GaN power ICs ramp production for fast-chargers and target kW+ applications

EL SEGUNDO, Calif.–(PR Web)— Navitas Semiconductor today announced it will present the latest in GaNFast power IC advances and leading-edge end-customer examples at this year’s PCIM Europe conference.  PCIM (Power Conversion & Intelligent Motion) is Europe’s leading meeting-point for specialists in power electronics and applications in motor drive, renewable energy, electric vehicles and energy management.

The world’s first GaNFast power ICs enable power systems to simultaneously achieve MHz-frequency and highest-efficiency operation. These advances translate to smaller, faster, lighter and lower cost power conversion.

“Navitas is the proven leader in GaN technology and has enabled customers to deliver the highest-performance, fastest-charging, mass-production smartphone and laptop power solutions in the market”, said Stephen Oliver, VP Marketing & Sales. “Upon this strong foundation, GaNFast ICs are now building a new class of kW+ power systems for cloud computing, new energy, and a broad range of eMobility solutions from ebike and drone chargers, to full-size EV on-board chargers (OBC), which increase power densities and battery-charging rates by 3x, improve energy savings by 50% or more, to extend driving range and lower system costs”.
