MEDIA ADVISORY: Opening of new $6 million semiconductor manufacturing facility at BluGlass, Sydney

Media are invited to the opening of BluGlass’ new state-of-the-art semiconductor manufacturing facility on 26 August 2019, in Silverwater, Sydney.

The new facility represents an investment of $6 million in specialised semiconductor manufacturing systems and associated infrastructure, and is part of the company’s continuing strategy to address the US$50 billion global LED market (source: Allied Market Research, projected growth to 2024). More information on BluGlass’ strategy can be found in the company’s May update to market.

BluGlass (ASX:BLG) continues to develop and commercialise its patented remote plasma chemical vapour deposition (RPCVD) semiconductor manufacturing technology, a revolutionary process for manufacturing semiconductors at the heart of millions of electronic devices.

These include LEDs for automotive and overhead lighting, microLEDs for wearable and virtual reality displays, power electronics for power conversion, and concentrated solar cells for utility-scale solar power.

BluGlass operates globally, and this new facility is a worldwide centre of excellence for semiconductor manufacturing R&D.

BluGlass chairman William Johnson, Managing Director and CEO Giles Bourne, and CTO Ian Mann will update the market on the company’s plans for the facility and how it will be deployed to address the global specialist optoelectronic device market.

About BluGlass: BluGlass Limited (ASX: BLG) is a global leader commercialising breakthrough Remote Plasma Chemical Vapour Deposition (RPCVD) silicon wafer manufacturing technology. BluGlass has invented a new process using RPCVD to grow advanced materials such as gallium nitride (GaN) and indium gallium nitride (InGaN). These materials are crucial to the production of high-efficiency devices such as power electronics applications, and light emitting diodes (LEDs) used in next-generation vehicle lighting, virtual reality systems and device backlighting.

The RPCVD technology, because of its low temperature and flexible nature, offers many potential benefits over existing technologies including higher efficiency, lower cost, substrate flexibility (including GaN on silicon) and scalability.
