GaN Systems Inc. today announced it is has signed an exclusive worldwide distribution agreement with Mouser Electronics. GaN Systems’ gallium-nitride (GaN) power transistors are based on its proprietary Island Technology® and offer significant advantages over traditional silicon MOSFETs and IGBTs to bring smaller, lighter and more efficient power electronics to numerous applications including consumer appliances, data center server racks, heavy-duty battery-operated power tools, notebook travel adaptors and many others.
GaN Systems' Island Technology® IP incorporates the wide-bandgap and superior switching speed, temperature, voltage and current performance of gallium nitride into a unique structure that maximizes wafer yields and produces highly efficient transistors up to four times smaller and at lower cost than tradition design approaches. In order to take advantage of the Island Technology devices' intrinsic fast switching and dense current carrying capability, GaN Systems also designed GaNPX packaging, which has no wire bonds, minimizing inductance and thermal resistance and increasing reliability.
With current ratings from 8A to 200A, GaN Systems is the first company to offer a comprehensive product range of gallium nitride devices to the global market. Initial products distributed by Mouser Electronics will include the GS61008P, 80A/5mâ„¦ normally-off 100V GaN transistor, and a low inductance, thermally-efficient 650V transistor, the GS66508P, with reverse current capability, zero reverse recovery charge and source-sense for optimal high speed design.
