Gallium nitride (GaN): pushing performance beyond silicon

Maximize power density and reliability with our portfolio of GaN devices for every power level

We provide gallium nitride (GaN) power devices and easy-to-use modules that meet next generation system requirements and our high standards of quality and reliability.

High power density & efficiency

GaN technology enables double power density of silicon designs and reduced switching losses by 80%, increasing system efficiency.

Integrated

Our family of GaN devices integrate GaN FETs, with high speed drivers and built-in protection into one package. Optimized layout provides an easy to use solution.

Robust

Our GaN is backed by over 20 million hours of device and system reliability testing. High-speed over-current and over-temperature protection give designers the confidence to design with GaN.

What is GaN?

Revolutionizing power engineering
 
Gallium nitride, or GaN is revolutionizing the power engineering world by enabling high-speed, increased efficiency, and higher power density never before possible with silicon MOSFETs.
 
GaN’s inherent lower gate and output capacitance enable MHz switching frequency operation while reducing gate and switching losses to increase efficiency. Unlike silicon, GaN naturally lacks a body diode, which eliminated reverse recovery loss and further increases efficiency and reduces switch node ringing and EMI.
