GaN Systems appoints Kruvand as sales rep in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana

GaN Systems Inc of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada - a fabless producer of gallium nitride (GaN)-based power switching transistors based on its proprietary Island Technology for power conversion and control applications - has appointed Texas-based engineering sales and sales firm Kruvand Associates as its representative in the US states of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana.

Specialist sales engineering and marketing company Kruvand has expertise in power, interconnect, thermal, electromechanical, RF & wireless active and passive components.  GaN Systems says that, as sales of GaN power transistors ramp up and replace silicon semiconductors in power applications, Kruvand's Inside Sales and Customer Team will provide pre-sales and design services to GaN Systems' customers and distributor partners in these important geographical areas.

"We are building a network of the very best distributors and representatives," says Julian Styles, director sales & marketing, Americas at GaN Systems. "Time to market is crucial in today's highly competitive commercial environment, and are focused on helping our customers achieve optimum results within project deadlines. Kruvand Associates is long-established and has an unrivalled reputation as a representative in the West South Central states… We anticipate a long and mutually beneficial association," he adds.  

Kruvand's president & CEO Robert Logan describes GaN Systems as having the broadest power switching transistor range available, including the world's highest-current device and the smallest packaged GaN transistor. "Our customers recognize immediately that this amount of power out of a tiny package, one quarter the size and one quarter the weight per Watt compared to silicon devices is definitely a key differentiator," he says. "We have customers in multiple markets, including power, telecommunications, medical, computing/datacomms/IT, oil and gas, energy, industrial, consumer and transportation, who are either designing in GaN right now, or looking to get on board with GaN in the very near future. Without it, they realize they may get left behind."

Kruvand's Inside Sales & Customer Service team will facilitate all inquiries and transactions from its offices in Dallas, Austin, Houston, Tulsa, Oklahoma, and El Paso.
