Nexperia 650V GaN FETs Enable 80 PLUS Titanium-class Power Supplies

News

Second-generation power GaN FET devices offer significant performance advantages

Nexperi has announced volume availability of its second-generation 650 V power GaN FET device family, offering significant performance advantages over previous technologies and competitive devices.

With RDS(on) performance down to 35 mΩ (typical), the new power GaN FETs target single phase AC/DC and DC/DC industrial switched mode power supplies (SMPS), ranging from 2 kW to 10 kW, especially server and telecoms supplies that must meet 80 PLUS Titanium efficiency regulations. The devices are also an excellent fit for solar inverters and servo drives in the same power range.

Available in TO-247 packaging, the new 650V H2 power GaN FETs deliver a 36 percent shrinkage in die size for a given RDS(on) value, for better stability and efficiency. The cascode configuration eliminates the need for complicated drivers, speeding time to market. The devices deliver high performance in both hard-switching and soft-switching configurations, offering designers maximum flexibility.

Dilder Chowdhury, Nexperia's GaN strategic marketing director explains: “Titanium is the most demanding of the 80 PLUS specifications, requiring >91 percent efficiency under full load conditions (>96 percent at 50 percent load). Achieving this level of performance in server power applications operating at 2 kW and above, using conventional silicon components, is complex and challenging. Nexperia's new power GaN FETs are ideally suited to an elegant, bridgeless totem pole configuration that uses fewer components and reduces both physical size and costs.”

The Nexperia GAN041-650WSB GaN FETs are now available in high volume.



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
