WIN Semiconductors has developed a GaAs PIN diode MMIC process for high frequency switch and limiter applications. The 3 µm i-layer PIN diodes have near constant junction capacitance through 50 GHz, low insertion loss and excellent isolation for high frequency switch applications.
WIN Semiconductors’ net revenue during the first two months of 2017 was NT$2,089 million (approximately $68 million), which was down 3.9 percent below the same period in 2016. WIN's previous guidance was for Q1 revenue to be flat with Q4 and gross margin better than the 30 percent achieved in Q4.
WIN Semiconductors reported a soft December quarter (Q4), reflecting the seasonality of the mobile phone market. However, revenue for the full year grew 13 percent. Q4 margins declined from a drop in capacity utilization and a decline in the value of gold inventory, reflecting the drop in gold prices.
WIN Semiconductors dropped its fiscal Q3 revenue outlook to a low single-digit decline from Q2, compared to the previous outlook of a single-digit increase. August revenue was NT$ 1.2 billion ($38 million), a 24 percent increase from the prior year and down 1.7 percent from the prior quarter.
WIN Semiconductors Corp., the world’s largest pure-play compound semiconductor foundry, announced the expansion of its market leading technology portfolio with the addition of a high voltage integrated passive device process. The IP3M process is a flexible passive circuit platform that provides three metal interconnect layers and high breakdown voltage capacitors needed to support reliable operation at 50 volts.
WIN Semiconductors Corp., the world’s largest pure-play compound semiconductor foundry, announced that it has surpassed 1 million cumulative wafer shipments to customers in the mobile PA, Wi-Fi, wireless infrastructure and optical markets.
