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) standardsâ•¤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.
