The Silicon GaN manufacturer was founded in 2015 and produces eight-inch plates at two sites in China. The company’s high (650V) and low voltage, usually turned off GaN HEMT are used in automotive lidars, data centers, cloud computing, electric vehicles, EV chargers, laptops and other portable devices, mobile phones, chargers and adapters.
At the exhibition and conference in Nuremberg, Germany, Dr. Dennis Marcon, General Manager, Innoscience Europe, presented the topic of barriers to the proliferation of GaN-based power transistors. He said the industry faces two obstacles – price and security of supply (ie mass production).
The company has a capacity of 10,000 eight-inch plates per month and said it wants to increase that number to 70,000 by 2025.
Commenting on the agreement, Nigel Watts, vice president of WPG EMEA, said: “The product is now available and delivery times are much better than traditional silicon alternatives. Design now and produce earlier. ”
The WPG distributor was named the world’s largest electronics distributor by Gartner in March 2022.
