Digi-Key to provide global online distribution of Navitas’ GaNFast power ICs

Navitas Semiconductor Inc of El Segundo, CA, USA and global, full-service component distributor Digi-Key Electronics of Thief River Falls, MN, USA have announced a distribution agreement to provide worldwide, 24-hour availability and accelerate market penetration and revenue ramp of GaNFast power ICs.

Founded in 2014, Navitas introduced what it claimed to be the first commercial GaN power ICs. The firm says that its proprietary ‘AllGaN’ process design kit (PDK) monolithically integrates GaN power field-effect transistors (FETs) with GaN logic and analog circuits, enabling smaller, higher-energy-efficiency and lower-cost power for mobile, consumer, enterprise and new energy markets.

The GaNFast power ICs enable power systems to simultaneously achieve MHz-frequency and high-efficiency operation. This translates to smaller, faster, lighter and lower-cost power conversion in mobile fast chargers and adapters, the Internet of Things (IoT), TVs, electric/hybrid electric vehicles (EV/HEV), LED lighting and new energy solutions.

“GaNFast ICs are the ideal, easy-to-use, robust, ‘digital-in, power-out’ solution and now, with Digi-Key’s best-in-class service, this technology is readily available to every power electronics designer around the world,” says Stephen Oliver, VP of sales & marketing.

The NV6113, NV6115 and NV6117 single GaNFast power ICs are 650V-rated and available in 5mm x 6mm QFN packages. A series of videos and technical papers introduces GaNFast technology, applications and end-customer examples. Product datasheets and application-specific design kits enable fast implementation for new and upgraded designs.

“Integrating the GaN gate driver, GaN FET and GaN logic into a single package simplifies the circuit design,” says David Stein, VP of global supplier management at Digi-Key. “Our 24/7 global support network with the integration of GaNFast power ICs will be a powerful combination to accelerate the development of a new class of power systems.”
