The “Zelenograd” Nanotechnology Center (ZNTC) will open the first experimental line in Russia for the production of transistor crystals based on gallium nitride in the “Technopolis Moscow” special economic zone, according to the portal of the mayor and the government of the capital.
It is specified that gallium nitride is one of the most popular and promising materials for modern electronics. It is used in the production of power supplies, modules of 5G communication systems, equipment for servers and data centers, and wireless charging stations for electric vehicles.
“ZNTC plans to start small-scale production of gallium nitride microelectronics using basic technologies in 2023,” the Head of the city Department of Investment and Industrial Policy, Vladislav Ovchinsky, said.
As noted, ZNTC has already completed the construction and commissioned a site for experimental production. About 1 billion rubles were invested in the project.
