Silvaco joins 'GaN Valley'


EDA firm joins wide bandgap semiconductor innovation ecosystem in Europe

EDA firm Silvaco has joined GaN Valley, a technology hub in Europe targeting the growing industry for GaN-based electronic systems that are more efficient, smaller, lighter, and lower cost.

“Silvaco has a long history of developing TCAD technologies targeting GaN semiconductor process and device innovations with its Victory TCAD platform,” said Eric Guichard, SVP and GM of TCAD Business Unit at Silvaco. “By joining GaN Valley we will share know-how and collaborate with leading research teams within the GaN Valley members to bring new innovative solutions to the design community and help build a strong ecosystem for designing GaN-based semiconductors.”

“With rapidly evolving GaN technology and an expected $2B market by 2027, GaN is taking its place in the power semiconductor market,” said Marnix Tack, co-founder of GaN Valley and CTO of BelGaN Foundry. “GaN Valley is a new and unique ecosystem developing in Europe, currently having close to 60 members active along the GaN value chain in Europe. Through connecting and collaboration, GaN Valley will accelerate innovation and business development of a GaN-based industry in Europe and beyond.”
