GaN Systems’ CEO delivering PCIM Europe keynote

GaN Systems Inc of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada (a fabless developer of gallium nitride-based power switching semiconductors for power conversion and control applications) says that at PCIM Europe 2019 (Power Conversion and Intelligent Motion) in Nuremberg, Germany (7-9 May) its CEO Jim Witham is delivering a keynote presentation ‘GaN and Industry 4.0 – A Small Change that is Revolutionizing the Industry’ (9 May, 8:45am, in Room Brüssel 1). Also, following the keynote, he is hosting a Q&A session at 12:20-12:50pm in Room Mailand.

Witham will share his perspective on ‘Industry 4.0’ and how power electronics is playing a big role in breaking down the many technology challenges affecting this sector, especially the hardware innovation that needs to happen in the hundreds of millions of motors, motor drives, robots and robotics needed in today’s industrial spaces.

Industrial use accounts for more than 40% of the world’s electricity consumption, with two-thirds of that used by industrial motors alone. In the midst of the fourth industrial revolution, new technology and energy requirements necessitate innovation in motor drives and robotics and in the data centers that support smart factories and facilities, says GaN Systems. GaN is advancing this revolution by enabling smaller, higher-efficiency motors and motor drives as well as smaller and higher-precision robotics. As they move to the new levels of autonomy and precision needed to support Industry 4.0, robots will greatly benefit in advancements in motors and wireless charging, the firm adds.

In addition, several GaN Systems’ experts are participating in the following speaker sessions:

  • 7 May (12.00-13.00, Hall 7, Booth 543) - INDUSTRY FORUM: ‘Getting Going with GaN’ by Jim Witham and others – The session will look at the benefits that can be achieved by using GaN and the best practices for designing products with GaN;
  • 8 May (14:30-15:30, Hall 7, Booth 543) - BODO PODIUM DISCUSSION ON WIDE BAND GAP DEVICES: ‘GaN – Devices are Mature’ by Jim Witham;
  • 8 May (15:15-17:15, Foyer Ground Floor Entrance NCC Mitte) - POSTER SESSION: ‘Low cost 50W Class EF2 PA for Magnetic Resonance Wireless Power Transfer Applications’ by Tiefeng Shi;
  • 9 May (14:50-15:15, Room Mailand) - ORAL SESSION: ‘Parasitics Optimization for GaN HEMTs in Conventional Housing-type Power Modules’ by Lucas Lu;
  • 9 May (15:15-15:35, Room Brüssel 1) - ORAL SESSION: ‘The Effect of Dynamic On-state Resistance to System Losses in GaN-based Hard-Switching Applications’ by Roy Hou.
