1989
Silicon Carbide Blue LED

Commercialized the world’s first Silicon Carbide blue LED which enabled full color LED display technology and opened the door to longer lasting and more efficient applications such as, computer screens, other electronics and eventually, smartphones.

1991
First Commercial Silicon Carbide Wafers

Release the world’s first commercial Silicon Carbide wafers, delivering the industry’s most robust, highest-quality materials for the creation of Silicon carbide and GaN-on-Silicon Carbide devices.

1996
Our Blue LEDs Were Used in a Volkswagen® Dashboard

Designed our blue GaN-on-Silicon-Carbide LEDs into the Volkswagen dashboard which was a first and launched a trend in the automotive industry that is still reflected today.

1998
First GaN HEMT on Silicon Carbide

Created the industry’s first GaN HEMT on Silicon Carbide which enabled increased signal gain and a 4x power density (watts per mm) increase for wireless and broadcast high-power applications.

1999
Introduced InGaN Blue and Green LEDs

Introduced InGaN blue and green LED which revolutionized keyboards and displays in the cell phone industry.

2000
First GaN-on-Silicon Carbide MMIC

Demonstrated first ever GaN-on-Silicon-Carbide MMIC with record power density, proving GaN-on-Silicon-Carbide was greatly superior to GaAs, not only supporting higher power output, but also allowing smaller die size for equal power.

2002
600V Commercial Silicon Carbide JBS Schottky Diode

Released our first 600V commercial Silicon Carbide JBS Schottky diode that enabled the creation of ENERGY STAR® 80Plus Gold, Platinum and Titanium power supplies.

2006
First Lighting-Class LED @100 Lumens Per Watt (LPW)

Started the LED Revolution with the first lighting-class LED @ 100 LPW.

2011
First Silicon Carbide MOSFET

Released industry’s first Silicon Carbide MOSFET, a market maker and key building block for more efficient power conversion systems, decreasing size, weight and bill of materials.

2018
First MOSFETs to meet Automotive AEC-Q101 Standards

Released the first commercially available MOSFETs to meet Automotive AEC-Q101 Standards.

2019
XM3 Power Module Platform

Developed the XM3 power module platform which maximizes the benefits of Silicon Carbide, while keeping the module and system design robust, simple, and cost effective.
