A new era in power efficiency arrives: GaN Systems showcases customer products for first time at PCIM Europe

Real products harness benefits of gallium nitride Island Technology® for industrial-scale, high frequency, high efficiency power conversion 

OTTAWA, Ontario – May 19, 2015 – GaN Systems Inc., a leading developer of gallium nitride power switching semiconductors, is showcasing three customer applications incorporating its Island Technology® devices for the first time on its stand at PCIM Europe.  The customer products being displayed are finished production items. Each has been designed by the customer to bring the unique benefits offered by GaN Systems’ broad product range of small highly-efficient, industrial-scale power switching transistors to its particular market.   

DRS Technologies, a supplier of integrated products, services and support to the military and prime contractors, has designed a 2kW vehicle power inverter using GaN Systems’ GS66508P, 650V E-HEMT power switch.  The vehicle power inverter achieves an impressive 92% efficiency, thanks to the advantages brought by the GS66508P’s ultra low FOM Island Technology® die in its low inductance, proprietary GaNPX™ packaging.  As well as dramatically improving energy efficiency, the use of GaN Systems’ technology has reduced the inverter’s part count and is entirely passively cooled. 

Virideon BlueSky Mast designs and builds advanced multi-purpose, portable mast platforms for military communications and surveillance.  The company has designed and produced the TPS-2C 2KWh tactical power package using GaN Systems’ GS61008P 100V E-HEMT transistor that offers 40A continuous discharge,  89Ah capacity, and an 98% peak charger efficiency 

LS Industrial Systems is a leading Korean company focussed on delivering safe clean energy. On GaN Systems’ stand, PCIM visitors can see its SISPM full bridge Power Module designed around GaN Systems’ 650V 30A GS66508P. 

“These three products are among thousands of innovative applications currently being readied for launch by our global customer base. “ comments Girvan Patterson, President, GaN Systems. “Our broad range of Island Technology power switching devices and our core IPs make GaN Systems’ devices easy for designers to work with, enabling leading companies around the world to harness the power of GaN and bring its benefits to industrial and consumer products ranging from solar inverters to ultra-slim TVs.  GaN is real and right now and here’s the proof.”  

GaN Systems is the first company to have developed and brought a comprehensive product range of devices with current ratings from 8A to 250A to the global market – its Island Technology® die design, combined with its extremely low inductance and thermally efficient GaNPX™ packaging and Drive Assist technology means the company’s GaN transistors offer a 40-fold improvement in switching and conduction performance over traditional silicon MOSFETs and IGBTs.  Devices are available now through its worldwide distribution network. 

About GaN Systems

GaN Systems is a fabless semiconductor company that is the first place systems designers go to realize all the benefits of gallium nitride in their power conversion and control applications.  To overcome silicon’s limitations in switching speed, temperature, voltage and current, the company develops the most complete range of gallium nitride power switching transistors for a wide variety of markets.  GaN Systems’ unique Island Technology® addresses today’s challenges of cost, performance, and manufacturability resulting in devices that are smaller and more efficient than other GaN design approaches.  The company is headquartered in Ottawa, Canada.
