During the «3rd Shanghai FTZ Overseas Talents Innovation Conference» which was held from October 16 – 19 2018 in Shanghai, China. AIXaTECH was awarded with the trophy for the business with the highest investment and market potential.
Out of 700 business cases the jury selected the most promising companies in the field of Integrated Circuits, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and Biomedical Appliances. AIXaTECH was awarded with the first place for the big potential of AIXaTECHs novel Low Temperature Epitaxy process for the semiconductor industry. Aside the disruptive cost advantages the functional and ecological advantages of AIXaTECHs technology convinced the jury. ”Our Low Temperature Epitaxy equipment is seen as a fundamental corner stone to shape future markets significantly: MicroLEDs substituting OLEDs for the next generation of displays need to be manufactured at a lower cost level than on existing production lines. Wide band gap high power electronics need to achieve price parity between silicon and GaN to hit the market. With the transformation of mobile telecommunication systems to 5G the need for highly competitive bulk acoustic wave filters will show a sharp rise.” says Dr. Volker Sinhoff, CEO of AIXaTECH GmbH. “Aside these predictable market developments our technology opens up the potential for completely new markets like large format LEDs in the size of windows or direct epitaxial growth on flexible substrates.” strengthens Dr. Yilmaz Dikme, CTO of AIXaTECH GmbH the value of the novel epitaxy.
