Odyssey Semiconductor Technologies Reports First Quarter 2023 Financial Results

  • Product samples were delivered to customers as planned; results validate the leadership performance expected from vertical GaN power devices vs. competing technologies
  • Product development agreements with lead customers underway with signed agreements expected in Q2 2023

ITHACA, NY / ACCESSWIRE / May 10, 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 first quarter 2023 results.

CEO Commentary

"Our aggressive goal to deliver vertical GaN product samples in Q1 was accomplished. Now that we've delivered product samples to lead customers, in Q2 we're focused on delivering samples to additional customers and signing product development agreements with customers, which will lead to large-scale commercialization," said Mark Davidson, Odyssey's Chief Executive Officer.

"We are actively engaged in multiple product definition conversations with leading EV automotive customers, as well as industrial motor and renewable energy customers. Lead customers have collaborated along the way and have validated the performance metrics expected from vertical GaN for power applications. There is no doubt that these products will be successful in the market," concluded Davidson.

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 info@odysseysemi.com.

Significant Recent Advancements and Milestones

  • Vertical GaN product samples were delivered to customers in Q1 2023 as planned; results validate the leadership performance expected from vertical GaN power devices vs. competing technologies.
  • Product development agreements with lead customers underway with signed agreements expected in Q2 2023
  • Converting $2 million pipeline for foundry services to new business as the Company continues to pursue new opportunities.

Odyssey Uniquely Positioned in High Growth Megatrend Movement to High Voltage.

40% CAGR to 2027 in Odyssey's Addressable Market

With industry-leading innovation, 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 enabling smaller and lighter power systems 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.
