The present day semiconductors used in wireless radiofrequency electronics
are reaching their limits.
As a result the communications industry faces an imminent need
to develop new technologies.

Gallium nitride has emerged as an in-demand semiconductor technology
for future radar, electronic warfare and communications technologies.

NRC’s gallium nitride electronics program
is helping to establish a strong industrial capability for Canadians
by offering its semiconductor foundry services
to key industry players.

The one hundred and fifty million dollar NRC
Canadian gallium nitride foundry is one of only a handful in the world…
… distinguished by its team of expert fabrication engineers and
scientists with decades of industry experience.
(On screen: Innovation)
The foundry gives companies access to state-of-the-art
fabrication and testing facilities…
… and offers single-stop gallium nitride capabilities
for pilot and low-volume production of discretes and circuits.

NRC is currently looking for partnerships with device/components
suppliers and system integrators.
We’d like to strengthen the Canadian supply chain for GaN electronics,
to support homegrown device/component start-ups
And encourage multinational system integrators to expand their presence in Canada.
