X-GaN transistors and new reference designs
Panasonic X-GaN transistors provide superior switching performance and high reliability and robustness, thanks to their fast switching, highly conductive structure that suppresses current collapse. These benefits are demonstrated in new reference designs of a 3kW totem pole PFC and of a 65W active clamped flyback AC adapter.
GaN bi-directional switches
Panasonic has developed a single chip GaN bi-directional switch capable of operating in 4 quadrants, by adopting an innovative dual gate device structure. This device enables a significant reduction of conduction losses and of the number of components needed in topologies such as multilevel inverters, matrix converters and Vienna rectifiers.
