GaN Transistors Unleash Wireless Power Transfer (WPT)

In this episode of PSDtv, originally recorded by Alix Paultre,  CEO Jim Witham takes us through GaN Systems’ booth at electronica 2016, held in Munich, Germany this past November. Mr. Witham describes our latest advances and shows examples of how customers are using our latest GaN transistor products in their power systems. Watch on YouTube…

Ricardo Discusses Using GaN Transistors in Automotive Systems

The auto industry is poised to begin a shift from silicon chips to smaller and more efficient “wide-bandgap” semiconductors made with gallium nitride, says Karina Morley, Ricardo’s commercial director, Automotive. These advanced chips will be 20%-50% smaller than the silicon semiconductors they replace. That will enable far more compact electronic control modules. Gallium nitride chips…

CE+T Power – The Little Box Challenge Adventure

In this video the CE+T team describes the challenges they confronted and how they used GaN Systems transistors to develop the inverter that won Google and IEEE Little Box Challenge.

EGTRONICS 48V, 12 kW Inverter

Hey, Teschler, EGTRONICS Shrunk the Inverter! GaN transistors are here, they’re now and they’re proliferating in production designs. As just one example, in this video which was filmed at APEC 2016, GaN Systems’ President, Girvan Patterson, describes to Design World / EEWorld’s Lee Teschler the impact that GaN transistors have had on EGTRONICS’ production model…

Getting started with the GS66508T-EVBHB 650 V half bridge evaluation board

GaN Systems’ Di Chen explains how to test 650 V GaN transistors for your application. Our eval board is easily configured into any half-bridge-based topology, including synchronous boost and buck conversion modes, as well as pulsed switching to evaluate transistor waveforms.

GaN Systems Helps CE+T Win Google’s Little Box Challenge

That GaN transistors outperform silicon-based solutions has never been more convincingly demonstrated than by CE+T’s Red Electrical Devils, who won first place in Google’s Little Box Challenge. At APEC 2016, Girvan Patterson, President of GaN Systems, describes to Design World / EEWorld’s Lee Teschler CE+T’s winning design of an uber-compact inverter using GaN transistors. The…

PSDtv – GaN Systems Shows Significant Size and Power Density Gains

G-Philos 700W GaN-based ESS is 30% smaller, 25% less power consumption than silicon version GaN Systems President Girvan Patterson describes a 1 kV energy storage system (ESS) from Korean-based customer G-Philos that stores solar-generated power and returns unconsumed power to the grid. The GaN-based design uses both 650 V and 100 V transistors, is up…

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…

How Gallium Nitride Benefits Everyone

Gallium nitride transistors increase efficiency, lower power consumption and reduce system size and weight. GaN Systems is the first place system designers go to realize those benefits.
