Gallium nitride (GaN)
GaN-based semiconductors are wide bandgap semiconductors that feature a higher breakdown-voltage (threshold) than conventional semiconductor materials, such as silicon (Si) or gallium arsenide (GaAs).
 High electron mobility transistor (HEMT)
A field-effect transistor that utilizes the electron movement at the junction between two semiconductors with different bandgaps—as electron mobility in HEMTs is faster than that of conventional semiconductors. Fujitsu led the industry with its development of HEMT technology in 1980, and HEMTs, as a core technology underpinning the network-based society, are currently used in a wide range of core technologies for IT applications, including satellite transceivers, mobile phones, GPS-based navigations systems, and broadband wireless networking systems.
