Transphorm at PCIM 2023: Superior GaN Solutions Powering Electric Vehicle Systems to Adapters
- Broadest Power Spectrum Addressed: 1200 V SuperGaN Device Design Resources to be Unveiled as New 650 V Weltrend SuperGaN SiP Design is Showcased
- Unparalleled Reliability, Efficiency, and Performance of SuperGaN Platform to be Demonstrated
GOLETA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$TGAN #5G—Transphorm, Inc. (Nasdaq: TGAN)—a pioneer in and global supplier of high reliability, high performance gallium nitride (GaN) power conversion products—announced today that its PCIM 2023 showcase will underscore the company’s expanding footprint in market applications crossing the power spectrum. Devices on display will demonstrate Transphorm’s ability to support low to high power systems with GaN power conversion solutions offering unparalleled Manufacturability, Designability, Drivability, and Reliability. Attendees can visit Transphorm at Hall 7, Booth 108 during the event on May 9 – 11.
Driving Down BOM Costs
The WT7162RHUG24A, the recently announced SuperGaN® SiP developed with Weltrend Semiconductor, will again be on display following its first showing at APEC 2023. It will be shown alongside Weltrend’s high-efficiency, single-stage 65 W USB-C PD 3.0 + PPS power adapter reference design built with the new integrated circuit. With an overall peak efficiency of ~94.0% and a power density of 26 W/in3, the board presents a total, cost-effective solution for programmable adapters. For SiP samples, contact [email protected].
Demonstrating System Performance Increases
Transphorm’s device portfolio offers a variety of options for engineers seeking unprecedented power conversion performance. These devices come in Performance packages or, should drop-in replacements be desired, pin-to-pin compatible Industry Standard packages. An on-site static demonstration will show how replacing TSMC e-mode devices with Transphorm FETs in a currently available gaming laptop charger significantly improved the system’s performance.
Simplifying GaN Use in 3 kW Inverter Systems
The recently announced TDINV3000W050B-KIT, a 3.0 kW DC-to-AC non-isolated full-bridge inverter evaluation board, will be on display for the first time. It pairs Transphorm’s TP65H050G4WS SuperGaN FET with Microchip Technology’s dsPIC33CK digital signal controller (DSC) board. The DSC board is equipped with pre-programmed firmware to enable understanding and quicken development of SuperGaN solutions in Broad Industrial and Renewable power systems.
Diversifying Automotive GaN Solutions
Transphorm’s technology expertise has enabled the company to set the industry’s key benchmarks for automotive-focused GaN power conversion solutions. Transphorm was first to market with an AEC-Q101 qualified 650 V device. It is also the only GaN device manufacturer to release an AEC-Q101 device qualified to 175°C. And, at PCIM, Transphorm will again achieve a critical milestone by unveiling design resources for the 1200 V GaN device first demonstrated a year ago. This device will complement the company’s already strong 650 V solutions enabling various electric vehicle applications.
