Voltaix is the world’s leading producer of germane, diborane, trisilane, and trimethyl boron - specialty chemicals that enhance the performance and manufacturability of semiconductors and photovoltaics. Voltaix chemicals enable logic chips to compute more quickly and solar cells to absorb a broader portion of the solar spectrum, and they improve manufacturability by minimizing defect formation and increasing machine throughput.
Utilizing exceptional expertise in silicon, germanium and boron chemistry, our products are custom designed for the most demanding applications, including:
- Advanced DRAM computer memory
- Silicon Germanium (SiGe) transistors for wireless communications chips
- Strained silicon for high speed logic computer chips (CPUs)
- Copper enabling low-K dielectrics for computer chips
- High efficiency thin film silicon solar cells
We use proprietary synthesis, purification, and packaging technology developed in-house. We
also design and build our own equipment for use in our manufacturing operations. The company, founded in 1986 and privately held, currently employs approximately 100 people at its sites in North Branch, NJ and High Springs, FL. Voltaix investors include Intel Capital and Novus Energy Partners.
