Major companies across the world continue adopting GaN (gallium nitride) power transistors into data center power supplies, consumer electronics, electric vehicles, and more. To increase ease-of-use, reduce time-to-market, and accelerate our ongoing innovation, we are pleased to announce the opening of our newest office in Shenzhen, China. Our accelerated growth in Asia—as well as globally—addresses the escalating demand for GaN-powered applications attributable to the economic and sustainability benefits over silicon.
Shenzhen, known as China’s Silicon Valley, recently announced a plan to build “an influential cluster” for the semiconductor industry by 2025, including developing leading national capabilities in manufacturing, packaging, and testing of chips. By 2025, Shenzhen aims to create a semiconductor industry that can bring in 250 billion yuan (US$37.5 billion) in annual sales, compared to the 110 billion yuan in revenue last year. The semiconductor ecosystem in Shenzhen is unique, spanning the comprehensive semiconductor manufacturing supply chain, and serving as a major hub for customers in our key markets.
The addition of our Shenzhen office comes on the heels of the recent opening of our office in Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan—the center of semiconductor innovation and home to many of the world’s leaders in advanced technology. It is also the headquarters of GaN Systems’ foundry partner, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), the world’s most extensive dedicated independent (pure play) semiconductor foundry. The Taiwan office alone has grown by more than 10X since it opened in 2015. Through R&D in the region, we are expanding our product line with high performance products, industry-leading lineup of reference designs for 65W, 100W, 140W and 250W phone and laptop chargers, PFC, DCDC, and inverter designs for higher power data center and automotive markets.
“Our new offices in Taiwan and Shenzhen reflect our continued commitment to delivering GaN-based solutions to our customers and partners—in a region where booming markets including consumer electronics, data centers, and electric vehicles are creating soaring demand for next-generation GaN transistors,” said Stephen Coates, Vice President, Global Operations and General Manager, Asia. “We’ll continue to invest in helping our customers harness the power of GaN for key gains in efficiency/performance, reliability, and sustainability.”
In addition to expansion throughout Asia, we have made similar investments in other regions globally to accelerate GaN adoption with our customers and support more GaN-powered designs. For instance, earlier this year, we announced the growth of our North America presence, with a 3X increase in our Ottawa headquarters operation—in addition to the opening of a design center in Dallas, Texas, and a growing footprint across the US and Europe.
