Transphorm Releases Industry's First JEDEC Qualified 600V GaN HEMT 600V Gallium Nitride(GaN) High Electron Mobility Transistors (HEMT) employs patented EZ-GaNTM technology; establishes vital milestone in development of GaN devices
GOLETA, Calif., Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Transphorm Inc. today announced the JEDEC qualification of the company's TPH2006PS, GaN HEMT on SiC substrate, making it the industry's first qualified 600V HEMT device. The TPH2006PS, based on its patented, high-performance EZ-GaNTM technology, combines low switching and conduction losses resulting in reduced energy loss of up to 50% compared to conventional silicon-based power conversion designs, today. The TO-220-packaged device features RDS(on) of 150 mΩ, Qrr of 42 nC and high frequency switching capability that enables compact, lower cost systems.
"Our team has accomplished the first qualification of a 600 Volt GaN Transistor product, allowing our customer-partners to now introduce energy saving products, Powered-by-TransphormTM", said Primit Parikh, President of Transphorm. "This development also lays to rest any doubts that high voltage GaN transistors can indeed be successfully qualified."
