Could Graphene by the Answer to the Semiconductor Shortage?

Semiconductors, which date back to the 19th century, are used everywhere in electronic devices, from automobile systems and air conditioners to laser treatment in cutting-edge medical systems. The continuing global shortage in semiconductors impacts how high-tech products are made around the world — the automotive industry alone is expected to lose $210 billion in revenue, with major players like BMW, Volkswagen and Ford already reporting the effects.

CVD Graphene for Electronic Applications: 2021 Status and Outlook

Given the exciting properties, graphene has always been linked as a revolutionary material for the electronics industry. CVD graphene is cited as the ideal solution in providing a perfect single layer produced in a low cost continuous R2R process, but the manufacturing and commercial reality have proved very different. After a long period of research, and with players regularly exiting and entering the field, we are only now starting to see this technology mature and the dawn of the commercial reality.

PlayNitride

The Taiwan-based company PlayNitride Inc. was founded in 2014. The company's initial know-how was mainly in LEDs but gradually expands its coverage. The company does not only covers PixeLED® Display Technology based on MicroLED, but also UVolution Solution by UV LED, and PlayBeacon Package by iBeacon. In the µLED display area, PlayNitride integrates µLED epitaxy, chip fabrication and mass transfer, which is advantageous compared to companies who only focuses on mass transfer technologies. When the company was founded, there was about 70 people in the team. The number has expanded to more than 100 in 2019.
