Selected Topics-0014_Analysis on Current Development of Global InP Industry
Components adopted with InP, a compound semiconductor material, are higher in drift velocity for saturation electrons, stronger in radiation resistance, better in thermal conductivity, higher in photoelectric conversion efficiency, and higher in band gap. They are thus more promising in applications of optical communication, data centers, new-gen displays, AI, unmanned driving, and aerospace.
InP materials are primarily used for the production of photonic components and microwave RF components. They are capable of emitting and detecting photons at 1,000m and above wavelengths, as well as high-speed and low-noise high frequency RF applications. This report provides an analysis on the photonic component market that is most concatenated with InP.

Today, using smartphones to take photos has become a popular way for people to record and share everyday memories. Camera performance has also become an important factor for consumers when deciding to purchase a new smartphone. However, unlike traditional digital single-lens reflex cameras (DSLRs), smartphones are designed to be lightweight and slim. Therefore, adopting a larger CMOS image sensor (CIS) or a heavier lens assembly to improve photoshoot is not practical. To overcome this physical limitation, advanced image signal processors (ISPs) and innovative computational photography algorithms are used to significantly enhance the imaging quality of smartphone cameras. These solutions can effectively compensate for the shortcoming of not being able to incorporate larger optical components into a smartphone camera.
