Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult
Our vision is for the UK to become a global leader in developing and commercialising new applications for compound semiconductors.
We want UK-based businesses to deliver the new products and services of the future and to take advantage of world-class research in this country. End-user sectors can all grow and thrive if they have the right support to develop new products using compound semiconductor devices.
Our aim is to grow the number of UK companies successfully developing compound semiconductor applications and to see economic growth as a result. This will drive growth in the UK electronics sector, keeping more companies ahead of international competition and creating new highly-skilled jobs in the businesses they supply.
The Catapult’s mission is to develop a nexus with the mix of expertise, skills, facilities, equipment and collaborations needed for UK businesses and services. We will operate at the heart of a south Wales-based cluster of businesses, research centres and universities with expertise in compound semiconductors, and will connect that expertise to the wider UK infrastructure including businesses, government departments such as health and transport, other Catapult centres and relevant agencies such as the Advanced Propulsion Centre and the Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles.
Our Innovation Centre will allow businesses to fully exploit the potential of advances in compound semiconductors. Working closely with researchers and industry, we will also increase levels of collaboration and naturally lead to more innovation that the UK can turn into yet more economic growth.
