Transphorm adds Richardson Electronics as global distributor and A/D Sales as Northeast sales rep

Transphorm Inc of Goleta, near Santa Barbara, CA, USA - which designs and manufactures JEDEC-qualified 650V gallium nitride (GaN)-based devices for high-voltage power conversion applications - has added global distributor Richardson Electronics and the Northeast representative A/D Sales to support growing design activity for its GaN power transistors and modules.

"The power electronics industry is waking up to the realization that Transphorm GaN is enabling the most compact, highest-efficiency solar inverters, on-board electric vehicle chargers, power supplies and other high-power-density applications," says Michael White, senior VP, sales & marketing. "Our new channel partners bring both knowledge and access to the design engineering community to facilitate the integration of Transphorm GaN devices into these applications," he adds.  

Transphorm demonstrating key applications at APEC

In booth 2133 at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC 2016) in Long Beach, CA, USA (20-24 March), Transphorm is exhibiting the following live demonstrations:

  • high-power 3.5kW bridgeless totem-pole PFC with 99% efficiency;
  • a single-phase 4.5kW inverter that exceeds 99 efficiency; and
  • an end-customer (Sumolight) high-power LED lighting system that is an order of magnitude smaller and lighter than a silicon-based approach.  

Also at APED, Jason Cuadra, Transphorm's director of Power Electronics Applications, is participating in the following speaker events:

  • PSMA/PELS workshop: 'Power Magnetics @ High Frequency - Solving the Black Magic' (19 March);
  • Industry Session presentation (IS04): 'GaN Takes Server Power Supplies' Power Density to New Heights' (22 March).
