GaN Systems’ gallium nitride semiconductors for more efficient power conversion at IEEE Energy Conversion Congress & Expo

Smaller and lighter than silicon for alternative energy, smart-grid, electric and hybrid vehicles and high efficiency power supply applications

Business Wire

OTTAWA, Canada--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

GaN Systems Inc, a leading developer of gallium nitride power switching semiconductors, is exhibiting on Booth 117 at the IEEE Energy Conversion Expo and Conference in Denver, Colorado, 15 – 19 September.

GaN Systems is the leading specialist in gallium nitride devices for power conversion and control applications and has developed proprietary Island Technology™ which produces significantly smaller and more efficient devices than traditional silicon semiconductors. Gallium nitride has lower on-resistance and fast-switching capabilities, achieving superior power conversion within smaller, lighter, high power density devices which can also operate at high temperatures.

GaN Systems has access to fabs around the globe and is focussed on the easy adoption of gallium nitride by design and systems engineers. The company’s executives, including Girvan Paterson, CEO, Larry Spaziani, VP Product Management and US Director of Business Development, Julian Styles, will be on hand to discuss potential applications with attendees, including power electronics for electric & hybrid vehicles, renewable energy applications, smartgrid, switch mode power supplies and others.

About GaN Systems

GaN Systems is the first place systems designers go to realize all of the benefits of gallium nitride in their power conversion and control applications. To overcome silicon’s limitations in switching speed, temperature, voltage and current, the company develops the most complete range of gallium nitride power switching solutions for a variety of markets. Its unique Island Technology™ addresses today’s cost, performance, and manufacturability related challenges of gallium nitride resulting in devices that are up to four times smaller and four times more efficient than traditional design approaches. The Company also leverages existing multi‐sourced manufacturing processes due to its transportable, fabless model, and additional innovations, makes it easy to incorporate gallium nitride into any design. GaN Systems is run by a seasoned semiconductor team with decades of industry experience and a track record of repeated success. The Company stands to do more for gallium nitride adoption in power conversion than any other. www.gansystems.com
