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.

Customers can request samples of the 650 and 1200 volt vertical GaN power devices at info@odysseysemi.com.
