Infineon to Highlight GaN, SiC and Si Power Electronics Portfolio

February 16, 2018 by Paul Shepard

Power semiconductor technologies based on advanced GaN, SiC and Si will share the spotlight in the Infineon Technologies AG exhibit at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC). From March 4-8, 2018, Infineon will showcase energy-efficient, reliable and cost-effective semiconductor system solutions that contribute to a better future. The exhibit (Booth 701) takes place at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, San Antonio, Texas.

Exhibits and demonstrations will highlight the growing reliability and market maturity of wide-bandgap power technologies, as well as continued improvements in industry mainstay silicon-based MOSFETs and IGBTs.

Infineon will be showing new XDP™ family digital controllers, intelligent power modules and audio drivers. Also on display are GaN-based boards for telecom, server and consumer electronics applications, SiC MOSFETs and diodes, and automotive-qualified inverter modules.

Infineon will also participate in 15 sessions and seminars during APEC, including:
