Odyssey Semiconductor Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: ODII) Provides Preliminary Full Year 2020 Financial Results After Listing as a Publicly Traded Company 


ITHACA, NY -- March 19, 2021  --  Odyssey Semiconductor Technologies, Inc. (“Odyssey”, “Odyssey Semiconductor”, or “ the Company”), a semiconductor device company developing innovative high-voltage power switching components based on proprietary Gallium Nitride (GaN) processing technology, today announced preliminary, unaudited financial results for the year ended December 31, 2020. Revenues for fiscal year 2020 are expected to be $1.374 million.


Recent Business Highlights

  • Began trading on the OTCQB Venture Market (the “OTCQB”) under ticker ODII as of August 27, 2020
  • Developed new GaN processing technology to produce high-voltage power switching devices that will break down long-standing performance barriers for high-power and high-voltage applications such as electric vehicles (EVs), renewable energy production, power grids and industrial motors.  
  • A team of engineers at Cornell University has been studying other potential applications of GaN devices from Odyssey Semiconductor, including the concept of On-the-Go Charging for electric transportation. 

“The semiconductor device industry has been under pressure to deliver much needed efficiency gains for modern high-power and high-voltage applications that are currently hampered by the limitations of SiC and Si power transistors,” said Alex Behfar, Chairman and CEO of Odyssey Semiconductor. “Odyssey has developed a proprietary GaN process that, for the first time, will make production of GaN based vertical-conduction devices commercially viable. With the entire world focused on increasing adoption of clean energy and electric power, we’re excited about the potential for our technology to propel these industries forward.”

The premium power switching device market, which is described as applications where Si based systems perform insufficiently, is projected to reach over $3.5 billion by 2025.
