CTO highlights next-gen GaN ICs to power EVs, solar, datacenter and save up to 2.6 Gtons / year of CO2 emissions
El Segundo, CA – January 13th, 2022 Navitas Semiconductor (Nasdaq:NVTS), the industry-leader in GaN power ICs has announced its participation in a Jefferies Financial Group’s ESG Expert Call, on January 20th.
The Jefferies Group is highly-regarded for sustainable investing with a long-term partnership approach. Navitas co-founder and COO/CTO Dan Kinzer will highlight how next-generation gallium nitride (GaN) semiconductor technologies will drive the advances in electric vehicles, industrial applications and renewable energy that are essential to achieving carbon neutrality goals.
“At a macro level, GaN is expected to address CO2 emissions of 2.6 Gtons/year by 2050 as we work to ‘Electrify Our World’ and meet the challenge of the Paris Accord,” said Mr. Kinzer. “Even at a micro level, due to small size and integrated functions, a GaN power IC has up to a 10x smaller carbon footprint in manufacturing than a legacy power silicon chip. Add that to GaN’s ‘in-use’ contribution to smaller, lighter, more efficient end applications then for every IC shipped, GaN saves 4kg CO2 compared to silicon.”
Dan Kinzer’s pioneering 40-year career led to him being inducted into the International Symposium on Power Semiconductor Devices and ICs (ISPSD) inaugural Hall of Fame in 2018. His experience includes developing advanced power device and IC platforms, wide band-gap GaN and SiC device design, IC and power device fabrication processes, advanced IC design, semiconductor package development and assembly processes, plus design of electronic systems. Dan holds over 130 US patents, and a BSE degree in Engineering Physics from Princeton University.
Mr. Kinzer’s presentation is open to Jefferies’ clients and will take place on Thursday January 20th, at 3pm eastern. For more information, email [email protected] or your regular Jefferies account manager.
