Power Electronics Industry To Demonstrate How GaN Has Transformed Their Products At APEC 2018

OTTAWA, Ontario, Canada, February 15, 2018 – GaN Systems, the global leader in GaN power semiconductors, today announced its comprehensive lineup for the Applied Power Electronics Conference & Exposition (APEC) conference in San Antonio, Texas being held March 4-8, 2018

The company will showcase breakthrough GaN power transistor power levels and form factors. GaN Systems will also provide customer and application demonstrations showing how GaN is solving the power challenges of today’s most demanding industries, including consumer electronics, data centers, automotive, renewable energy, and industrial. Furthermore, GaN Systems’ experts will be presenting at several sessions illustrating how previously unattainable system performance is now a reality in many power-reliant industries.


At APEC, GaN Systems will announce an expansion of the company’s award-winning GaN power transistors with new products focused on industrial, automotive, and renewable energy applications. For the consumer and data center applications, several integrated half-bridge with driver solutions will be highlighted. Additionally, GaN Systems will demonstrate new design tools including several evaluation boards such as the newly launched Insulated Metal Substrate (IMS) Evaluation Platform, which provides a flexible, low cost, high power development platform for high-efficiency power systems with 3kW or higher applications.

GaN Systems’ award-winning GaN power transistors are today’s building blocks of change for the design of a new generation of smaller, lower cost, and more efficient power systems free from the limitations of yesterday’s silicon-based solutions. Attendees can learn how its being done at several GaN Systems sessions.
