簡介

射頻氮化鎵(RF GaN)

RF GaN市場在軍事以及通訊應用的推動下正在快速成長,例如5G基礎設施的出現,RF GaN市場的相關企業具有巨大發展的可能性。隨著RF GaN市場的成長,Knowmade見證許多新興企業進入RF GaN專利領域,幾家主要公司(富士通/東芝)加強了智慧財產權地位,並挑戰了成熟的智慧財產權參與者(Cree/Wolfspeed/住友電工)此外,GaN-on-SiC技術在目前的GaN RF設備市場中具有優勢,不過在通訊市場中,不久的將來會跟改善性能和可靠性的GaN-on-Si技術展開競爭。

此服務可以鎖定新進入RF GaN競爭格局中的企業,並且追蹤主要企業的智慧財產權相關活動,包括價值鏈(磊晶晶圓,設備,MMIC等),技術(GaN-on-Si),技術挑戰(熱管理,電流崩潰)。此外,此服務可以提供最近剛過期或是被放棄的專利藉以衍生出新商機,以及RF GaN技術領域中最近的專利訴訟報告。

功率氮化鎵

功率氮化鎵市場中存在許多機會,特別是電源和電動車應用(無線充電,快速充電)領域,在未來幾年可能會急速成長。此外,在這個市場上,許多依靠X-Fab或TSMC等代工服務的無晶圓廠或精簡型初創企業(EPC/Navitas等)與主要的半導體公司(X-Fab or TSMC)競爭,在系統級別(E模式或D模式設備,SiP或SoC等)提供具有成本效益且易於使用的GaN技術解決方案,目的在加快在電源應用中採用GaN技術。

此服務讓您能夠定期掌握大企業的智慧財產權活動以及以下領域的新創公司,包括功率IC的集成(封裝跟晶片)以及功能化的級別,技術(E模式,垂直設備),技術挑戰(熱問題,動態電阻)。此外,此服務能夠早期發現功率氮化鎵領域的新參與企業,並確認智慧財產權企業之間的合作及專利轉讓。

RF GaN

The RF GaN market is growing fast - driven by military and telecom applications - and there is still a huge potential to develop for RF GaN market players with the advent of 5G infrastructure for instance. With RF GaN market ramping up, Knowmade have seen many new players entering the RF GaN patent landscape and several major companies (Fujitsu, Toshiba) strengthening their IP position and challenging well-established IP players (Cree/Wolfspeed, Sumitomo Electric). Furthermore GaN-on-SiC technology has been so far the predominant technology in GaN RF devices market. However in the near future GaN-on-SiC technology will have to compete with GaN-on-Si especially in the telecom market as performance and reliability of this technology keep improving.

In this context, the patent monitoring service allows to identify new entrants in RF GaN competitive landscape and track the IP activity of major players according to the value chain (epiwafer, device, MMIC, etc.), the technology (GaN-on-Si) and technological challenges (thermal management, current collapse). Furthermore, the patent monitoring service provides information about recently expired or abandoned patents which may create new business opportunities and reports recent patent litigations in the field of RF GaN technology.

Power GaN

Power GaN market may suddenly take off in the next years as many opportunities exist for this technology especially in power supply and EV applications (wireless charging, fast charging). Furthermore, in this market, numerous fabless or fab-lite start-ups (EPC, Navitas, etc.) relying on foundry services such as X-Fab or TSMC compete with major semiconductor companies (Infineon, STMicroelectronics) in order to find the most cost-effective and easy-to-use solution for GaN technology at the system level (E-mode or D-mode devices, SiP or SoC, etc.) and thereby aiming at accelerating the adoption of GaN technology for power applications.

In this context, the patent monitoring service gives periodic insights on the IP activity of start-up & big companies, according to the level of integration (package or chip) and functionalization of power IC, the technology (E-mode, vertical devices) and technological challenges (thermal issues, dynamic on-resistance). Furthermore, the patent monitoring service allows to early detect newcomers in the field of power GaN, and details the IP collaborations and transfer of rights between IP players.

Benefits of the patent monitoring service

Keep a watch on your competitors' IP activities and their future intentions.

With the help of the patent monitoring service, you will be aware of your competitors' current patenting activities, their IP dynamics, patent transfers including acquisitions and licenses, patent litigation, technology development and R&D strategies. You will also be able to early detect new entrants in your business area.

Keep track of the latest technology developments and be ahead of technology trends.

By keeping note of any recent patent filings, you can track the newest innovations in the field. You will get details on claimed inventions and you can follow technology developments. New technical solutions could inspire and improve your R&D activity.

Prevent registration of IP rights that may be harmful to your business.

You will obtain information on patent applications filed even before exclusive rights have been granted and you can react in time to prevent registration of IP rights that may be harmful to your business.

React in time to infringements and mitigate legal risks.

Monitoring newly-issued patents allows you to regularly assess your freedom-to-operate, ensuring your products or processes are not covered patents and thus they can be manufactured, sold or used safely without infringing valid IP rights owned by others.

Take advantage of free technologies and decrease R&D project risks.

By tracking both expired patents and abandoned patents, you will be able to identify inventions entering the public domain that you can use safely for your development.

Understand the current IP trends and IP strategy of competitors

On a quarterly basis, the report will provide the IP trends over the three last months, with a close look to key IP players and key patented technologies. Main patent applicants and their inventions, blocking patents, promising patents and key patents newly expired or abandoned will be highlighted.
