Gallium Nitride (GaN) is a wide band gap semiconductor material. Owing to its electrical properties such as saturation velocity and high breakdown voltage, GaN is an ideal choice for high power applications in high voltage switching devices such as RF power amplifiers. Compared to silicon and gallium arsenide, GaN is a matured technology and provides benefits of reducing device size by eliminating cooling requirements which, in turn, reduces the cost of the device.

Growing need for power efficient semiconductor devices coupled with increasing application areas, especially in the field of computers, ICT, consumer electronics, automotive and industrial sector have fuelled the growth of GaN semiconductor devices market. In automotive sector, GaN LEDs have already started replacing incandescent lamps. In consumer electronics sector, the rising demand for fixed and wireless devices such as TVs, laptops, gaming devices and smartphones is expected to drive the GaN semiconductor device market. Currently, military is the largest application area for GaN semiconductor device market. The continuous need for enhanced military performance is expected to drive the GaN semiconductor market for military applications in the coming future. However, consumer electronics is expected to remain dominant application segment for GaN semiconductor device during the forecast period.

In case of product types, currently, GaN is increasingly used in opto semiconductors. GaN acts as a dominant material of choice for opto semiconductors as it helps to combat power loss thereby saving energy. However, power semiconductors show fastest growth potential during the forecast period as GaN is increasingly used in military and industrial applications.

In 2012, North America held the largest market share, and accounted for around 32% of the global GaN semiconductor device market. This can be attributed to the high penetration of GaN based semiconductor products in the field of military, aerospace and defense sector. Asia Pacific GaN semiconductor devices market is expected to be to the fastest growing market in the coming years. This is majorly owing to the advancements in automotive and consumer electronics sector.

The speed of software changes in growing and large scale rapid-paced DevOps environments presents a challenge for continuous testing. Many organizations struggle to get this right. Practices that work for small scale continuous testing may not be sufficient as the requirements grow. In his session at DevOps Summit, Marc Hornbeek, Sr. Solutions Architect of DevOps continuous test solutions at Spirent Communications, explained the best practices of continuous testing at high scale, which is rele...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand. Docker Containers are the next quantum leap - Are they?! Databases always represented an additional set of challenges unique to running workloads requiring a maximum of I/O, network, CPU resources combined with data locality.
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
"A lot of times people will come to us and have a very diverse set of requirements or very customized need and we'll help them to implement it in a fashion that you can't just buy off of the shelf," explained Nick Rose, CTO of Enzu, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
