For EVs, the semiconductors used in traction inverters have a significant impact on efficiency, power density, and cooling requirements. The three-phase AC motors used in today’s EVs run at voltages up to 1,000V and switching frequencies up to 20 kHz. This is very close to the operational limits of the silicon-based metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect
With silicon nearing its physical limits, electronics manufacturers are turning to non-traditional semiconducting materials, notably wide-bandgap (WBG) semiconductors. Some are adopting these technologies to hit cost and performance targets that otherwise can’t be reached, and while others seek to differentiate their products from their competitors’.

As engineers within the design community read and learn about new products and topologies, they become skeptical about the promises for improved operating characteristics. The promise of a step-function improvement with GaN in audio systems could be classified as one of these scenarios. However, with the GaN Systems Stereo Class-D Amplifier system solution,
