China Power Conference Features GaN Systems’ Transistors

Shanghai, China --- Today, gallium nitride (GaN) transistors play an indispensable role in power systems by replacing power IGBTs and MOSFETs with devices that operate more efficiently, and reduce system size, weight and cost. At this year’s 24th China Power Supply Society Conference (CPSSC), GaN Systems will present to power design researchers and engineers an advanced technology session entitled GaN E-HEMT Devices, Principles and Applications.

The presentation is part of a program that introduces the most current power semiconductor devices. Topics covered include new wide bandgap semiconductor technology, in-depth analysis of the structure, characteristic parameters, device selection and protection of high-frequency switching devices used for efficient power application problems. The three hour seminar is scheduled for October 31st, 2016. The program is part of a multi-day conference co-organized by the Power Institute of China and the Shanghai Maritime University.

GaN Systems continues to invest heavily in supporting its Asian customers by providing in-country staff, technical support and resources. This commitment is further extended by providing practical technology workshops, such as the CPSSC event. GaN Systems brings design knowledge to power system engineers, enabling them to rapidly develop the most efficient, state-of-the-art and competitive products that leverage the performance benefits of GaN.

Di Chen, GaN Systems global applications engineering manager, will present the seminar to an audience comprised of several hundred researchers and engineers.

The agenda for Mr. Chen’s workshop follows:

A basic introduction to GaN E-HEMT power transistors
GaN E-HEMT principles and package design
GaN E-HEMT technology and reliability
Driver & component selection
PCB layout and thermal considerations
GaN E-HEMT applications

The event will be located at the Shanghai Maritime University in Shanghai, China.
