Flosfia Ltd. (Tokyo, Japan) has said it plans to start mass production of corundum-structured gallium oxide (α-Ga2O3) power semiconductor devices for automotive applications before the end of 2022.

Flosfia was founded as a spin-off from Kyoto University in 2011 and claims its technology can improve the performance of electric vehicles when compared to silicon-carbide power devices.

The company is backed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Denso and the Development Bank of Japan.

Flosfia claims these gallium oxide devices can reduce EV power consumption and increase the cruising range by about 10 percent compared with silicon carbide power devices.

Flosfia is a fabless chip company and is looking to Japanese foundries to make several hundred thousand devices a month by summer 2023.
