Silicon-Germanium Alloy

Silicon germanium (SiGe) is an alloy that forms very high-speed transistors that can attain switching speeds greater than traditional semiconductors. This enables faster, more efficient devices to be manufactured using smaller, less noisy circuits than conventional silicon conductors. SiGe alloys consume less power, and extending the battery life of hand-held devices allows greater integration of components onto chips.
Lump Typical Analysis

Germanium = 30 %
Silicon = 70%

Typical Applications

Silicon germanium (SiGe) is used as a semiconductor metal in integrated circuits, as a strain-inducing layer for complementary metal-oxide-semiconductors, and as a thermoelectric material for high-temperature applications.
