    Session 1: Plenary

    Tuesday May 08, 2018 8:30 AM - Tuesday May 08, 2018 12:00 PM

    Chair: Patrick Fay, University of Notre Dame
    Drew Hanser, Veeco Instruments, Inc.

    We kick off the 2018 CS MANTECH Conference with our plenary session. The session will start with the opening ceremonies that include the 2017 Best Paper awards, sponsorship recognition, and a conference overview, but quickly progress to technical presentations. This year’s plenary session will feature three prominent invited industry speakers from across the spectrum of the CS industry, including optoelectronics, automotive applications, and power GaN devices and reliability. The session will start with Andreas Weimar from OSRAM, presenting on the high-volume production of III-V optoelectronics devices. This will be followed by Kamal Khouri from NXP discussing his view of the impact of III-V devices on the automotive industry. The plenary session will conclude with a talk by Umesh Mishra from Transform and UCSB on the performance and reliability of GaN for both RF and power applications.

     

    1.1 Innovated volume production for III-V Compound Semiconductor LED and Laserchips at OSRAM Opto Semiconductors

    OSRAM Opto Semiconductors is one of the worlds leading LED- and Laser company. In this presentation we will give a short introduction including the LED-market and our company – who we are and what we do. We will further give an overview on our main technology platforms and comment on their special technical and manufacturing challenges: 2 inch GaN-based visible blue and green laser diodes, 4 inch based GaAs- Infrared laser diodes, 6 inch sapphire volume emitters, 6 inch InAlGaP-based red, orange and yellow as well as InGaN-based blue and green surface emitting LEDs.

    In order to give also more detailed insights, for each technology platform an example of a special process is given, where we show some key developments which brought those single processes into a mature state suitable for high volume mass production with high quality and yield. Furthermore, we will talk about the increasing importance of industry 4.0 and what this means to our daily production.

    Finally we outline some future technology platforms and their applications.

    1.2 Automotive Industry Trends and Their Impact on the Future Vehicle

    We experience 1.3 million global road fatalities a year. Policies are being put in place to curb greenhouse gases; the US, for example, is mandating 163 grams/mile and 54.5mpg by 2025 per vehicle. On average, humans spend 1 hour per day in a vehicle. How are these three statistics related? They represent the megatrends in the automotive industry that are transforming the vehicle as we know it today.

    Driver replacement, electrification and connectivity are driving and requiring new and more creative innovations in automotive semiconductor technology. In this talk, we discuss these megatrends and the increase in application complexity, compute requirements and data sources and volume they require. We also touch upon the semiconductor needs and requirements to meet the demands of the future vehicle. We hope to motivate the audience to explore and invent new solutions that can support these elements of automotive growth and innovation.
