GaN Systems at APEC 2020


Company to show new transistors and power modules, tools, and customer demonstrations in New Orleans

GaN Systems will show its latest GaN transistors and power modules, reference designs and tools, and customer demonstrations in consumer electronics, industrial, and automotive industries at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) Booth 1147 in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA on March 15 to March 19, 2020.

For example, it will feature automotive power transistors including: 650V/60A Gen2 automotive transistors which exceed enhanced AEC-Q101 performance requirements and have lifetime results of FIT<<1. These are available in both top-side cooled GS-065-060-5-T-A and bottom-side cooled GS-065-060-5-B-A versions

New design tools include the first PLECS simulation models for 100V devices; Class D audio evaluation boards for superior sound, high performance, and high power; designs for both the Class D audio amplifier and audio-grade switch mode power supply (SMPS); and reference designs from Renesas, ON Semiconductor, and Heyday.

Customer applications

The company will exhibit a range of the latest customer applications including mobile phone and computer adapters that are three to four times smaller with GaN versus silicon, including devices from Eggtronic and CUI; and automotive EV onboard chargers, DC/DC converter, and traction inverter with industry-leading power density from Hella, Canoo, and Brightloop. It will also show Siemens’ Simatic Micro-Drive factory motor controller offering increased efficiency, faster motor response time, and smaller size. Other customer applications include: PicoLAS laser diode driver that is ten times times smaller than silicon-based designs and Airity nanosecond pulsers for cold plasma generation. THere will also be a Toyota All-GaN-Vehicle featuring a GaN traction inverter, GaN onboard charger, and GaN DC-DC converter.

GaN Systems experts will also be providing best practices for using GaN through technical and industry presentations.
