Transphorm Bringing the GaN Revolution to Nuremberg

April 30, 2017 by Power Pulse1595211359

At the 2017 Power Conversion and Intelligent Motion (PCIM) Europe expo, Transphorm Inc. will demonstrate high voltage GaN's momentum in the market. Various displays will exhibit the advantages of Transphorm's high voltage GaN FETs when used in power electronics systems including power supplies, servo motors and photovoltaic inverters. Further, the company will showcase its recently announced AEC-Q101 qualified GaN FET—the industry's first automotive-grade GaN technology.

Transphorm’s PCIM showcase will be hosted in the HY-LINE Power Components booth (9-525). Additional demos will be displayed in the GLYN GmbH & Co. booth (9-301). Transphorm will also lead an educational session on high voltage GaN design methods.

Speaking engagement in Session: GaN – Design, EMC and Measurement; Speaker: Philip Zuk, Senior Director of Technical Marketing; Date/Time: Wednesday, May 17 at 14:30; :ocation: Hall 6, Booth 143.

Showcase highlights will include: 3.5kW Integrated Half-Bridge Module Preview: Transphorm’s easy-to-use surface mount half-bridge module is designed to simplify PCB layout and shorten design time. Transphorm will soon offer this module as a building block for bridgeless totem-pole, half-bridge, full-bridge and LLC topologies.

Industry’s First GaN Servo Motor: Targeting 100W to 400W applications, the Yaskawa integrated servo motor uses Transphorm’s GaN FETs to increase system power density and efficiency, to simplify system architecture, and to deliver a dramatic reduction in system size.

Industry’s First GaN Redundant Power Supply: Targeting 500W applications, the Telcodium redundant ac power supply uses Transphorm’s TPH3206PS and TPH3202PS GaN FETs to increase efficiency and power density while dramatically reducing standby power (to less than 1W) and internal temperature yields.

Industry’s First GaN AC-DC Power Supply with Bridgeless Totem-Pole PFC: Targeting 3kW applications, the Bel Power TET3000 uses Transphorm’s TPH3205WS to achieve 80 Plus Titanium efficiency while reducing system size to meet a 1U design.

High Voltage GaN Reference Design Previews: Attendees will have an opportunity to see Transphorm’s 4.2kW PV Inverter (dc-dc, dc-ac) and 3.3kW Totem-Pole PFC reference designs, slated for release later this year. These products exemplify one type of customer design resource provided by Transphorm’s recently announced Silicon Valley Center of Excellence.
