Soctera is developing the world’s first aluminum nitride-based power amplifier. These amplifiers will allow higher power operation than other material platforms, such as gallium nitride or silicon. Higher power translates to an increase in the distance a wireless signal can travel. This is of value in markets such as base stations and military radar systems. Soctera plans to expand from this initial product and develop the aluminum nitride platform as the future of high-frequency, high-power electronics.
Soctera spun out of an engineering lab at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.
