GaN Systems and Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs collaborate on GaN technology to meet global power challenges
GaN Systems Inc of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada – a fabless developer of gallium nitride (GaN)-based power switching semiconductors for power conversion and control – and Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) have entered into a Letter of Intent to collaborate on expanding the economic and technical benefits of GaN technology to Taiwan’s electronics manufacturers. The aim is to meet the global challenges of unsustainable increases in power consumption, combating climate change, implementing cleantech technologies, and meeting green CO2-reduction initiatives.
To further advance Taiwan’s role in the electronics industry, recognizing the importance and benefits of GaN, the MOEA will provide assistance to GaN Systems to extend its in-country business and representation. This agreement brings together the GaN transistor manufacturer with the government body that oversees Taiwan’s electronics industry. Working together, the alliance will collaborate to help solve global power challenges.
