Efficient gallium nitride voltage converters for energy systems of the future
With the help of the semiconductor gallium nitride, considerable energy savings in electronic systems can be achieved. Due to its physical properties, electronic components based on gallium nitride can be operated more efficiently, with higher capacities and lower cooling efforts, than conventional silicon devices. A new generation of voltage converters promises energy-saving, fast and reliably operating systems – even in high temperatures. With new, cost-efficient production technologies, the improved components could soon enter serial production.
