Transphorm Introduces Silicon Valley Centre

San Jose-based customer centre supports high speed, high voltage GaN power systems development

Power GaN firm Transphorm has officially introduced its Silicon Valley Centre of Excellence. Established over the past year, the Centre is Transphorm's customer support initiative for high-voltage-GaN-based power application development. The Centre's mission is to educate and support customers developing with high voltage GaN.

The Centre will also build out a technical library consisting of application notes, white papers and open-source reference designs. To that end, a reference design suite for targeted markets (automotive, data center, servo/motor, renewables) is slated as the next release on the Centre's product roadmap.

Products and services released from the Centre fall under four primary focus areas: Design Tools, Education, Support, Technical Library. Further, these products and services will reinforce Transphorm's commitment to high Quality + Reliability (Q+R) standards╤enabling customers to build with and maintain confidence in high voltage GaN technology.

"We've added over 150 man-years of power management design experience and, with that, the ability to optimise solutions for performance, system cost and manufacturability," said Mike White, senior VP, sales and marketing at Transphorm. "Our objective is to be the trusted advisor; we are educating the market on how to design with GaN technology. And, we're taking a hands-on approach to helping our customers solve their most challenging issues."

Located in San Jose, Calif., the Centre has regional team members worldwide. The staff comprises experienced power supply design engineers and technical marketers with backgrounds in magnetics, noise control, PCB design, Q+R testing, tool development, topologies and other relevant subjects.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
