HY-LINE now offering Transphorm 600V GaN Devices in Europe
Transphorm Inc. today announced that it has completed a distribution agreement with HY-LINE Power Components GmbH to stock and distribute its family of 600-Volt GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) in Central Europe. HY-Line's technical expertise will support the growing demand for JEDEC-qualified 600 Volt GaN products that have now grown to the level requiring an expanding sales channel to respond to opportunities, specifically in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
â€œHY-LINE is specialized in offering cutting-edge, energy-saving technology. Transphormâ€™s technical leadership in the emerging GaN technology, including, to-date, being able to offer production volume of 600 Volt GaN-on-Silicon HEMTs, has moved GaN from potential to practical use in high-efficiency power conversion systems,â€ said Jochen Krause, HY-Linesâ€™ CEO. â€œWeâ€™re pleased that this distribution agreement with Transphorm will allow us to offer these unique products to customers in Central Europe who require the power savings that only GaN can achieve.â€
â€œWe selected HY-LINE Power Components based upon their technical expertise and ability to both create and support demand in the rapidly growing segment of the power conversion market,â€ said Transphormâ€™s VP of Sales, Bret Daniels. â€œWith the completion of qualification last year, Transphormâ€™s GaN devices have moved from advanced engineering research into product design and production, which makes this the right time to expand into distribution. We look forward to working with HY-LINE to service our growing sales demand.â€
