May 14, 2012 - PRLog -- CHICAGO, IL -  Earlier today AKHAN Technologies, Inc., the leader in advanced diamond electron device design, released a third-party semiconductor process finding conducted by Folium Technologies’ Dr. Abe Ghanbari, entitled “Technology and Process Transfer to High Volume Manufacturing AKHAN Negative Electron Affinity Diamond Platform”.  The report reviews the AKHAN Tech process and equipment set in comparison to the standards implemented by mainstream electronic device manufacturers in the semiconductor industry today such as IBM, Intel, & Samsung, among a host of others globally.  

“…As a result of this innovation, the company has overcome conventional limits on semiconducting circuits and will be able to pursue the next generation of electronics based on Miraj platform at low cost… In addition, the transition to 200mm and 300mm wafers in the past two decades has paved the way for the introduction of the upgraded models to be readily available in either pilot or HVM production lines around the world at several foundries and internally captive fabs such as IBM, Intel, Samsung, etc…With the completion of the technology development phase, the emphasis has shifted to establish initial wafer-scale device performance benchmarks, reliability, and preparation of process kit using commercially available equipment with ≥ 150mm wafer capability. We believe the Miraj platform process and equipment set are easily transferred to commercial and custom foundries pilot and production lines for HVM [High Volume Manufacturing].” -Excerpt from "Technology and Process Transfer to High Volume Manufacturing, AKHAN Negative Electron Affinity Diamond Platform"

Further, concluding aspects of the report include an immediate competitiveness in the Analog & Power Semiconductor Markets, with future enhanced competitiveness in the CPU, memory, and ancillary logic markets upon resolution of the large area wafer supply issue in the commercial diamond market.  Recently, leading semiconductor analyst firms such as International Business Strategies, Inc. (IBS) have identified these segments of the global IC market as well positioned for high growth through 2015, with the Analog IC Market subset expected at $50 billion globally* .  The abridged version of the report is presently available on the company’s website (, with the full report available by request.
