The global GaN radio frequency (RF) devices market to grow at a CAGR of 18.94% during the period 2016-2020.
The report considers the use of GaN RF devices in different end-user segments such as cellular infrastructure (telecom towers, base stations, telecom infrastructure, and cellular networks); defense sector (military communications, radar, and electronic warfare); CATV (cable television dishes); and others (medical, satellite communications, broadband amplifiers, wired broadband, and ISM band applications). The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
Silicon has been the preferred choice for computing and electronic devices since its invention almost 50 years ago. However, the constant evolution of technology demands high power and ever greater enhancements in the core semiconductor materials to ensure high performance. GaN has superior properties than silicon such as high breakdown voltage and saturation velocity.
The bandgap in GaN is almost thrice the bandgap of silicon. Thus, GaN has the ability to improve power conversion efficiencies, raise power density levels, extend battery lives, and accelerate switching speeds in different end-user segments such as consumer electronics products, telecommunications hardware, electric vehicles, or domestic appliances.
