OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada, March 7, 2019 – GaN Systems, the global leader in GaN (gallium nitride) power semiconductors, today announced the availability of its 50 W wireless power amplifier, a small size, low cost, and high efficiency evaluation board ideal for wireless power transfer and charging applications. It is targeted for lower power applications in industrial and consumer markets for items such as power tools, IoT devices, handheld terminals, medical devices and household robots.

This evaluation kit adds to GaN Systems’ solutions that include the 100 W power amplifier and 300 W power amplifier that are designed to support, simplify, and speed up the innovation of wireless power transfer systems. These kits combine GaN Systems power transistors with high frequency GaN E-HEMT drivers from pSemi and are designed to be consistent with AirFuel standards.

“Wireless power is growing, and technologies need to progress quickly to overcome the current technical challenges in the market,” said Paul Wiener, Vice-President, Strategic Marketing for GaN Systems. “In the area of wireless power transfer, designers are demanding solutions with spatial freedom, high power, and high efficiency, which, by definition, requires high frequency GaN-based solutions.”

The 50 W evaluation kit addresses challenges associated with working at high frequency, which provides an easy-to-use baseline for engineers in their system designs.

GaN Systems is displaying its family of wireless power amplifiers and several wireless power implementations at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) in Anaheim, Calif. on March 17-21, 2019.
