Motor Drive
GaN Reduces Size and Weight, Extends Range, and Increases Reliability

The growing demand for elector mobility (eMobility) fuels the needs for highly efficienct and compact motor drives. GaN FETs and ICS enable the design of inverters that increase motor efficiency while reducing size, weight, and cost; this enables motor systems that are smaller, lighter, less noisy, have more torque, more range, and greater precision. These advantage are ideal for producing smaller, lighter, more efficient motor systems for everything from emobility (ebikes and escooters) to personal robotics such as vacuums and drones.
