Microwave and Millimeter Wave Vacuum Electron Devices

Purchase

This report examines the microwave and millimeter wave high-power vacuum electron device market and the extent to which emerging gallium nitride (GaN) devices may affect that business now and in the future. Microwave and millimeter wave VEDs have been in existence since World War II but this marketplace has been overlooked to a great extent in favor of more fashionable technologies. Nevertheless, without these devices many defense systems, space communications, energy research, medical electronics systems, and even the lowly microwave oven wouldn’t exist. The basic technology for these VEDs is based on the vacuum tube that was invented at the turn of the 20th century but this critical market is much larger than one would think and for the first time high performance GaN semiconductor devices are poised to grab a piece of it.

This report details microwave and millimeter wave vacuum electron device revenue by device type. Revenue is presented for the period 2014 to 2019. In addition, the study reports actual revenues and vendor market share for 2013 and market share by device type for 2013 and 2019. The market penetration rate of gallium nitride RF power semiconductor devices is also evaluated as a percentage of TWT TAM and overall microwave and millimeter wave VED TAM.
