Navitas to exhibit GaNFast Power ICs


Smallest, lightest and fastest-charging power systems to feature at APEC 2018

Navitas Semiconductor will demonstrate its GaN power IC technology at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) March 4-8 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Centre, San Antonio, Texas.

As a "˜Diamond' APEC sponsor, Navitas will showcase both its own advanced GaN power ICs and GaN-enabled power systems.

"It's great to return to APEC as many commercial uses of GaNFast Power ICs are rapidly advancing," said Navitas CTO/COO Dan Kinzer. "We are pleased to demonstrate how monolithic GaN integration has overcome both engineering and commercial hurdles to enable a new class of high-frequency, high-efficiency & high-density power systems."

Visitors can learn about the latest Navitas GaNFast devices and reference designs that achieve small size, low weight and high efficiency levels, with fast-charging speeds for end products ranging from smartphones and tablets, to laptops, monitors & gaming systems.

Navitas recently introduced the world's smallest 65W USB-PD laptop adapter reference design, supporting the dramatic size and weight reductions that consumers are demanding.

"This is a dynamic time for Navitas and the industry, as GaN power systems graduate from academic curiosity to real-life commercial applications," explained Stephen Oliver, vice president of sales and marketing. "Navitas will showcase a new series of GaN platforms that are the result of close collaboration with our customers and partners."

Navitas will present or be featured in the following conference papers, events at the conference:
