Gallium Arsenide Wafers Benefits Over Silicon

Two benefits of GaAs wafers over Silicon wafers are:

gallium arsenide
  • GaAs moves electrons faster while consuming less power. Think of your cell phone. Tight spaces and short battery life. GaAs provides a real advantage over silicon for some components.
  • GaAs has direct band-gap properties make all-optical buses direct light on-chips more efficiently than wires do on silicon.
