The electronics used in harsh environments, such as space, high-altitude flight, or high-reliability military applications, demand optimal system-level performance and reliability. GaN FETs and ICs are smaller, lower-weight, more efficient, higher reliability, and lower cost than aging silicon devices. This enables entirely new architectures for satellite power and data transmission, robotics, drones, and aeronautical power systems. Space systems include space programs, satellite buses, space exploration, and service providers.
Have a question about aerospace and defense applications?
Aerospace and Defense DC-DC conversion applications require converters that can operate in harsh environments, so much have a high degree of reliability, efficiency, and ruggedness.
Lidar systems are used in Aerospace and Defense for a range of applications, including terrain mapping, object detection and tracking, obstacle avoidance, and situational awareness. Solutions must be highly precise, rugged, lightweight, and capable of long-range detection.
Motor drives are used in Aerospace and Defense for a variety of applications, including propulsion systems for aircraft and missiles, control systems for robotics and unmanned vehicles, and require high power density, high efficiency, precise control, and rugged reliability.
Wireless power is used in Aerospace and Defense for a variety of applications including UAV charging, field hospitals, and portable equipment battery charging to enhance mobility, reduce maintenance, and increase operational flexibility, contributing to mission success and efficiency.
