GaN Reliability: Beyond Performance and Efficiency

Designers are seeking alternatives to silicon to meet the performance and efficiency challenges of their next-generation technologies. In addition, OEMs are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint by reducing materials and energy use related to their products.

Gallium nitride (GaN) is rapidly becoming the semiconductor of choice as its physical properties and inherent voltage handling capabilities enable companies to address both these challenges. What’s more, in addition to performance and efficiency improvements, GaN can also make a significant contribution to enhancing system reliability.

Anthony Schiro, VP Quality, Navitas Semiconductor highlights how GaNFast power ICs with GaNSense technology further enhance reliability to continue the evolution from legacy silicon to fully-integrated GaN in his latest article with Power Systems Design.
