Startup to commercialise diamond-based high power diode IP
UK statupp Evince Technology has raised £750,00 ($1m) to commercialise its diamond-based power IP.

With these solid-state nano-scale electron emitters (vacuum-free) fully embedded, the company is developing a new family of devices including a diode, an embedded Field Emission Triode (EFET), and a Bidirectional Switch (BIFET).

Dr Gareth Taylor, CEO of Evince with one of
the processing tools being developed by the
company specifically for its diamond devices.

When questioned about where Evince stands in terms of IP development, CEO Gareth Taylor answered: "The team has proven the basis of its synthetic diamond-based semiconductor technology with the simplest device they can make which is a diode.  Now that the development team knows the principles are right, they are working towards making diodes that are closer to real world performance, and from there will develop more sophisticated versions of the device. The beauty of Evince’s core technology is that it’s scalable: so the approach being taken for diodes is the basis on which to make triodes and other devices in future. Whereas one of the challenges with some other wide bandgap materials is that companies have focused on making for example Schottky diodes, but there is no extrapolation from a Schottky to making a FET device".

The company is open to work with partners to define products and target applications, then licence its patented synthetic diamond processing technologies to their semiconductor manufacturing partners.
