Fraunhofer IAF presents GaN low-voltage designs enabling compact 3-phase motor inverter IC

In battery-powered applications, in the automotive sector and in IT infrastructures, 48V technology is on the rise. In this voltage class, gallium nitride (GaN) power transistors offer the best compromise between safety, compactness and efficiency. Now, Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics (IAF) of Freiburg, Germany has presented integration concepts with GaN-based integrated circuits (ICs) for low-voltage applications…
