The partnership will increase the distributor’s wide-band hole semiconductor portfolio, commented Gilles Beltran, president, Avnet Silica. “We envisage this cooperation will carry large advantages for patrons working on the slicing fringe of energy system architectures in a big selection of purposes,” he mentioned.
David Carroll, Navitas’ senior vice chairman of worldwide gross sales added that the mix will help designers and engineers to fulfill more and more stringent effectivity and dimension necessities and rules. “With our extremely skilled technical workforce and our European purposes lab, collectively, we will help clients with the absolute best options and quickest time-to-market,” he mentioned.
Navitas’ GaNFast energy ICs are primarily based on its GaNSense know-how and combine energy, drive and management capabilities, autonomous safety and loss-less present sensing. They’re claimed to ship the trade’s highest power effectivity, smallest footprints and the quickest energy conversion efficiency. The most recent household of GaNSense half-bridge ICs permits ac-dc energy provides to realize MHz switching frequencies in soft-switching purposes utilizing a single element, mentioned the corporate.
GaN is characterised by low resistance and excessive frequency switching with purposes for compact energy provides in servers and IT gear in addition to energy provides in EVs, hybrid EVs, photovoltaic inverters and RF switching. Allied Market Analysis valued the worldwide GaN energy system market at $110.3m in 2019 and projected it might attain $1244.9 by 2027 – a CAGR of 35.4% for the forecast interval.
