Navitas at APEC

We are proud to be featured in 10 papers and presentations at APEC

Navitas Semiconductor announced today that the company's recently launched GaN Power ICs will be featured in ten technical papers and industry papers at the Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC) held at the Tampa Convention Center, Tampa, Florida, March 26th – 30th, 2017.

“We are proud to be featured in 10 papers and presentations at APEC.” said Navitas CTO/COO, Dan Kinzer. “Our GaN power ICs are achieving wide recognition in the industry for enabling new benchmarks in speed, efficiency and power density at an affordable cost. Navitas will also be showcasing yet another major industry advancement - a unique class of fully integrated half bridge GaN ICs that push these boundaries even further.”

Technical papers highlighting Navitas GaN Power ICs across a broad range of applications from 25W smartphone chargers to 3kW data centers are presented by Stanford University, North Carolina State University, University of Tennessee Knoxville, Intel, Texas Instruments and Navitas.

“APEC is the perfect opportunity to witness first-hand the smaller size, faster-charging and lower system costs enabled by GaN power ICs over a wide range of power applications,” commented Navitas VP of Sales and Marketing, Stephen Oliver. “Demand for the single and half-bridge GaN Power ICs has been intense, and we anticipate exciting one-on-one reviews with customers and industry partners,” Oliver added.
