Overview

Farnell in partnership with Nexperia, the expert in discrete and MOSFET components and analog & logic ICs, presents high-efficiency GaN FET with industry-leading performance.

Efficient power use is a key industrial challenge and a driver for innovation. Societal pressure and legislation are demanding increasing efficiencies in power conversion and control. For some applications power conversion efficiency and power density are critical for market adoption. Prime examples include the trend towards automotive electrification and the high-voltage communications and industrial infrastructure sectors. GaN FETs enable smaller, faster, cooler, lighter systems, with lower overall system cost.

Powering the IoT infrastructure

Providing us with the always on cloud connectivity, processing power and storage we demand takes a lot of power. Very efficient high-end power supplies are needed to deliver the reduced power losses in industrial automation, data centres, and telecommunications infrastructure. That is why the improved density and efficient power conversion offered by GaN-on-Si is critical.

Electrification of the powertrain

With every gram of CO₂ exhaust being vital in today’s cars, it is driving the move to vehicle electrification. From hybrids through to full electric vehicles, electrification of the powertrain is expected to dominate power semiconductor market growth in the next two decades. The power density and efficiency of GaN-on-Si will play a leading role in this space, specifically for on-board-chargers (EV charging), DC/DC converters and motor drive traction inverters (xEV traction inverters).
