Company Profile

The Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult’s purpose is to deliver long-term benefits to the UK economy and accelerate UK economic growth in industries where applying Compound Semiconductors creates a competitive advantage enabling new products or end markets. Our strategy is to drive economic growth by helping UK companies to accelerate the use of compound semiconductors in their products.

We will achieve this by:

  • developing an innovation centre that offers capabilities and laboratory facilities required by industry to accelerate the development of new products
  • developing, offering and collaborating on evaluation modules for companies to rapidly explore new compound semiconductor technologies, enabling them to enhance their product range and target new markets stimulating demand across the UK supply chain through challenge-led programmes, which will help a number of prioritised industry sectors apply compound semiconductor technologies in their roadmaps out to 2025 and beyond.
