This 10 x 10 mm wafer uses Group4 Labs' own technology to atomically attach a single gallium nitride layer to a 25-micron-thick synthetic diamond substrate. The exterior has an atomically smooth finish with a gallium-facing surface that is epi-ready for further epitaxial deposition. It comes freestanding or on a disposable silicon wafer mount. It uses the sub-nanometer proximity of the chip's active region to the diamond to extract heat from the chip's core almost the very instant it is generated, lowering heat build-up during high-power and high-speed transistor applications. The diamond's thermal conductivity is about 3-30 times more than ordinary semiconductors, boosting a transistor array's power-density by at least 10-100 times. It sells for $500-$600 per unit based on quantity. Group4 Labs LLChttp://rbi.ims.ca/4928-637
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
