process of creating high-quality epitaxial gallium nitride layers.
Speaker: Andreas Jamnig | Unit Process Development Engineer GaN Epitaxy
Infineon production sites are located worldwide and it is his part to make sure that the process delivers the same material, independent of the site it is used at.
- Learn about the main tasks of a Unit Process Development Engineer
- Key issues about creating gallium nitride epitaxial layers
Technology Development in GaN Based Power Devices
We will discuss why GaN is an interesting material for power electronics and look at some of the challenges in fabricating devices on GaN grown on non-native substrates in traditional Si fabs and look at some future directions.
Speaker: Nicholas Dellas | Lead Principal Engineer
His working field includes developing new devices and process technologies to enable industry leading high performance and highly reliable GaN based power devices.
- Explore the challenges that GaN faces
- Learn what technology development engineers are working on to mature this technology
Silicon Carbide Power Devices: Benefits, Device Concepts and Manufacturing Challenges
