See how GaN-based power systems are transforming wireless charging, electric and autonomous vehicles, and consumer products

 

OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada, December 17, 2018 – GaN Systems, the global leader in GaN (gallium nitride) power semiconductors, invites visitors at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to see the latest GaN powered breakthroughs from game-changing companies that are transforming today’s and future automobiles, energy storage systems, wireless charging solutions, and consumer electronics.

The rollout of new electronics and data-intensive technologies increasingly demands significant amounts of power. At the center of 2019 trends is the undeniable need for new ways of thinking about and addressing the power needs of the diverse technology that surrounds us. As we evolve globally, power cannot be taken for granted and simply viewed as an endless resource that comes out of a plug in a wall.

GaN Systems is taking the lead in providing the technology for new power system design approaches. Using GaN power semiconductors will usher in entirely new energy efficient systems and products capable of transforming the future such as bringing about lighter and longer range electric cars, better navigation and sensing in autonomous vehicles, devices without power cords, and more affordable and improved energy storage systems.

GaN semiconductors as a building block for these systems is enabling the creation of new energy efficient systems and products capable of transforming the future that are 4X smaller, 4X lighter, and exhibit 4X less energy loss.
