Strategy – Venn diagram
Skills Evaluation Modules Challenge Programmes Facilities


Design studio and advanced expertise to create new products using compound semiconductors

Evaluation Modules

Allowing companies to develop prototypes using UK sourced semiconductors and components, where we can

Challenge Programmes

Helping SMEs to supply products to large companies with access to global markets


Laboratories allowing companies to demonstrate market-readiness of new products

Our strategy is to drive economic growth by helping UK companies to accelerate the use of compound semiconductors in their products.

We will achieve this by:

  • developing an innovation centre that offers capabilities and laboratory facilities required by industry to accelerate the development of new products
  • developing, offering and collaborating on evaluation modules for companies to rapidly explore new compound semiconductor technologies, enabling them to enhance their product range and target new markets
  • stimulating demand across the UK supply chain through challenge-led programmes, which will help a number of prioritised industry sectors apply compound semiconductor technologies in their roadmaps out to 2025 and beyond.
