The Power and Evolution of GaN, Part 4: Bringing Precision Control to Surgical Robots with eGaN FETs and IC

The Power and Evolution of GaN, Part 4: Bringing Precision Control to Surgical Robots with eGaN FETs and IC
In this series, how the superior switching speed of gallium nitride (GaN)-on-silicon low voltage power devices have enabled many new applications is being discussed. These applications are transforming industries such as light detection and ranging (LiDAR) for autonomous vehicles, envelope tracking for 5G communications and large surface area wireless power for the home and office. In this article, how GaN power devices are transforming medicine by bringing precision control to surgical robots is examined. Power Systems Design Read article Read more

The Tech Blog Writer Podcast 180: Why Gallium Nitride Is About to Disrupt Silicon
At the CES show in Las Vegas this year, EPC (Efficient Power Conversion) showcased how GaN is a core technology behind autonomous vehicles, the house of the future without power cords, the connected car, and non-invasive colonoscopies with an x-ray system within a pill. Replacing silicon, one of the most prevalent types of semiconductor around, with a different material, Gallium Nitride, commonly abbreviated as GaN — or “eGaN,” EPCS new, improved form of GaN. Silicon enabled Intel to build an entire empire, but could this be displaced by GaN? This is an episode that you can expect to learn ... Read more

Faster, Smarter, Better: The Next Chip Revolution

The world around us will soon be engulfed by machines that affect our living spaces, our bodies, and our experience of light and sound, powered by a novel combination of semiconductors and miniature engines. Tasks as basic as charging a smartphone or cooking an egg—and as complex as scanning for colon cancer or powering flying drones on long journeys—stand to be transformed.
