Semiconductor and its wide world are updating to advanced fabrication processes and wide bandgap semiconductors are of its kind. Among the wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductors, silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) is nowadays recognized as outstanding materials for the future of power electronics. In fact, owing to their excellent properties, they can guarantee a better energy efficiency in power conversion systems with respect to Silicon. Today, although several SiC and GaN devices have already reached the market, there are still many technological issues to be faced in order to fully exploit the enormous potential of these materials.
Macronix International Co., Ltd. (“Macronix”), a leading integrated Device designer and manufacturer in Non-Volatile Memory (NVM), and Hon Hai Technology Group (“Foxconn”), the world’s largest electronics manufacturer and service provider, today announced the signing of an Asset Transaction Agreement for the sales of Macronix’s 6-inch wafer fab and equipment in Hsinchu Science Park to Foxconn for NT$2.52 billion. The transaction is expected to be closed by the end of 2021, and Foxconn plans to increase the monthly production capacity of the fab to 15,000 wafers in 2024.
Microchip Technology has announced its maXTouch MXT2912TD-UW touchscreen controller. This is claimed to be the industry’s first automotive-qualified, single-chip solution that addresses Display sizes up to 45″ with a really wide aspect ratio, supporting LCD and OLED display technologies.
Microchip Technology has added an HLS design workflow, called SmartHLS, to its PolarFire FPGA families that considerably enhances productivity and ease of design by enabling C++ algorithms to be directly translated to FPGA-optimised RTL code.
