GaN Systems and Converter Technology partner to drive power semiconductors forward

GaN Systems and Converter Technology plan to deliver application support for advanced power control and conversion GaN applications

Canada-based developer of gallium nitride power switching semiconductors, GaN Systems, and UK design consultancy, Converter Technology, have joined forces to advance the adoption of new GaN applications. Under the terms of the agreement, the companies will work directly to develop application notes, reference designs, training material and cutting-edge technology demonstrators to accelerate the commercialisation of GaN Systems' technology. The partners plan to develop new applications where the performance of GaN Systems' switches and solutions will deliver maximum impact. To support the adoption of the new applications, GaN Systems and Converter Technology will promote industry engagement, and demonstrate key benefits to GaN Systems' customers. The team hopes this engagement will further accelerate the adoption of GaN System's technology into the next generation of power conversion systems in a power devices market worth $14 billion. “The remarkable performance level available from GaN Systems' technology presents an ideal opportunity to push the limits in power conversion and we look forward to demonstrating what can be achieved in real world customer designs," said Iain Mosely, technical director of Converter Technology. GaN Systems' patented power switch technology promises new levels of performance with unparalleled advantages of size, weight, cost and efficiency. At the same time, Converter Technology, claims to be leading facilitator of pushing ground-breaking technology into high volume production across a wide range of end user applications.

  • GaN Systems last week closed its Series B financing round with existing investors and cleantech venture capital firms Chrysalix Energy Venture Capital and RockPort Capital, only six months after closing its Series A round. Initial development milestones were achieved months ahead of schedule.
