GaN Systems and Converter Technology partner on application support for power control and conversion applications

GaN Systems Inc of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, which is a fabless provider of gallium nitride (GaN)-based power switching semiconductors for power conversion and control applications, and UK-based Converter Technology Ltd, which provides design consultancy and hardware prototyping services for power electronic design, have announced a joint strategic agreement to advance the adoption of new GaN applications. The firms will work to develop application notes, reference designs, training material and technology demonstrators to accelerate commercialization of GaN Systems’ technology.

Working with customers, the aim is to develop new applications where the performance of GaN Systems’ switches and solutions will deliver maximum impact. To support adoption of the new applications, GaN Systems and Converter Technology intend to promote industry engagement, and demonstrate key benefits to GaN Systems’ customers. The engagement should further accelerate adoption of GaN System’s technology into the next generation of power conversion systems in a power devices market that is reckoned to be worth $14bn.

GaN Systems claims that its patented power switch technology promises new levels of performance with advantages in size, weight, cost and efficiency. Aided by its technical expertise and global relationships, Converter Technology facilitates the introduction of technology into high-volume production across a wide range of end-user applications.

“The remarkable performance level available from GaN Systems’ technology presents an ideal opportunity to push the limits in power conversion, and we look forward to demonstrating what can be achieved in real-world customer designs,” says Converter Technology’s technical director Dr Iain Mosely.

“Working with the Converter Technology team and directly with Dr Mosely, we are keen to give our customers expert technical support and best-in-class system-level solutions,” says GaN Systems’ VP business development Geoff Haynes. “Mosely’s deep roots in power system design, his strong customer relationships and the company’s excellent test and analysis capabilities make this an ideal catalyst to accelerate the adoption of GaN power switches,” he adds. “We expect this relationship to become a model for local customer support for our components across the globe.”
