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 48V, 12 kW motor drive compared with a silicon-based solution. By designing their system with GaN transistors EGTRONICS they were able to reduced its size 80% and its weight 70%.
