Mouser to distribute Navitas’ wide-bandgap semiconductors products globally
Gallium nitride (GaN) power IC and silicon carbide (SiC) technology firm Navitas Semiconductor of Torrance, CA, USA has signed an agreement with global semiconductor and electronic component distributor Mouser Electronics Inc (a Berkshire Hathaway company).
The new worldwide agreement will see Mouser stock Navitas GaNFast and GeneSiC wide-bandgap (WBG) semiconductor technologies. GaNFast power ICs integrate GaN power and drive, with control, sensing and protection to enable faster charging, higher power density and greater energy savings. Complementary GeneSiC power devices are optimized high-power, high-voltage and high-reliability SiC solutions. Focus markets include mobile, consumer, data center, electric vehicle (EV), solar, wind, smart grid, and industrial.
“The pressure on designers and system architects to improve application performance while minimizing size and driving down energy use is creating a rapidly growing global demand for efficient and integrated WBG semiconductors,” says David Carroll, senior VP worldwide sales at Navitas. “Mouser’s global reach means this agreement will give electronic design engineers and buyers improved access to the advanced Navitas technologies that are playing a key role in addressing this demand and meeting the needs of a market that is potentially worth $22bn a year,” he adds.
“Mouser is pleased to add this strong industry leader to our line card, and to deliver these innovative power devices to our customers,” comments Kristin Schuetter, Mouser’s VP of supplier management. “Design engineers now have easy access to Navitas’ advanced components, backed by Mouser's unsurpassed customer service and best-in-class logistics.”
