  • Completed 650 and 1200 volt vertical GaN sample fabrication as planned in Q4 2022
  • On track to ship GaN product samples to customers in Q1 2023
  • Expecting product development agreements with customers by the end of Q2 2023

ITHACA, NY / ACCESSWIRE / February 7, 2023 / Odyssey Semiconductor Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB:ODII), a semiconductor device company developing innovative high-voltage power switching components based on proprietary Gallium Nitride ('GaN') processing technology, today reported its fourth quarter and full year 2022 results.

CEO Commentary

'2022 was a pivotal year for Odyssey. It marked the year our GaN technology moved out of the lab. We are now building high-voltage vertical GaN products that customers are excited to evaluate. We completed 650 and 1200 volt vertical GaN sample fabrication as planned in Q4 2022, and now samples are being prepared for shipment to customers later this quarter. We expect to secure product development agreements with customers by the end of Q2 2023,' said Mark Davidson, Odyssey's Chief Executive Officer. 'The quality of conversations I've personally had with customers reinforces our confidence that we're developing something valuable for many applications in our target markets. We remain focused on executing our commercialization roadmap.'

We are continuing to take product sample requests. Customers can request information and samples of the 650 and 1200 volt vertical GaN power devices at

Significant Recent Advancements and Milestones

  • Completed 650 and 1200 volt vertical GaN sample fabrication as planned in Q4 2022 utilizing Odyssey's industry leading vertical GaN intellectual property.
  • Shipments of vertical GaN product samples to secured customers commencing in Q1 2023.
  • Product development agreements with customers are expected by the end of Q2 2023.
  • Pursuing $2 million pipeline value for foundry services as the Company continues to pursue new opportunities in foundry services.
  • Secured an additional $2.35 million in funding executed on December 28, 2022.
  • Positioning the Company to receive funding through the CHIPS and Science Act.

Odyssey Uniquely Positioned in High Growth Megatrend Movement to High Voltage.
40% CAGR to 2027 in Odyssey's Addressable Market

Odyssey's approach to vertical GaN will offer even greater commercial advantages over silicon than silicon carbide or lateral GaN. Vertical GaN offers a 10x advantage over silicon carbide (SiC) at performance and cost levels unattainable by the competing technologies.

The market the Company is pursuing is large and fast growing. The 650 volt segment is the larger market today, expected to grow at a 20% compound annual growth rate. The 1200 volt product market segment is expected to grow faster at 63% CAGR and will become the larger market in the second half of this decade. Together, the 650 and 1200 volt power device market is expected to exceed $5 billion in 2027, a 40% combined CAGR according to Yole Group, a French market research firm.
