Integra Wins US Air Force Contract
Two-year contract to accelerate technology and manufacturing readiness of thermally-enhanced GaN/SiC
Integra Technologies has been awarded a two-year contract by the US Air Force to accelerate technology and manufacturing readiness of its patented, Thermally-Enhanced GaN/SiC technology.
Integra's GaN/SiC technology is designed for high efficiency, solid-state RF power applications including high power radar systems requiring improved performance, increased range and reduced operating costs.
The company has developed its Thermally Enhanced GaN/SiC to deliver superior power and efficiency while operating at lower temperatures which is a key enabler of next generation high performance radar platforms. The company is using its domestic R&D and manufacturing platform to optimise the GaN epitaxial wafer, device design and package design. Additionally, the US Air Force contract will enable robust qualification of Integra's Thermally Enhanced GaN/SiC for production.
"We are excited to work with the Air Force," said Suja Ramnath, president and CEO of Integra Technologies. “Through this effort, we have the opportunity to commercialise our leap-ahead GaN/SiC technology to meet the high efficiency performance and production readiness requirements of the US Department of Defence.”
