e2v and GaN Systems Sign Master Supply Agreement for A&D Markets
A master supply agreement between e2v, the global leader in the high-reliability semiconductor market, and GaN Systems establishes e2v as the global supplier of GaN Systems' 100V and 650V hi-rel GaN transistor products and customer care for the Aerospace and Defense (A&D) market.
e2v will utilize its infrastructure and 30 years of experience in this area to support the hi-rel market with GaNâ€™s best-in-class and most reliable transistors and evaluation boards. e2v will offer state-of-the-art power management solutions that respond directly to the hi-rel marketâ€™s growing SWaP (Size, Weight and Power) demands.
Mont Taylor, Vice President of Business Development at e2v, commented, â€œOur A&D customers must increase system power density, while reducing size and weight. This global partnership with GaN Systems allows us to extend our A&D portfolio and offer new power technologies to meet these requirements.â€
Larry Spaziani, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at GaN Systems, said, â€œPower designers are routinely reducing the volume and weight of their systems by 4 to 6 times by using GaN transistors as a replacement for silicon devices. Partnering with e2v enables our solutions to reach, supply and support hundreds of A&D electronic systems designers. e2vâ€™s heritage within the A&D market will allow us to extend the availability of our SWaP conscious power solutions and give our A&D customers the specialist support they deserve.â€
