Gallium Arsenide (GaAs)

Gallium Arsenide may be a mature RF semiconductor process, but it is still in high demand. GaAs devices are fast, flexible and low-noise, and they are commonly used in weak-signal amplification applications, including ultra-high RF, fast electronic switching, LEDs and solar. Market demands for handsets and LEDs in lighting and automotive are expected to be primary drivers for the GaAs wafer market over the next few years.
