LitCapital portfolio company Brolis Semiconductors to invest another 1.6 M EUR into expansion of R&D facilities in 2014


Lithuanian Minstry of Economy has approved the EU structural funds support for the expansion of Brolis R&D facility. EU is to cover 46 % of the total project cost. The total budget is estimated around 1.6 M EUR.

The expansion of R&D facility will include additional cleanroom space and will focus towards the development of Brolis long-wavelength laser diode development, with particular emphasis on the reliability and yield optimization.

“We have managed to start-up the fab in less than 9 months from scratch, which we started operating early this year and we already have pilot devices with state-of-the-art performance, including 25% wall-plug efficiency and high-brightness Watt-level CW laser diodes with extremely low input powers. Our goal is to continue innovation, and do everything possible to bring these to market as soon as possible,” says Kristijonas Vizbaras, Brolis CTO.
