GaN Systems signs exclusive worldwide distribution deal with Mouser Electronics

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 signed an exclusive worldwide distribution agreement with Mouser Electronics Inc (an engineering resource and global authorized distributor of semiconductors and electronic components).

Based on proprietary Island Technology, the firm says that its GaN power transistors offer advantages over traditional silicon MOSFETs and IGBTs to bring smaller, lighter and more efficient power electronics to applications including consumer appliances, data-center server racks, heavy-duty battery-operated power tools, and notebook travel adaptors.

GaN Systems says that its Island Technology IP incorporates the wide bandgap and superior switching speed, temperature, voltage and current performance of gallium nitride into a unique structure that maximizes wafer yields and produces highly efficient transistors up to four times smaller and at lower cost than tradition design approaches.

In order to take advantage of the Island Technology devices’ intrinsic fast switching and dense current-carrying capability, GaN Systems has also designed GaNPX packaging, which has no wire bonds, minimizing inductance and thermal resistance and increasing reliability.

With current ratings from 8A to 200A, GaN Systems claims to be the first company to offer a comprehensive product range of gallium nitride devices to the global market. Initial products distributed by Mouser Electronics will include the GS61008P, 80A/5mΩ normally-off 100V GaN transistor, and the GS66508P, a low-inductance, thermally efficient 650V transistor, with reverse current capability, zero reverse recovery charge and source-sense for optimal high-speed design.
