Odyssey Semiconductor Technologies Announces First Quarter 2022 Results


Successfully accomplished technology development and leadership milestones


ITHACA, N.Y., May 11, 2022 – Odyssey Semiconductor Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: ODII), a semiconductor device company developing innovative high-voltage, vertical power switching components based on proprietary Gallium Nitride (“GaN”) processing technology, today announced its first quarter 2022 results.


CEO Commentary


“During the first quarter, Odyssey completed important technology development milestones which will positively impact 2022. I am excited to have recently joined Odyssey at such an important time in its development as a Company. The team is progressing towards its goal to scale vertical GaN at high volume for high-performance, high-power conversion in key applications like electric vehicles, renewable energy, and industrial motors at lower price points than SiC or lateral GaN can deliver,” said Mark Davidson, Odyssey’s Chief Executive Officer.


“We continue to receive requests for our 1200 volt vertical GaN FETs from U.S. and European automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, and a large high voltage industrial motor manufacturing. We are on-track to deliver 1200 volt vertical GaN engineering samples to customers in 2022,” continued Davidson.


Accomplished Technology Development and Leadership Milestones Recently


Odyssey has now validated its approach to a vertical 700 volt transistor while the Company is extending the architecture to the next milestone of a vertical 1200 volt rating. The existing devices will provide industry-leading efficiency with remarkably low on-resistance at high switching frequencies for reduced solution size.
New U.S. Patent has been issued for Odyssey’s vertical GaN technology. Our patent is one of many that will help protect Odyssey's key aspects on our vertical GaN devices.
Appointed Mark Davidson as Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Davidson is an experienced growth leader.
