BluGlass and Griffith University to develop next-generation transistors

BluGlass has developed a revolutionary approach for manufacturing semiconductor materials.

The project aims to deliver and drive the adoption of this power electronics innovation

BluGlass Limited (ASX:BLG) has partnered with Griffith University and the Innovative Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre (IMCRC) to develop a transistor for the power electronics industry.

BluGlass will be leading a two-year, $600,000 cash investment (inclusive of a $300,000 grant from the IMCRC) research project in partnership with Griffith University to develop the transistor.

The next-generation Gallium Nitride (GaN) transistor promises a positive and stable threshold voltage, is low on-resistance and has a high breakdown field.

The project aims to deliver and drive the adoption of this electronics innovation that combines two Australian enabling technologies:

- BluGlass’ deposition technology called Remote Plasma Chemical Vapour Deposition (RPCVD) a revolutionary low temperature approach for the manufacture of semiconductor materials; and
- Griffith University’s Queensland Microtechnology Facility (QMF) Atomically Smooth SiC on large Si (SiC on Si) wafers.

Electronics manufacturers currently face high cost barriers for higher performing materials. This research project aims to overcome this industry challenge.

BluGlass’ deposition technology, RPCVD operates at temperatures hundreds of degrees cooler than the current industry incumbent technology.

This offers electronics manufacturers many advantages, including higher performance, lower cost throughputs and the ability to deposit on lower cost substrate such as silicon.

BluGlass shares were last trading 6% higher intra-day, at $0.265.
