Industry-leader in next-gen semiconductor leverages #1 position in mobile fast chargers into higher-power data center, solar and EV markets
El Segundo, CA, USA – June 14th, 2022— Navitas Semiconductor (Nasdaq: NVTS), the industry-leader in gallium nitride (GaN) power ICs, will highlight how record shipments and high quality in the fast and ultra-fast mobile charging market are the foundation for high-power, high-reliability markets at the forthcoming PowerUP EXPO 2022 virtual conference and exhibition (28th – 30th June).
Gallium nitride (GaN) is a next-generation semiconductor technology that runs up to 20x faster than legacy silicon and enables up to 3x more power, 40% energy savings and 3x faster charging in half the size and weight. Navitas’ GaNFast power ICs integrate GaN power and drive plus sensing, protection and control to deliver simple, small, fast and efficient power conversion performance, in diverse applications from 20 W fast chargers and IoT devices to 22 kW EV on-board chargers.
Sponsored by Navitas, the PowerUP EXPO brings together a virtual exhibition with online keynotes, panel discussions, technical presentations and tutorials covering major technical trends, market requirements and applications relevant to the power electronics sector. This year’s event includes a focus ‘wide band-gap’ devices, applications and system solutions, including GaN and silicon carbide (SiC).
The Navitas virtual booth will showcase the latest developments and product release in high-speed integrated GaN semiconductors, with videos, white papers, application details, product briefs and detailed sustainability reporting. Stephen Oliver, the company’s VP of Corporate Marketing and Investor Relations, will take part in a panel discussion to review recent progress and the future for GaN solutions, and later present a technical paper to highlight Navitas’ mission to “Electrify Our World™”. GaN is a critical catalyst and accelerator as we transition away from fossil-fuel loads and address a 2.6 Gton-per-year reduction in CO2 by the time of the Paris Accord target – 2050.
“Backed by AspenCore’s EETimes and Power Electronic News, PowerUP has become an important conference and exhibition for engineers and technologists looking to find out about the latest power industry developments,” said David Carroll, Navitas Sr VP Worldwide Sales. “Our extensive involvement in this year’s event underlines the growing importance of GaN in addressing the design, performance and sustainability issues facing engineers as they seek to Electrify our World.”
