Kopin claims record performance results for its advanced GAIN-HBT transistor wafers. The HBT transistors consist of an InGaP emitter layer and a GaAs collector layer, while the base layer is composed of four elements: Ga, As, In, and N. These devices enable lower voltage operation, higher DC and RF gain, and improved temperature stability compared to standard InGaP and AlGaAs HBTs.

Cambridge Display Technology (CDT) and Luxell Technologies are in dispute over a license agreement. Luxell is seeking damages in excess of $25mn for breach of contract. CDT failed to make a scheduled payment, it is claimed. CDT signed an exclusive license agreement in November 2001 for Luxell's Black Layer technology for the global light emitting polymer (LEP) market (Bulletin 407, November 5, 2001), following earlier evaluation (Bulletin 383, May 21, 2001).

In-Stat/MDR is looking to 18.1% growth in the world semiconductor market next year, according to reports on the Silicon Strategies web site. The 2002 increase is expected to be a marginal 0.1% to $139.1bn. The 2004 growth rate is forecast at 35% to $214.3bn with the 2005 market reaching $242.2bn. In May, In-Stat/MDR was expecting the market to decline 4-5% this year leading in to a 30.7% increase in 2003.

Intel reports Q3 revenues at $6.5bn, comparable with last year's figure. Net income was $686mn, a 547% increase on 2001. The company expects Q4 revenues in the range $6.5-6.9bn. The other main PC processor maker AMD reports sales of $508mn in the quarter to September 29. Net losses were $254mn. The sales were 34% down on last year. Net losses in Q3 2001 were $187mn. AMD says that its Q3 sales were adversely impacted by measures taken to align its supply chain for PC products to customer demand.

A new organic-thin film transistor (organic-TFT) technology on plastic substrates is to be developed as part of a federal US sponsored R&D initiative. The companies involved in the three-year National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Advanced Technology Program are DuPont and Sarnoff. Lucent Technologies' Bell Labs will be subcontracted to develop a new class of organic-TFT materials and design processes. Organic-TFTs could be used to produce full-colour polymer-based active matrix OLED (AM-OLED) displays.

STMicroelectronics and Fujitsu have teamed up to develop the ST19ZR01, claimed as the first contactless smartcard IC with ferroelectric memory (FRAM) and ROM, but no standard RAM. The demonstrator product includes an on-board library of certified cryptographic algorithms. ST will market the technology from Q4 2002.

Aixtron says it has demonstrated MOCVD processes for multi-wafer 200mm GaAs substrates with outstanding performance for the first time ever, Extensive numerical modeling enabled the existing AIX 2600 G3 reactor to be upscaled for 200mm use. Substrates from Freiberger Compound Materials were used in the demonstration. Uniformities at the 1% level are reported across the entire 200mm wafer. Material quality and homogeneity do not differ from results obtained on the well established 150mm systems. Already several AIX 2600G3 systems have been installed at customers for the production of SiGe epi structures, using multiple 200mm substrates.

LSI Logic claims an industry first for copper/low-k processes in wire bond packaging with it Pad on I/O process. This places bond pads directly on top of active I/O circuits in a chip design. Pad on I/O was developed for LSI Logic's Gflx (0.11micron) and G90 (90nm) silicon processes. The Pad on I/O technology can reduce die areas by up to 50% when compared with standard wire bond designs.

QinetiQ has launched a new deep reactive ion etch (RIE) silicon service. The company says the service is the first phase of providing access to a comprehensive, state-of-the-art silicon micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) design and prototyping facility, under its INTEGRAM programme. Prices and operational turnaround depend on the complexity and level of customisation. The Europractice Manufacturing Cluster INTEGRAM (Integrated Microsystems) programme was launched earlier this year with EUR1.3M of European Commission funding.

Technologies and Devices (TDI) has demonstrated production of 50mm diameter GaN templates with p-type electrical conductivity. GaN is the compound semiconductor material used for the fabrication of blue spectrum (blue, green, and ultraviolet and white) light emitting diodes (LEDs), laser diodes (LDs) and high-frequency/high-power transistors. Up to now n-type GaN material technology has seen progress, but lack of a cost effective thick p-type material has hampered development and commercial availability of many types of advanced devices.
