Our Focus

Compound semiconductors exploit a growing market where silicon cannot operate, or where they outperform silicon, including Power Electronics; RF & Microwave; Photonics and Sensing. These form the underpinning programmes of the CSA Catapult.

The diagram below shows how a focus on these programmes will result in economic growth through application in key industry sectors such as digital, health, transport and space.

This ‘post-foundry’ focus will make the most of opportunities for innovation and new product development in each of these sectors, including 5G, wearable tech and laser surgery as illustrated below:
