According to the report, industry insiders interpreted that Delta joined the ranks of third-generation semiconductors as a global power supply leader. Although it only invested NT$320 million in the initial stage to establish a “preparation office”, it was of great significance and highlighted the third-generation semiconductors. The market outlook is highly anticipated by major international manufacturers.
Delta said that it will first establish Ankara Semiconductor to enter the research and development of front-end power technology and third-generation semiconductors, as well as the production and sales of related products. In the future, Delta hopes to master the upstream design, provide key semiconductor components, and then grasp the application trend of third-generation semiconductors, and does not rule out the introduction of semiconductor-related strategic partners.
Delta pointed out that the tentative capital of Anji Semiconductor is NT$400 million, Delta holds 80% of the shares, and the rest of the shares are subscribed by its subsidiary Delta Capital and its founding employees. The key figures at the helm of Ikari Semiconductor are Liu Liangfu, chairman of Delta Capital, and Xing Taigang, former head of Delta’s Advanced Components and Modules Division.
The report pointed out that it is understood that Ankari Semiconductor initially locked 600V power supplies and other products. The outside world is optimistic, because emerging applications such as 5G communications, electric vehicles, and high-power power supplies have increased performance requirements for power components, and Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Silicon Carbide (SiC) still have excellent performance in high temperature and high current environments. In addition, the world has begun to pay attention to the issue of carbon emissions, and gallium nitride and silicon carbide with high energy efficiency and low energy consumption have become new-generation business opportunities for third-generation semiconductors.
