About us

AZUR SPACE Solar Power GmbH is a worldwide leading company in the development and production of high efficiency III-V based solar cells for space and terrestrial concentrator applications. Based on more than 50 years of industrial success in Si, GaAs and InP-based semiconductor technology, AZUR SPACE extended its product portfolio with customized optoelectronic devices for light emission, light detection and power transmission with a focus on infrared applications.

The company’s technology capabilities cover the complete value chain from device design and epitaxial growth of device structures through processing and extensive final product characterization. With a large manufacturing capacity and strong R&D and engineering capabilities, we support our customers with innovative III-V based products. AZUR SPACE is ISO9001 certified, was awarded the ISO14001 qualification for environmental protection as well as the OHSAS18001 qualification for occupational health and safety.

Products and services

Based upon our experience on III-V based high-efficiency multi-junction solar cells, AZUR SPACE developed optoelectronic receiver chips with unique features for insulation products (opto-couplers, solid state relays) and laser power converters for the power supply of remote sensors. The chips can be customized regarding illumination wavelength, illumination intensity or required output voltage and are available as bare die or chip-on-wafer.

Further, AZUR SPACE offers a 4” and 6” large-scale epitaxial foundry service for GaAs-based optoelectronic devices. Through our broad knowledge about the growth of GaAs-based compounds on GaAs, Ge or InP substrate, we are able to respond quickly to customer requests. The offered foundry service runs parallel to our large scale solar cell production, uses the established measures for a quality control and benefits from the economies of scope through tool utilization, yield and cost.
Optical receiver chip MP8

Optical receiver chip MP8

AZUR SPACE optical receiver chip MP8. The chip can be implemented into insulation products (opto-couplers, solid state relays) and can operate as isolated MOSFET driver. Through its unique design, it offers an output voltage of 5 V and more. Hence, it can be used for the insulated switching of power FETs even at high temperatures. The chip is available in a standard design or can be adjusted for various customer needs regarding output voltage, output current and chip size.
