About HexaTech

Established in 2001, HexaTech, Inc. is a recognized world leader in the development and commercialization of the next-generation semiconductor material, aluminum nitride (AlN). This wide bandgap semiconductor offers unique properties which enable the fabrication of first-in-kind devices, including long life ultraviolet (UV-C) light emitting diodes (LEDs) for disinfection applications, deep UV lasers for biological threat detection, high voltage switching devices for efficient power conversion, and radio frequency (RF) components for satellite communications.

High-performance III-nitride semiconductor devices, comprised of alloys of (Al, In, Ga)N, currently face a crucial challenge in terms of achievable device quality. Fabricating these devices on lattice-matched, highly thermally conducting, single crystalline AlN wafers enables sophisticated, next-generation III-nitride based devices with vastly superior performance and device lifetimes.

HexaTech has developed a proprietary crystal growth process that yields the world's highest quality single crystalline AlN boules, ideally suited for the fabrication of AlN substrates.

By producing material with 10,000 to 1,000,000 times fewer defects than competing technologies, HexaTech's AlN substrates enable breakthrough performance in the fabrication of high Al content AlGaN and other III-N based devices.

In March 2020, Stanley Electric Co., Ltd., a leading automobile lamp manufacturer in Japan, acquired HexaTech, which now operates as a Stanley Electric Group company.
