March 24, 2006 – AmberWave Systems Corp., Salem, NH, a developer of IP relating to strained silicon and other advanced materials, and Purdue U. have agreed to jointly develop technologies for integrating semiconductor devices on III-V materials.
“We have been working on III-V material technology for some time and this collaboration with Purdue will significantly enhance that development,” stated Richard Faubert, AmberWave president and CEO.
Purdue’s principal researcher for the joint work is Peide “Peter” Ye, an expert in III-V MOSFET technology and atomic-layer deposition. He was previously a researcher at Bell Labs and Agere Systems. The main contribution from AmberWave will be expertise in deposition and defectivity in mixed-material systems, as well as a business development process toward commercialization, he stated.
