Delta Electronics adopts Transphorm's 600V GaN HEMTs

The GaN (gallium nitride) power innovator continues to attract global customers across multiple applications
Transphorm has been invited to present at Delta Electronics’ exclusive Power Design Engineering event in Shanghai, to be held November 22nd, 2013.

The firm will present its JEDEC-qualified GaN-on-Silicon HEMT (high electron mobility transistor) products and applications based on its proprietary EZ-GaN technology.

Transphorm’s participation as the only invited external supplier at this internal event, where Delta will share technology insights across a variety of areas at its Hangzhou Design Centre (HDC) and Shanghai Design Centre (SDC), will allow Delta's engineering force to proliferate the adoption of 600V GaN products in applications ranging from power supplies to various other inverters/converters.

Transphorm has established what it claim is the industry’s first qualified 600V GaN device platform with its TPH3006PS GaN HEMT. The GaN transistor combines low switching and conduction losses, offering reduced energy loss of 50 percent compared to conventional silicon-based power conversion designs. The TO-220-packaged device features RDS(on) of 150 mΩ, Qrr of 56 nC and high-frequency switching capability that enables compact lower cost systems.

“We have long recognised gallium nitride as providing unprecedented power conversion efficiency as well as reduced form factor in systems,” says Alpha Zhang, Director of Delta SDC/HDC and Vice Chairman of China Power Supply Society. “Today this great promise has become a reality with Transphorm’s GaN products. With the proof that high-voltage GaN-on-Si is qualified and available for production, we look forward to realising the benefits of GaN being implemented into real power products in the marketplace.”

Transphorm’s efficient, compact and easy-to-embed solutions simplify the design and manufacturing of a wide variety of electrical systems and devices, including power supplies and adapters, PV Inverters for solar panels, motor drives and power conversion for electric vehicles.

Transphorm’s proprietary EZ- GaN platform can reduce power system size, increase energy density and deliver high efficiencies across the grid. For customers looking for a low-risk roadmap to the next generation of power conversion technology, EZ-GaN provides a cost-effective, customisable and easy-to-use solution ready for commercial scale.
