UltimateGaN receives futurezone Award 2019

The European research project "UltimateGaN" was rewarded with the futurezone Award 2019 "5G Innovation of the Year" on 21 November 2019.

For the first time, a prize for 5G Innovation of the year was given at the futurezone Awards 2019. The first winner in this category is the European research project "UltimateGaN", which was launched in May 2019 with Infineon Austria taking the lead role.

UltimateGaN: Energy-saving chips made from new materials as a turbo for renewable energy and CO2 savings

Over the next three years, 26 partners from nine countries will conduct research on the next generation of energy-saving chips based on the new semiconductor material gallium nitride (GaN). The objective is to make these power semiconductors available for a wide variety of applications at globally competitive cost levels. This also means the project will make an important contribution to increasing energy efficiency and decreasing CO2. Its volume of 48 million euros makes UltimateGaN one of the largest European research projects.
