Translucent is sampling the following semiconductor on silicon products:
Translucent's wafer, solar cells and transistors
Our technology development is underpinned by a deep and fundamental understanding of the nature of semiconductor materials engineering. Our scientists and engineers have taken this technology from the science lab and have developed scalable manufacturing prototypes. Prototypes are presently being evaluated and their performance improved. We expect to sample commercially available devices to key customers in the late 2013 to early 2014 timeframe. Translucent's technology has been discussed in the following articles:
We are presently improving the manufacturing processes and developing prototype demonstration devices. The target wafer size for these new 'on-silicon' technologies is 6 to 8 inchs, to take advantage of available silicon fab capacity.
