GaN Systems Honors China Power Supply Society Competition Winners

OTTAWA, ONTARIO, December 1, 2017 – Winners from the annual China Power Supply Association (CPSS) competition were honored at the organization’s annual meeting on November 22, 2017 by sponsor GaN Systems, the global leader of GaN (gallium nitride) power semiconductors, alongside CPSS, China Power Society Science Popularization Committee, and Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics.…

Critical Transient Processes Of Enhancement-Mode Gan HEMTs

In High-Efficiency And High-Reliability Applications Download Now > Wide-bandgap devices, such as silicon-carbide metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) and gallium-nitride high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs), exhibit an excellent figure of merits compared to conventional silicon devices. This paper focuses on 650V/30~60A enhancement-mode GaN HEMTs provided by GaN Systems, analytically models its switching behaviors, summarizes the impact…

Using GaN Transistors in Power Modules

The old way of creating power modules with gallium-nitride power devices was to just substitute GaN devices for silicon equivalents in the module chassis. The resulting modules just didn’t perform up to their potential. As explained by GaN Systems’ Jim Witham in this short video interview conducted by WHWT Media’s Lee Teschler, new module designs…

GaN Systems – GaNpx Packaging Process Flow

GaNpx packaging provides extreme speed and current with: 1) a near chipscale embedded package, 2) high current density & low profile, 3) optimal thermal performance, 4) extremely low inductance, and 5) no wirebonds. GaN Systems makes it easy for designers and systems engineers to adopt gallium nitride solutions.

GaN Systems – Island Technology

The island structure is the core GaN Systems IP. It has the dual advantage of an up to four times reduction in the size and cost of gallium nitride devices, while transferring substantial current from the on-chip metal to a separate carrier. GaN Systems makes it easy for designers and systems engineers to adopt gallium…
