A World Without Wires

Smart mobile electronic devices have changed the way that we perceive and interact with the world around us. Electric cars, buses, scooters, and bikes are transforming the face of our urban transportation landscape. Autonomous robots in intelligent factories and aerial drones making deliveries are challenging past preconceptions about the ways that we create and distribute…

文章:“ GaN Systems可以寻求子组件装配战略合作伙伴关系”

本文最初发表于 首席执行官表示,GaN Systems可以寻求子组件装配战略合作伙伴。 总部位于加拿大渥太华的氮化镓能源系统公司GaN Systems可能寻求合作伙伴或资本,以扩大其制造子级组件的能力。 Witham拒绝透露财务数据,但据一份行业报告称,该公司是氮化镓晶体管出货量的市场领导者,整体市场规模为100亿美元。 他说,晶体管已在多个市场中使用,该公司的目标是五种应用:消费性设备充电器,数据中心,可再生能源,工业用电机和电动汽车。

Using MOSFET Controllers to Drive GaN E-HEMTs

本文最初发表于Bodo的Power Systems 2019年8月号,作者是高级电力电子应用工程师Qiya Yau Qi和GaN Systems应用工程经理Lujuncheng(Lucas)Lu。这里提供一小部分摘要,其余的部分,包括相关的图形和表格,可以通过下载下面的PDF来阅读。       在氮化镓(GaN)之前,硅(Si)MOSFET几十年来一直是适配器应用中功率的标准。结果,市场上许多现有的控制器,包括功率因数校正(PFC)和DC-DC控制器,已经将硅驱动器集成到控制器芯片中。这些控制器已被证明是一种经济高效的完整解决方案。但是,Si MOSFET的劣质因数(FOM)限制了控制器的高开关频率性能,无法满足现代电源系统至关重要的高功率密度要求。 GaN功率晶体管已经证明了其与Si MOSFET相比在高频性能方面的优势,并且继续取得重大进步,包括改善驱动功率晶体管的简易性。增强模式GaN(E-HEMT)由栅极和源极之间的正电压驱动,类似于N沟道Si MOSFET,为驱动器件提供了熟悉的解决方案。 GaN Systems提供了一种解决方案,可轻松使用MOSFET控制器12 V输出电压来驱动GaN 7 V栅极输入,而无需外部或集成的附加驱动器……。
