Kyma Delivers Record Photoconductive Semiconductor Switch Order

30 July 2014 - Raleigh, NC

Kyma Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced materials solutions that promote safety and energy efficiency, announced today the delivery of their largest order to date for their GaN based high power photoconductive semiconductor switch (PCSS) device product line.

The KO-Switch™ is the highest power semiconductor switch of its size with a sub-nanosecond response time. Applications include electric circuit protection, pulsed power, ultra wideband (UWB) radar, and arbitrary waveform generation (AWG).

Kyma president & CEO Keith Evans commented, "This is an important milestone for Kyma. Until today all of our KO-Switch materials and device deliveries have been associated either with deliverables under US DOD R&D contract support or as part of Kyma's collaborations with US defense systems suppliers. This record size order also is the first time we have attracted a major new customer outside of the US for this product line."
