EpiGaN named in 2019 Global Cleantech 100 list

At the 17th annual Cleantech Forum San Francisco, EpiGaN nv of Hasselt, near Antwerp, Belgium – which supplies gallium nitride on silicon (GaN-on-Si) and gallium nitride on silicon carbide (GaN-on-SiC) epitaxial wafers for power switching, RF and sensor applications – has again been included by the Cleantech Group (CTG) in its annual Global Cleantech 100 list.

Featuring independent, for-profit companies best positioned to solve future clean technology challenges, the Global Cleantech 100 lists companies with the highest potential for a market impact. The list combines proprietary CTG research data with qualitative judgments from an 87-person expert panel.

Incorporated in 2010, EpiGaN was founded by chief executive officer Dr Marianne Germain, chief technology officer Dr Joff Derluyn and chief operating officer Dr Stefan Degroote as a spin-off of nanoelectronics research center Imec of Leuven, Belgium. The founders jointly developed GaN-on-Si technology at Imec, part of which has been licensed to EpiGaN. EpiGaN was joined in 2011 by start-up investment firms Robert Bosch Venture Capital, Capricorn CleanTech Fund and LRM (to enable the installation of its wafer production facility) and in August 2016 by ACAPITAL.

“Innovative GaN technology enables drastic energy savings, volume and weight reductions of power systems, miniaturization and significant cost reduction in areas where traditional silicon solutions cannot meet current or future system requirements,” says EpiGaN's CEO & co-founder Dr Marianne Germain. “EpiGaN offers unique and state-of-the-art solutions addressing the demanding mm-wave specifications for 5G cellular networks. EpiGaN's product portfolio also covers sensor applications,” she adds. “At our production facility in Hasselt (Belgium), we have developed unique GaN-on-Si and GaN-on-SiC wafer technologies up to 200mm on Si, and 150mm on SiC, which are more robust and offer differentiation to our global customer base. This year we are significantly scaling up our production capacity to meet the increasing demand of our customers.”
