The Future Of Power Needs To Be Exotic


Moore’s Law follows the continual advancement of smaller silicon transistors, which is ideal for faster operating speeds in processors and increasing memory size density.

However, not all solutions require smaller transistors, and not all are made on silicon wafers. LEDs are made from gallium arsenide (GaAs) and lasers use indium phosphide (InP), while power devices are transitioning to silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) for better performance. These exotic materials deviate from silicon properties and provide superior performance with higher reliability.
