STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, has revealed a new family of GaN power semiconductors in the STPOWER portfolio that can significantly reduce energy use and enable slimmer designs in a variety of electronic products.
“Commercializing GaN-based products is the next frontier for power semiconductors, and we are ready to realize the potential of this exciting technology,” said Edoardo Merli, Power Transistor Macro-Division GM and group VP of STMicroelectronics’ Automotive and Discrete Group. “Today, ST is announcing the first product in a new family, belonging to the STPOWER portfolio, that can deliver breakthrough performance for a large variety of power supplies across consumer, industrial, and automotive applications.”
This equipment is produced in high volumes worldwide and, with greater efficiency, can realize significant CO2 savings. In higher-power applications, ST’s PowerGaN devices also benefit telecom power supplies, industrial motor drives, solar inverters, and electric vehicles and chargers.
“We are committed to progressively building up our PowerGaN portfolio to enable customers to design more efficient, smaller power supplies everywhere,” added Merli.
