GaN Systems Leads the Power Electronics Revolution at APEC 2020

Reading time ( words)

GaN Systems, the global leader in GaN power semiconductors, will showcase how its leading GaN transistors are a cornerstone technology for power electronics equipment. New transistor products and power modules, reference designs and tools, and customer demonstrations in consumer electronics, industrial, and automotive industries will be on display at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) Booth 1147 in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA on March 15 to March 19, 2020.

New Solutions

  • Automotive power transistors, including: 650V/60A Gen2 automotive transistors which exceed enhanced AEC-Q101 performance requirements and have lifetime results of FIT<
  • High power modules, including: 650V/150A Full-Bridge Module & Driver; 650V/150A Half-Bridge IPM; and 650V/300A 3phase Module & Driver
  • Integrated DrGaN modules, including: 100V integrated DrGaN device and 650V integrated Half-Bridge DrGaN power stage

New Design Tools

  • World’s first PLECS simulation models for 100V devices
  • Class D audio evaluation boards for superior sound, high performance, and high power; designs for both the Class D audio amplifier and audio-grade switch mode power supply (SMPS)
  • Reference designs from Renesas, ON Semiconductor, and Heyday

Customer Applications

  • Mobile phone and computer adapters that are 3-4X times smaller with GaN versus silicon, including devices from Eggtronic and CUI
  • Siemens’ Simatic Micro-Drive factory motor controller offering increased efficiency, faster motor response time, and smaller size
  • PicoLAS laser diode driver that is 10X times smaller than silicon-based designs and Airity nanosecond pulsers for cold plasma generation
  • "The Credit Card," a 2kV output, up to 250W DC power supply more than 10X smaller and lighter than comparable power supplies
  • Automotive EV onboard chargers, DC/DC converter, and traction inverter with industry-leading power density from Hella, Canoo, and Brightloop
  • Toyota All-GaN-Vehicle featuring a GaN traction inverter, GaN onboard charger, and GaN DC-DC converter

GaN Systems experts will also be providing best practices leveraging GaN through technical and industry presentations.
