Soitec and Intelligent Epitaxy Technology (IntelliEPI) have entered into a collaborative agreement that grants IntelliEPI a technology licence for products involving gallium arsenide (GaAs). The licence may also cover equipment transfer and other future business opportunities in the GaAs market.

"We are delighted to announce the licence of our technology leading to a second source for our products for our key GaAs customers," said Bernard Aspar, Soitec senior vice president and general manager of the company's communication and power business unit.

"This collaborative agreement will reinforce our GaAs technology and product know-how while, at the same time, offering Soitec's customers supply-chain security," said Yung-Chung Kao, IntelliEPI president and CEO.

Gallium arsenide is used in microwave frequency integrated circuits, monolithic microwave integrated circuits, infrared light-emitting diodes, laser diodes, solar cells and optical windows. GaAs also serves as a substrate material for the epitaxial growth of other III-V semiconductors.
