Research and Markets: RF GaN Technology & Market Analysis: Applications, Players, Devices & Substrates 2010-2020

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wnc6jq/rf_gan_technology) has announced the addition of the "RF GaN Technology & Market Analysis: Applications, Players, Devices & Substrates 2010-2020" report to their offering.

Today, the need for high-power, high-frequency transistors is increasing steadily, commensurate with the huge demand for wireless telecommunications.

More power, more frequency bands, better linearity and improved efficiency are still driving RF semiconductor devices' current development, since the market needs devices able to handle all of these specifications at a reasonable price.

Recent mergers and acquisitions are a concern for the overall RF market and Si-LDMOS, GaAs and GaN-based devices. The overall RF market doesn't seem big enough for so many players; as a result, companies are trying to gain scale in order to increase profitability, which has stagnated. We expect that commercial wireless telecom, CATV and defense applications will be the main applications affected.

Although significant improvements have been achieved in RF GaN-based devices (performance and yields), there's still a barrier preventing GaN-on-SiC from entering mainstream applications (i.e. in wireless telecom base stations or CATV). In sub-3.5 GHz range applications, GaN-on-SiC is not cost-effective enough vs. Si-LDMOS, resulting in low market penetration rates.
