I concur with walken1 in that I was surprised that the MOCVD tool was not from Veeco. Was not aware that Applied works in this space.

I think it's interesting that it was an AMAT MOCVD tool that was involved in this project and not Veeco or Aixtron (which together make up 97% of the MOCVD market). Kudos to Applied for being strategic in their approach to entering this market.

Sounds very promising. Hopefully it will be successful in production and we'll see production quantities at reasonable pricing.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
