Gallium nitride (GaN)
A wide band gap semiconductor that features an advantage in that it features strong resistance to voltage breakdown, compared to conventional semiconductor materials such as silicon (Si) or gallium arsenide (GaAs).
 High electron-mobility transistor (HEMT)
A type of field-effect transistor that utilizes the characteristic that, electrons located in the junction of two different bandgap materials move at higher speeds compared to electrons located in ordinary doped semiconductors. Fujitsu pioneered these transistors by developing the world's first HEMT in 1980. Currently, HEMTs are used in a wide range of infrastructure technologies such as satellite broadcasting receivers, mobile phones, global positioning system (GPS) navigation systems, and broadband wireless access systems.
Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, a collective term for wireless interface devices - embedded in notebook PCs or handheld terminals - that meet the standards IEEE802.16 and IEEE802.16e for wireless interfaces. The WiMAX Forum certifies WiMAX-related hardware and networks.
