DIAMFAB, a technology at the heart of innovation for energetic transition
DIAMFAB’s high added value wafers, a unique worldwide offer based on a technology and an expertise from 30 years of R&D.
TO GO FURTHER WITH DIAMOND
DIAMFAB, the diamond solution for power electronic and extreme conditions.
In a context of electrification and hybridration of our transports and where the innovations and devices need even more electric energy to work, it is becoming urgent to choose materials which allow to obtain a greater energetical efficiency and a superior power density. The diamond is considered as the ultimate semiconductor, outperforming the performances of all other materials on the market, old (Si, GaAs) and new (GaN and SiC). The diamond semiconductor will be the prerequisite to go further, protect better and consume less.
DIAMFAB’s electronic grade diamond technology is positioning as the solution to resolve today’s and tomorrow’s energetic transition issues. Involved in different fields linked to diamond semiconductor and its applications, our company is expert in epitaxial diamond layer growth and in the development of diamond electronic components. Our expertise allows us to control the doping and the thickness of our layers with a unique precision and quality in order to obtain electronic grade diamond.
Thus, our high added value diamond wafers added to the perfectly mastered electronic properties are ready to be processed in clean rooms. To know more check our product page.
DIAMOND MAIN ASSETS
Diamond: to go further than SiC and GaN
VOLUME AND WEIGHT GAIN
HIGH TEMPERATURES OPERATION
HIGH RADIATION TOLERANCE
HIGH VOLTAGES RESISTANCE
A “green” technology
DIAMFAB’s diamond wafers and process allow to reduce the devices’ environmental impact and optimize their energetic consumption.
A diamond electronic component take part in the low electric consumption:
- Directly: by increasing the output of the diamond component based devices and thus decreasing the energy loss.
- Indirectly: by reducing the vehicle consumption thanks to the loss of weight in the on board power electronic.
The diamond mainly composed of carbon is produced at DIAMFAB from methane, a gas which can be produced by natural and biologic means and without resources limitations.
Our Diamond wafers are chemically neutral. The diamond components will have a huge lifespan thanks to the extraordinary properties of this material. Yet if it comes to be necessary, the diamond components could be recycled to separate the metals from the diamond.
