Advanced Materials, Better for the Planet
Impact of temperature on power electronics
Reduce device lifetime
Limit the device performance
Increase the power consumption
Current methods for thermal management are no longer effective to address new generation of power electronic devices
CVD Diamond growth on semiconductor substrates
on GaN on Si
High quality Diamond on semiconductor substrates with enhanced physical properties than traditional electronic wafers at an affordable price
Benefits for electronic devices
Power Consumption Dropped
with Heat Spreaders
Diamond heat spreaders are very efficient:
50°C of temperature reduction !
Electronic lifetime multiply by 5 !
Thermal Dissipation multiply by 8 (vs Si & GaN) !
Similar thermal performances as expensive GaN on Diamond
“ICT’s share of global greenhouse gas emissions actually lies between 2.1-3.9 %. ICT GHG emissions could be as high as 8 % by 2025»
Advantages of diamond
Diamond has the highest bulk thermal conductivity
Passive cooling approach as heat spreaders
Good p-type semiconductor properties
Excellent potential for power electronics
