Intersil Extends Leading Radiation Tolerant Portfolio with Gallium Nitride Power Conversion ICs for Satellite Applications

MILPITAS, CA -- Intersil Corporation plans to extend its market leading radiation tolerant portfolio to include Gallium Nitride (GaN) power conversion ICs for satellites and other harsh environment applications.

Intersil will couple its radiation hardened FET drivers with GaN FETs to deliver performance that leapfrogs existing products that rely on traditional high-rel FET technologies. GaN provides better conductivity and switching characteristics that enable several system benefits, including a reduction in system power losses.

Intersil is collaborating with Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC), the first to introduce enhancement-mode gallium-nitride-on-silicon (eGaN®) FETs as power MOSFET replacements, and a leading provider of enhancement-mode gallium nitride power transistors. Intersil's new products based on the eGaN technology will be sampling this summer.
