Rivas added:“The compelling combination of high reliability and high performance offered by Transphorm’s GaN power devices is contributing to increased adoption across an expanded customer base and target applications in fast-charging adapters, data centre servers and crypto mining, as well as electric vehicles. As a result, we’ve entered 2021 with strong momentum and a healthy order backlog that we believe will drive meaningful product revenue growth as we continue to ramp volume shipments for an increasing number of design wins throughout the coming year.”
