Conference Themes 2014
For the 2014 event we focussed on seven themes. We believe the seven themes provided the most complete coverage of the compound semiconductor industry.
- FRONT-ENDS FOR MOBILE DEVICES »
Handset front-ends are becoming more complex, due to an ever-increasing number of bands used for mobile communication. Will this trend play into the hands of GaAs chipmakers? Or is silicon CMOS technology going to grab market share?
- WIDE BANDGAP RF DEVICES »
GaN and SiC have a great set of attributes that make them very promising materials for producing RF devices. But are they now fulfilling their potential and netting substantial sales?
- LEDs »
LEDs are the dominant source for backlighting screens of all size. So, to penetrate new markets and grow revenues, can chipmakers now trim the cost-per-lumen of the LED or equip the device with additional features?
- SOLAR »
Triple-junction solar cell efficiencies are increasing steadily. Will this help to spur rapid growth in the concentrating photovoltaic sector, or will it be more valued by those requiring a power source for satellites?
- LASERS AND PICs »
Rocketing levels of internet traffic are putting greater and greater strain on optical networks and data centres. Can this be addressed by advancing the performance of conventional lasers, or does the market need to turn to greater use of PICs?
- POWER ELECTRONICS »
Silicon has dominated the power electronic market for decades, but wide bandgap semiconductors will soon replace this material. What’s the primary role for SiC, and where will GaN feature?
- INTEGRATION OF CMOS AND III-Vs »
Silicon is running out of steam, and the future is widely tipped to be high-mobility channels made from germanium and III-Vs. But how will these materials be introduced in the world’s leading silicon foundries?

The doors have closed for CS International 2014, the conference proved to be a record breaking event,
The planning has already started for the 2015 event and we will update you soon.
Take a look at the gallery of the 2014 event.
CS International 2014 was a
resounding success attracting a record number of sponsors and delegates.
The 2015 event will be bigger and better. Make sure your company gets a sponsorship place, the media pack is currently being created.
