I believe it is better than Sapphire. but if take cost into consideration, would it be a cost competitive solution than sapphire? how does GaN perform in light efficience if compared with SiC.

Better thermal conductivity is the need of the present day semiconductor devices specially in Power Electronics segment and Lighting LEDs, as the Sumitomo suggests this might be a good replacement of the material used now.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
