Transphorm’s High Voltage GaN FETs Amp Up Marotta Controls’ Military Grade High Frequency Power Supply17.12.2018 14:00 | Pressemelding
Transphorm Inc.—the leader in the design and manufacturing of the highest reliability and first JEDEC- and AEC-Q101 qualified gallium nitride (GaN) semiconductors—today announced with Marotta Controls that the Aerospace and Defense supplier’s upcoming power supply unit (PSU) replaces incumbent Silicon (Si) MOSFETs with high voltage GaN PQFN devices to offer advanced benefits. Marotta’s latest design operates at high frequency in a conduction-cooled mechanically constrained envelope. The supply’s topology features hard switching and an automatic transformer RESET capability where transistor voltage stresses are clamped to the input voltage. The GaN devices increase the PSU’s efficiency dramatically and alleviate a complex thermal design in the small form factor package. “The demand on our power supplies and expectation of performance is high,” explained Mike Scruggs, Principal Engineer, Marotta Controls. “This particular complex PSU needed to reliably convert and distribute power in a s
