GaN Power ICs drive converter performance.
El Segundo,CA (PRWEB) April 19, 2016
Navitas Semiconductor today announced a technology seminar titled “GaN Power ICs and the High Frequency Eco-System” as part of the Power Sources Manufacturers Association’s (PSMA) Power Technology Roadmap.
The Navitas seminar is part of a year-long series by power electronics experts from industry and academia, to be included in the PSMA’s roadmap published in March 2017.
The GaN market is forecast to be US$2.6B by 2022, driven by the efficiency, size and cost-benefits of high frequency switching. The seminar introduces Navitas’ proprietary AllGaN™ technology with the world’s highest performance 650V GaN FET, drive and logic circuits, and the low inductance, low profile industry-standard packaging which combine to make a simple yet powerful powertrain building block for off-line AC-DC, 400V DC-DC or inverter systems. Real-life application examples - with schematics, layout, waveforms and thermal results – prove higher system efficiency, higher power density and lower cost by addressing issues such as gate drive, layout, availability of MHz magnetics and controllers, EMI performance, etc.
“It is a great honor for Navitas to be a key part of the PSMA’s Power Technology Roadmap,” said Stephen Oliver, VP Marketing & Sales at Navitas. “Increasing converter switching frequency by industry collaboration – with new GaN Power ICs, new controllers, new magnetic materials, new topologies – reaps huge rewards in system performance and cost.”
The free seminar, with live Q & A, will be presented on Thursday April 21st 2016 at 11am Eastern Standard Time (USA). PSMA members will automatically receive registration emails, non-members may register here or by emailing power(at)psma(dot)com.
