Kyma Technologies announces custom crystal fabrication facility and services

Oct. 5, 2009
Date Announced: 05 Oct 2009 Raleigh, NC -– Kyma Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of ultra-high purity crystalline gallium nitride (GaN) and aluminum nitride (AlN) materials and related products and services, today announced that it has completed its custom crystal fabrication facility and is ready to perform services for interested parties.Kyma’s new fabrication capability leverages its recent acquisition of select assets including custom sawing and grinding and crystal alignment equipment from Caracal of North Carolina. This equipment set is currently dedicated solely to custom fabrication work and represents a significant addition to Kyma’s growing crystal fabrication capabilities. The Caracal equipment was acquired early in 2009 and was fully installed this past summer. Kyma engineers have now completed testing and calibration and have begun accepting new custom fabrication projects.Kyma also offers custom computer aided design (CAD) capabilities that can stand alone or be combined with the custom fabrication service in the form of a concise report complete with pictures and drawings. This enables customers to receive pictures and professional drawings of their product along with the fabrication service. Customers enjoy the before, during, and after drawings showing how an intermediate product is transformed into a finished and/or shaped product. The electronic report is useful for customers to use in their own reports, for example, for government sponsored R&D projects.Kyma’s custom fabrication services should be especially useful for development stage companies involved in low volume crystal fabrication. Kyma’s expertise is very strong in hard crystals like GaN, AlN, sapphire, and SiC, but many other crystals can be fabricated as well.Interested parties are invited to contact Kyma to discuss their specific needs (see below).About Kyma TechnologiesKyma is a leading supplier of crystalline gallium nitride (GaN) and aluminum nitride (AlN) materials for a broad range of high performance nitride semiconductor device applications.The market for nitride semiconductor devices is expected to surpass $9B by 2010.
