e2v to supply GaN Systems' 100V and 650V hi-rel GaN transistors to global aerospace & defense industry

A master supply agreement has established e2v inc of Milpitas, CA, USA (which provides solutions, sub-systems and components to the medical & science, aerospace & defense and commercial & industrial markets) as the global supplier of 100V and 650V high-reliability GaN transistor products (and customer care) of GaN Systems Inc of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, a fabless developer of gallium nitride (GaN)-based power switching semiconductors for power conversion and control applications, to the aerospace & defense (A&D) market.

e2v will utilize its infrastructure and 30 years of experience in this area to support the hi-rel market with GaN Systems' transistors and evaluation boards. The firm will offer power management solutions that respond directly to the hi-rel market's growing SWaP (size, weight and power) demands.

"Our A&D customers must increase system power density, while reducing size and weight," notes e2v's VP of business development Mont Taylor. "This global partnership with GaN Systems allows us to extend our A&D portfolio and offer new power technologies to meet these requirements," he adds.

"Power designers are routinely reducing the volume and weight of their systems by 4-6 times by using GaN transistors as a replacement for silicon devices," says GaN Systems' VP of sales & marketing Larry Spaziani. "Partnering with e2v enables our solutions to reach, supply and support hundreds of A&D electronic systems designers," he adds. "e2v's heritage within the A&D market will allow us to extend the availability of our SWaP-conscious power solutions and give our A&D customers the specialist support they deserve."
