Manufacturers of high voltage GaN-on-silicon transistors have yet to deliver, but GaN Systems promises a raft of products this year.
Watch this space: GaN Systems intends to commercialise its GaN-on-silicon technology this year.
As industrial, power and communications industries demand semiconductors with faster switching speeds and unbeatable breakdown voltages, manufacturers of GaN-on-silicon devices are getting ready to deliver. Latest forecasts are edging towards a billion dollar market come the end of the decade, and one company keen to cash in, is Canada-based GaN Systems.
“2014 is going to be a pretty big year for GaN Systems,” says company chief executive, Jim Witham. “We’ve just announced our families of 100V and 600V parts, with a nice range from 10A to 80A, we’re getting these into the market place, expanding our presence and gaining customer design wins.”
