STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor provider serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, has announced a new family of ST Intelligent and Integrated Gallium Nitride (GaN) solutions, STi2GaN.
Building on ST’s automotive experience, innovations in Smart Power technology, wide bandgap semiconductor materials, and packaging expertise, the STi2GaN family combines a monolithic power stage along with drivers and protections in GaN technology — as well as System-in-Package (SiP) solutions for application-specific ICs with additional processing and control circuitry.
“STi2GaN continues ST’s long success story in compound materials and Smart Power product innovation, targeting mainly automotive applications and the needs of high-density, high-reliability and high-power. Initial offering of STi2GaN solutions suit On-Board Chargers, LiDAR for autonomous driving, bidirectional DC-DC converters, Class-D amplifiers and power conversion systems,” said Alfio Russo, group VP and GM Low Voltage and STi2GaN Solutions Macro Division, STMicroelectronics.
The STi2GaN solutions also use ST’s novel bond-wire-free packaging technology to provide high reliability and performance.
“The new product family aims to leverage the high-power density and efficiency of GaN to offer an industry-unique range of devices in 100V and 650V clusters that ensure scalability, compactness, and outstanding performance,” added Russo.
