Shanghai-based Eta moving HQ to Tongling in September
Eta Research of Shanghai, China is moving in September to its new headquarters in Tongling, Anhui Province, after beginning construction on the new factory in 2017.
Founded in 2015, the firm first offered 2” and 4” gallium nitride (GaN) wafers to customers in 2020 and is currently focused on the development and production of free-standing GaN wafers. Developed at the Shanghai site, the GaN wafer production process includes self-developed hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE) growth equipment, wafer separation method, and GaN wafer polishing. The firm offers n-type GaN wafers for LEDs, laser diodes, and power devices. Semi-insulating GaN wafers are available for lateral GaN RF devices.
