New Gallium Nitride (GaNFast) technology confines the silicon chip to history at PCIM Europe Conference

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.–(PRWeb)— Navitas Semiconductor today announced that it will show how world-leading GaNFast™ power IC technology has penetrated the fast charger and power conversion market, taking share from legacy silicon chips at a ‘virtual’ PCIM 2020 (July 7th-8th).

Forty years ago, the power electronics industry experienced an extraordinary and disruptive change with the introduction of silicon MOSFET technology. In the following decade, the power supply industry experienced a 5x increase in power density, a 5x improvement in energy savings and a 3x reduction in costs. The next 30 years saw heavy investment but this yielded only smaller and smaller improvements. Now, GaN Power ICs with monolithic-integration of GaN FET, GaN digital and GaN analog circuits have driven a new generation of high-frequency, high-efficiency and very high-density power converters. Lenovo, Xiaomi and Asus/NVIDIA are amongst the tier-1 OEMs who have adopted GaNFast technology.

“2020 is the game-changer year for power electronics, with high-speed GaN taking market share from old, slow silicon chips – and demand is high for more GaN knowledge”, noted Stephen Oliver, VP Corporate Marketing and Investor Relations, Navitas Semiconductor. “This year’s virtual conference format prompted us to reconsider how we can help more customers discover and utilize GaNFast power ICs – and do it in a safe, yet extremely productive way. The in-depth video presentations can be viewed by designers at their convenient time, place and pace.”

Gallium Nitride (GaN) is a next-generation semiconductor technology that runs up to 20x faster than old, slow silicon (Si), and enables 3x more power, which translates to up to 3x faster charging in half the size & weight. GaNFast power ICs enable next-generational upgrades across diverse markets from 25-100W consumer and mobile USB-C fast chargers and adapters for smartphones and laptops, to 200-800W TV and all-in-one computers and on up to multi-kW EV, industrial and datacenter power supplies.
