Showa Denko K.K. (SDK) has developed a six-inch (150mm) InP semi-insulating monocrystal mirror wafers at its Chichibu Plant in Saitama, Japan.

SDK expects the semi-insulating InP mirror wafer to become the mainstream material for photodiodes used in a high-speed communications system with a transmission speed of 40Gbps or higher. The demand for InP is also anticipated to grow for use in the next-generation mobile phones, the company added.

SDK is currently supplying 4-inch InP wafers to customers in local and international markets, with a monthly capacity of 500 units.
