GaN Systems' director of US business development elected to board of Power Electronics Industry Collaborative

GaN Systems Inc of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, a fabless developer of gallium nitride (GaN)-based power switching semiconductors for power conversion and control applications, says that Julian Styles, its director of business development USA, has been elected to the board of the Power Electronics Industry Collaborative (PEIC), the US industry-driven, membership-based consortium of suppliers, OEMs, research companies and other stakeholders working to accelerate the development and growth of power electronics in the USA. PEIC’s aim is to increase investment in manufacturing capabilities and advance innovation in power electronics in the USA as energy efficiency becomes increasingly important globally.

GaN Systems has developed a range of gallium nitride power switching products based on its proprietary Island Technology. The firm says that its devices can overcome the limitations of traditional silicon semiconductors, offering far greater efficiency in power conversion applications such as solar, wind, smart-grid, electric and hybrid vehicles and power supply applications. GaN Systems recently announced that its products will be widely commercially available this year.

“Innovative semiconductor companies like GaN Systems succeed best when they are part of a thriving power electronics ecosystem,” believes Styles. “We are very impressed with PEIC’s efforts to build and strengthen this ecosystem in the USA.”
