Navitas showcasing new GaN power IC technology at China’s Power 2017 conference

At China’s annual multi-city Power 2017 conference (at Shenzhen’s Venetian Hotel, Shanghai’s Zhongyou Sunshine Hotel, and Beijing’s Guobin Hotel on 2, 7 and 15 September, respectively), Navitas Semiconductor Inc of El Segundo, CA, USA is showcasing new gallium nitride (GaN) power IC applications for advanced mobile, industrial and consumer markets.

Founded in 2013, Navitas introduced what it claimed to be the first commercial GaN power ICs. The firm says that its proprietary 'AllGaN' 650V platform monolithically integrates GaN power field-effect transistors (FETs) with logic and analog circuits, enabling smaller, higher-energy-efficiency and lower-cost power for mobile, consumer, enterprise and new energy markets.

Navitas says that, at Power 2017, its executives will also meet with key customers to enable first-to-market, AC-DC applications from 20W to 500W using the firm’s high-speed AllGaN technology.

“Power 2017 is a great opportunity for us to demonstrate the benefits of Navitas GaN technology and enable our Chinese customers to achieve market-leading converter performance,” says VP of sales & marketing Stephen Oliver. “Our high-performance, easy-to-use GaN Power ICs help Chinese designers to deliver next-generation power solutions on schedule and at the right price.”

In February, Navitas launched what it claimed was the first integrated half-bridge GaN power IC, enabling up to a 100x increase in switching speeds while increasing energy savings by 40% or more. In June, the firm announced its 150W AC-DC demonstration board, which has a power density of more than 21W/in3 and efficiency of over 95%, making it half the size of typical commercial designs, it is reckoned.

“Chinese designers are hungry for new, proven solutions that can be used for best-in-class power converters for smartphone, laptop and TV/monitor applications,” comments Daphne Liu, general manager of 21IC China Electronics Network, a strategic partnership between Aichi Nova (Beijing) Information Technology Co Ltd and Arrow Electronics that organizes Power 2017.
