GaN Systems has announced a new reference design for the highest power density, high efficiency 65W Active Clamp Flyback (ACF) GaN charger in collaboration with Silanna Semiconductor. The reference design is now available at Silanna Semiconductor and provides an easy design for ACF USB-C PD GaN chargers, reducing design cycles and product time to market
We often think of the industrial sector as conservative, especially in the implementation of new technologies. But as we’ve moved into the latest phase of the industrial revolution – Industry 4.0 – which encompasses smart manufacturing and Industrial IoT (IIoT), pioneering technologies like GaN (gallium nitride) power transistors are being embraced. GaN is making waves

New Half-Bridge Daughter Cards Feature Renesas GaN FET Drivers GaN Systems, the global leader in GaN (gallium nitride) power semiconductors, announced today the release of two 650V half-bridge daughter cards (30A and 60A), which provide an ultra-versatile platform to evaluate GaN drivers and transistors. The evaluation cards are available in two power levels, up to
While there might be widespread recognition of the greener nature of electric vehicles (EVs) compared to petrol or diesel vehicles, some consumers stubbornly refuse to make the transition, primarily because of cost. However, other factors also come into play. According to a McKinsey report, range anxiety and not having enough access to efficient charging stations
New Reference Design Leads in Size, Thermals, EMI, And Efficiency Performance GaN Systems, the global leader in GaN (gallium nitride) power semiconductors, has announced a new reference design for a high power density 65W QR (quasi-resonant) charger targeted for the consumer electronics market, including mobile phone and laptop computer applications. The reference design comprises of
As developers adopt a total solution strategy, they will need access to comprehensive portfolios supported by a complete and reliable global supply chain and all necessary design simulation and development tools. Even its skeptics have had a change of heart, as they marvel at its capabilities, performance, and strength. Silicon Carbide (SiC), the compound that
Electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) are looking for solutions to power-conversion efficiency. For a long time, most electronic power devices were based on silicon, a semiconductor that can be processed without generating virtually any defects. However, the theoretical performance of silicon has now been almost entirely achieved, highlighting some limits of this
GaN Systems and BrightLoop Converters announced their strategic partnership to develop the latest AC/DC and DC/DC Converter products for electric motorsport and aerospace applications. Leveraging GaN Systems’ 650V GaN transistors, BrightLoop produces a range of converters that are smaller, lighter, and more efficient than currently available in the market. Read More!
eeDesignIt interviews Jim Witham, CEO of GaN Systems GaN is changing the way we power things, and that’s becoming increasingly evident whether you look at consumer, automotive, 5G, or industrial power applications. Take 5G — It’s high bandwidth and low latency. From the consumer standpoint, that means fast video downloads with no lag.
