Every electric vehicle needs an On-Board Charger (OBC) to convert AC power from the wall receptacle into the DC power that charges the battery. Using GaN Systems’ power semiconductors results in OBCs that are lighter and approximately one-third current size. This contributes both to a decreased vehicle weight (giving longer driving range) as well as opening up new design flexibility with OBC integration.
