GaN technology is pretty hot in some academic circles (see presentations at CMOSET conference for example)...that fact that process has been in development since 1999 tells you it is an easy process to work with...Kris

GaN seems to be getting a lot of buzz these days. If -TriQuint Semiconductor, Inc continues to dominate this market, they can as well become the force and open for major acquisition in the industry

It seems also very interesting in the context of low dislocation GaN from companies like Ammono.

I remember when GaAs (gallium arsenide) was a hot research topic in the 1980's, but it never got beyond niche markets because CMOS advancing way beyond expectations. I almost have to laugh that 0.25um GaN is cutting-edge, and 25nm CMOS has been in volume production for more than a year now (flash memory). I say "almost" because 0.25um GaN can run a lot faster than 0.25um Si; I'm curious what kind of speeds will be attainable at smaller geometries.
