Cambridge GaN Devices (CGD) is a spin out from the High Voltage Microelectronics and Sensors lab at the University of Cambridge Engineering Department. The lab has a successful track record of commercialising innovation and one of the founders, Florin Udrea, was behind the success of Cambridge CMOS Sensors; a Cambridge spin out in an adjacent technology that was backed by Parkwalk and Cambridge Enterprise to a successful trade sale exit in 2016.
