e2v is now the global provider of GaN Systems’ power transistors for Aerospace and Defense (A&D) applications
OTTAWA, Ontario and Milpitas, CA – September 27, 2016 – A master supply agreement between e2v, the global leader in the high reliability (hi-rel) semiconductor market, and GaN Systems, the leading manufacturer of gallium nitride power transistors, establishes e2v as the global supplier of GaN Systems’ 100V and 650V hi-rel GaN transistor products and customer care for the A&D market.
e2v will utilize its infrastructure and 30 years of experience in this area to support the hi-rel market with GaN’s best-in-class and most reliable transistors and evaluation boards. e2v will offer state-of-the-art power management solutions that respond directly to the hi-rel market’s growing SWaP (Size, Weight and Power) demands.
Mont Taylor, Vice President of Business Development at e2v, commented, “Our A&D customers must increase system power density, while reducing size and weight. This global partnership with GaN Systems allows us to extend our A&D portfolio and offer new power technologies to meet these requirements.”
Larry Spaziani, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at GaN Systems, said, “Power designers are routinely reducing the volume and weight of their systems by 4 to 6 times by using GaN transistors as a replacement for silicon devices. Partnering with e2v enables our solutions to reach, supply and support hundreds of A&D electronic systems designers. e2v’s heritage within the A&D market will allow us to extend the availability of our SWaP conscious power solutions and give our A&D customers the specialist support they deserve.”
