Transphorm introduces first qualified 600V Gallium Nitride product and demonstrates 99+% efficient DC-DC boost converter
GaN (gallium nitride) power electronics provider Transphorm Inc. (earlier post) announced the qualification of its first products, power diodes based on its EZ-GaN (Gallium Nitride) technology, at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC):
- TPS2010PK – 600 V, 6 A, GaN diode in the industry standard TO-220 package
- TPS2011PK – 600 V, 4 A, GaN diode in the industry standard TO-220 package
- TPS2012PK – 600 V, 2 A, GaN diode in the industry standard TO-220 package
These products are now qualified and available for sale through the Transphorm web site to approved customers.
Transphorm’s solutions cut energy waste by 20% today and simplify the design and manufacturing of a wide variety of electrical systems and devices, including motor drives, power supplies and inverters for solar panels and electric vehicles, according to the company. To demonstrate the performance advantage of the GaN-based technology, Transphorm will showcase at the APEC exhibition a EZ-GaN-based, DC-to-DC Boost Converter running at more than 99% efficiency.
Transphorm is the first to provide a qualified 600 volt GaN solution to inefficient power conversion. The GaN products come in industry-standard packages and are designed for optimum high-frequency switching. Transphorm’s proprietary EZ-GaN platform can reduce power system size, increase energy density and deliver high efficiencies for a range of power electronics applications.
