Kyma Technologies, Inc. (Kyma) and OSEMI Inc. will join forces at SEMICON China to market both companies products. SEMICON China will be held later this week at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai, China.


David Braddock, founder and CEO of OSEMI, and Keith Evans, president and CEO of Kyma, will be on hand at OSEMI's tradeshow exhibit booth to discuss Kyma's growing product line of low defect density gallium nitride (GaN) and aluminum nitride (AlN) substrates and related products and services.

OSEMI has been marketing Kyma's advanced crystalline gallium nitride (GaN) and aluminum nitride (AlN) substrate materials and related products and services in China since mid 2006.

About Kyma Technologies

Kyma was spun out of North Carolina State University's Materials Science and Engineering Department in 1998 to pursue the development of gallium nitride (GaN) and aluminum nitride (AlN) substrates for a broad range of high performance nitride semiconductor device applications. Kyma's substrates have great potential to enable critically needed improvements in device cost, performance, and reliability and thus are expected to replace most foreign substrates such as sapphire and silicon carbide for the most demanding applications.

Kyma's diversified product offering includes: ultra-low defect density native (free-standing) GaN in customer-defined orientation including c-plane and non-polar, GaN and AlN templates grown on sapphire and other substrates, and ultra-high purity polycrystalline GaN.

The market for nitride semiconductor devices is expected to surpass $9B by 2010. The combined market for GaN and AlN substrates is expected to surpass $500M by 2010.
