Next-gen GaN power ICs enable 3x faster charging, longer range, lower costs
El Segundo, CA – January 19th, 2022: Navitas Semiconductor (Nasdaq: NVTS), the industry-leader in gallium nitride (GaN) power integrated circuits (ICs) has announced its participation at Baird’s Vehicle Technology & Mobility Conference being held virtually on Tuesday, January 25, 2022 at 2.55pm EST.
GaN-based on-board chargers (OBCs) are estimated to charge 3x faster with up to 70% energy savings compared to legacy silicon solutions. GaN OBCs, DC-DC converters and traction inverters are estimated to extend EV range or reduce battery costs by 5%, and to accelerate adoption of EVs worldwide by 3 years. Navitas will highlight how efficiency and cost improvements offered by GaN allow electric vehicle (EV) manufacturers to address the key challenges of reducing charging time, increasing energy savings, lowering price and extending range.
Discussing the benefits of GaN in EVs, Gene Sheridan, Navitas CEO and co-founder comments: “GaN isn’t only a critical enabling technology, it’s a crucial sustainability factor. Thanks to the efficiency and cost improvements enabled by Navitas GaN, the estimated 3-year acceleration of EV adoption could deliver a 20%/year reduction in road sector CO2 emissions by 2050, the target of the Paris Accord.”
Hosted by the company’s Equity Research and Global Investment Banking teams, Baird’s Vehicle Technology & Mobility Conference unites company leaders with investors and select corporates.
