GaN Systems appoints senior director of technical marketing, Asia

GaN Systems Inc of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, a fabless developer of gallium nitride (GaN)-based power switching semiconductors for power conversion and control applications, has appointed Charles Bailley as senior director technical marketing, Asia.

The appointment is part of its strategy to increase headcount worldwide to support early adopters of GaN-based devices while, the firm says, automotive, industrial and enterprise equipment manufacturers replace legacy silicon-based semiconductors with GaN power devices in order to achieve higher efficiency, power density and reliability.

Bailley’s experience in the power semiconductor industry includes over 18 years of engineering and management in semiconductors and platforms at firms including Intel, Intersil and CHiL Semiconductor (since acquired by International Rectifier). His background includes applications engineering, design engineering in both power electronics and analogue ICs, and marketing and business development. He has an MSEE from Florida Institute of Technology and a BSEE from the US Naval Academy, and he also holds a number of US patents.

“2014 is the year we will commercialize our broad range of GaN-on-silicon products, and Charles will play a key role in driving our business forward, including working with leading customers to define products for their markets,” comments GaN Systems’ CEO Girvan Patterson.

“It’s very exciting to be joining GaN Systems as gallium nitride power technology matures and its market share is poised for rapid growth,” says Bailley. “Asia is the largest market for power electronics and I’m very much looking forward to supporting customers in the region.”

GaN Systems reckons that Bailley’s addition further strengthens its global presence. He will work with founder & VP of business development Geoff Haynes (who leads business development worldwide), Tony Astley (responsible for managing business operations in Europe) and Julian Styles (business development director in the Americas).
