Where Gallium Nitride (GaN) FETs are Gaining Adoption – APEC 2022
At the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) in 2022, Efficient Power Conversion highlighted the volume applications that are adopting gallium nitride (GaN) FETs and integrated circuits (ICs). This short video provides a brief overview of those applications which include:
48 V DC-DC for High-Density Computing and Automotive
The high-density computing and automotive markets are coalescing on the 48 V bus and GaN is the ideal solution at this voltage node. GaN enables the state-of-the-art in power density with a 5000 W/in3 LLC design for high-density computing as well as 2 kW bidirectional converters to power the next generation of mild hybrid and electric vehicles.
GaN-based motor drives are allowing a variety of applications such as warehouse autonomous robots, eMobility, and drones to reduce size and weight, extend range, and increase reliability.
GaN-based USB-C fast chargers can be up to 40% smaller and charge 2.5X faster than traditional silicon-based chargers. GaN enables miniaturization, very high efficiency, and excellent thermal performance for this high-volume application.
