Transphorm Strengthens 900 V GaN Portfolio with Second FET25.6.2019 16:00:00 EEST | Tiedote
Transphorm Inc.—the leader in the design and manufacturing of the highest reliability high-voltage (HV) Gallium Nitride (GaN) semiconductors—today introduced its second 900 V FET, the Gen III TP90H050WS, enhancing the industry’s only 900 V GaN product line. These devices now enable three-phase industrial systems and higher voltage automotive electronics to leverage GaN’s speed, efficiency and power density. Further, the new FET’s platform is based on Transphorm’s 650 V predecessor, the only JEDEC- and AEC-Q101-qualified HV GaN technology. As such, system developers can design with confidence in its quality and reliability. The TP90H050WS has a typical on-resistance of 50 mOhm with a 1000 V transient rating, offered in a standard TO-247 package. The TP90H050WS can reach power levels of 8 kW in a typical half bridge while maintaining greater than 99 percent efficiencies. Its figures of merit for Ron*Qoss (resonant switching topologies) and Ron*Qrr (hard switching bridge topologies) are t
